(Updated 3:45 p.m.) Mediterranean restaurant La’Baik held its grand opening this weekend.

The restaurant at 2309 Mount Vernon Avenue is owned by the Abdel-Hay family and serves falafel, gyros, shawarma and more, along with coffee.

La’Baik opened where Stomping Ground was. The restaurant briefly converted into a taco restaurant called Rubia’s Tacos, which then closed earlier this year.

La’Baik is open Tuesday and Wednesday from 11 a.m.-8 p.m., and Thursday through Sunday from 7:30 a.m.-8 p.m.
