Al Amir, 629 Main Street: February 2015   2 comments

Posted at 11:40 am in closing



I noticed an odd ad for Al Amir in the Free Times the other week, the wording of which was unusual enough that I suspected that one of its Main Street locations, at University Corner across from the the old Towers was gone. Driving by the other night proved that to in fact be the case. The spot is now occupied by another Middle Eastern restaurant, Sahara on Main. I thought I had a good shot of Al Amir here, but all I can locate now is a shot where you can barely see it in the corner, so I'll just go with these pix of the new storefront.

The other Al Amir on Main, The Epicurean by Al Amir at 1734 in the old The Elite Epicurean location is still there.

  1. The location you mention above in the old Elite Epicurean / LaVecchias spot is very, very slow. I rarely see more than a table or two at a time in there. I hope they pick up up and do not close as well.

  2. Just a few days ago one of my colleagues made the comment that it seemed like living in Columbia was all about chasing Al-Amir. I liked this location, but I've been less impressed with the Epicurean by Al-Amir on North Main. Mostly because of the staff. They have been clueless the couple of times we have eaten lunch there.
