all who wander are not lost

Looks like MetroTimes didnt pull out their display rack fast enough. Maybe they can buy it back at the auction. Ha !

During these times of paranoid Islamo-hysteria its really difficult to tell who was shadier in this story, the La Shish family or the US government. Regardless of what really went down, the folks that actually ran these restaurants and made them so wonderful will be dearly missed. Hopefully all employees were paid and found decent work elsewhere.

  • From my understanding the family behind the La Shish brand MAY have had some shady history but the people who independently opened and operated La Shish franchises with no connection to the alleged troubles are the real victims. They ran fine establishments and employed honest workers and I just hope they are able to find employment in our troubled times. To those folks, thank you for many a great meal.

  • Indeed, it’s a shame. I think you sum it up well, “its really difficult to tell who was shadier in this story, the La Shish family or the US government”. I think both sides erred pretty badly here, and in the end, the dining public ended up losing. I hope some of the hardworking talent that made my past visits to La Shish tasty and enjoyable can help make other Middle Eastern places in the area better.
