Shawarma House, the Middle Eastern grill which launched on Milwaukee’s East Side in 2014, will host a grand opening for its second location in Brookfield on Thursday, Dec. 8. 

The new restaurant is located at 17385 W. Blue Mound Rd., just west of Calhoun in the former home of O What a Day Cafe, which closed this past spring.

The Brookfield Shawarma House will offer counter service and the same menu as the East Side location, including items like falafel, hummus, soup, salad and kebabs, along with chicken and beef shawarma.

The grand opening will feature a ribbon cutting on Dec. 8 at 10:30 a.m., followed by $4 sandwiches all day long.

Shawarma House in Brookfield will be open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
