Abouzaki said he thinks VCU students are likely to welcome his vegetarian-friendly menu.

“We will have a lot of vegetarian items,” he said. “All the students like the falafel and hummus.”

Shawarma Shack will also serve lamb, beef and chicken dishes in a fast-casual setting, Abouzaki said.

Bigs BBG (933 W. Grace Street) closed in January. The link above has more details and thoughts on the crowded restaurant market.
