In Aurora, the metro area's only Egyptian restaurant, Koshari Time, is now closed. If you were lucky enough to try the carb-heavy namesake dish (made with macaroni noodles, lentils, rice, fried onions and chickpeas) or the equally tasty hawawshi flatbread sandwiches, you'll know that the closing is a loss to the city's international restaurant scene. Also closing this week was Jack's Uptown Grille, which took over the former home of the still-missed P17 in April 2017.
