Today I was driving home from dropping my son off at school and as I approached 18th and Central, noted that the sinage was off the Hyderabad House restaurant that is attached to the Patel's, prompting me to take a closer look as I drove past. In the window, I noted a handwritten sign on a piece of tagboard: Coming soon, Biryani's (or something like that).
Anyone have any scoop? Is this a totally new place? Are they just changing the name? If I recall correctly, it seems that Biryani is a dish of the Hyderabad region, so I am hoping that this is just a name change or something along those lines. I believe that the restaurant is being run by the same people that own Patel's, so it seems strange that they would close it or sell it to someone else. I don't think I will have time this afternoon to stop in and ask them about it. Anyway, I am going to be so bummed if this place changes much, because it sounded like they had a great lunch buffet that I was looking forward to trying.
