For the past four days, Chicken Kabob -- the fast-casual Persian joint that Foad Aftahi opened last fall at 9678 East Arapahoe Road in Greenwood Village -- has been mysteriously closed. The phone mailbox is full, and there's no message posted on the place to indicate Chicken Kabob's status -- beyond that "sorry, we're closed" sign on the door.
This was one of our favorite food finds of 2011, so we're keeping our fingers crossed that Chicken Kabob will fly again.
