Yay for Ray

Ray's Lebanese Cuisine celebrates its grand opening in Burnside

Aren’t happy endings the best? When renovations and rent hikes forced Ray’s Lebanese Cuisine out of Scotia Square Mall’s food court last March, he found a bigger, brighter new spot in Burnside to serve up the award-winning eats that he’d been dishing out to the downtown lunch crowd for 31 years. Last Friday, after a summer of getting his footing in the new neighbourhood, Ray Khattar had his grand opening at 75 Akerley Drive, feeding over 500 eager diners and doling out celebratory cake and desserts. Here's a photo we snapped while celebrating the new beginning for the friendly face behind the legendary falafel and heaping shawarma platters.
