Persian Restaurant in South Beach, Florida, is closing for good.
Owner David F. Fariq was reportedly laid off from his restaurant, which is owned by his son.
He was the sole employee.
The restaurant was open for about four months.
Fariq’s father, Hussein Fariz, told The Times of Israel that he was “shocked and saddened” by the news.
The owner’s son told The Jerusalem Post that the family had no plans to reopen the restaurant.
The news was first reported by The Times Of Israel.
The restaurant was a favorite among the locals in Miami, and the restaurant’s owner was an established local.
It’s been around for more than a decade, and it’s known for its Mediterranean dishes and Persian cuisine.
Fazladdin Zia, the restaurant manager, told the newspaper that the owner was a former restaurant manager who “was known to be the best cook in Miami.”
Zia said the family was still working to reopen, and that the restaurant will continue to serve Persian cuisine and be open to the public.
