A new eatery is making its way to Cherrydale, although most of the details of the future business are still a mystery.

Signs have gone up on the ground level of 3800 Lofts (3800 Lee Highway) announcing that Kite Runner Cafe is coming soon. It will sit between Subway, which opened earlier this year, and House of Steep, which opened in September.

No permits have yet been displayed and no workers could be spotted on site. So far we have not been able to get in touch with the owner to get more information about the type of restaurant Kite Runner Cafe will be or when it’s scheduled to open.

    Named after the book? Is so, what an odd choice.

  • nom de guerre

    Speaking of the House of Steep, their Asian salad features shredded organic napa cabbage and chopped green onions with locally sourced, sustainable hammertoe clippings, bunion shavings, and corns topped with a tamari, fish sauce and sesame oil vinaigrette. Pedicure fish, aka Garra Rufa are extra.

      Hammertoe clippiings?

      Bunion shavings?


      Where do you come up with this stuff?

        I always thought the ped egg would be great for grating parmesan.

    • omGGG! my thoughts exactly! “tea house & foot sanctuary” HHHHORK lol

    • the reverse Richman

      I think that I just lost my appetite………

  • drax

    Afghan food of course.

    • anti-drax

      How do you know drax? Perhaps its an Afghan-Asian fusion cuisine experience or just another froyo. Drax says therefore it is….ha

      • drax

        Don’t touch me, anti-drax – we’ll both explode!

        You’re right, though, it might be a restaurant “concept.”

    • disturbed

      thats disturbing, when you consider what happens to the title character of that novel.

  • Novanglus

    The owner has the same last name as an Afghan cabinet member, and the book is set in Afghanistan.

    Afghan food? Just a guess…

  • Newtdog73

    I have been all over Afghanistan and I still can’t tell anyone exactly what Afghan cuisine is besides goat and bread and the occasional fig.

  • novasteve

    Will women be allowed in?
