    ST. CLAIR — Residents and visitors will soon have a new option for lunch and dinner.

    Lu Lu Lebanese is aiming to be open by the end of the week.

    Owner Andy Faour said he and his family happened to be in St. Clair and couldn't find any places that had shawarma, let alone any kind of Lebanese food. Seeing an opportunity to bring something new to the area, Faour decided to open Lu Lu Lebanese.

    Lebanese food is fast, healthy and overall delicious, he said.

    "I've tried many different kinds of food and Lebanese is honestly the best," he said. "There's a lot of flavor and has great seasoning. I'm not just saying that because I'm Lebanese."

    Lu Lu Lebanese is located at 1179 South Carney Drive in St. Clair. The space used to be a different restaurant called Black and Bleu.

    Lu Lu Lebanese will be open from 10:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday, 10:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Suday.

    Faour said the restaurant will have its soft opening later this week.

    Faour moved to the United States from Lebanon 40 years ago and immediately entered the food industry. He started as a dishwasher and moved he way up to a cook to now being an owner of two restaurants. His other restaurant, Lov-A-Burger, is located in Chesterfield.

    Expected menu items include shawarma, falafel, and other various Lebanese dishes. The full menu is also posted to the Lu Lu Lebanese Facebook page .

    Faour said he has seen a lot of positive feedback from the community. He said many people seem excited to have Lebanese food in the area.

    Faour said when brainstorming restaurant names with his wife, they wanted the name to be catchy and easy to remember. Eventually, his wife suggested "Lu Lu" to be at the start of the name.

    Lu Lu is the nickname for Faour's youngest daughter, Liliana.

    Faour said he and the rest of the restaurant staff are excited to have people come in and try their food.
