The space which once housed the iconic Middle Eastern restaurant, Abu's, 1978 N. Farwell Ave., will soon become a new Thai eatery called Jow Nai Foquet.

Recently, Aomjai Nueakaew applied for a Class B Tavern license which would permit the establishment, unlike Abu's, to serve alcohol. It would be nice to sit in a window seat and enjoy a glass of wine while watching the Farwell Avenue bustle, but I will always miss Abu's rosewater lemonade.

Stay tuned to for more information when it becomes available.
