A peek through the window of the spot on 29th Street, Boulder's bastion for fast-casual concepts, revealed a finished space, where diners move through a line selecting pita, plates piled with meats and accouterments, laffa (baked flour tortilla-like flatbread) or Mediterranean salads.
The crew is undergoing training over the next few days, and the restaurant will open with plenty of fanfare, including a tote giveaway for the first 100 customers and a prize wheel, on December 22.
