Work is underway on a new kabab restaurant in Shirlington.
Moby Dick House of Kabob will be opening later this year in the former Medi space. The fast casual Mediterranean restaurant, which served pitas, salads and rice bowls, closed this past fall.
Moby Dick serves Persian cuisine, including various salads, pita bread sandwiches, rice plates and kabobs. The company has around 20 locations in the D.C. area, including one in Clarendon at 3000 Washington Blvd.
So far, no opening date has been announced. A call Thursday morning to a spokesman for the company has not been returned.
