Possible shopping plaza redevelopment forces restaurant into relocation.
Sheik Burritos n Kabobs is closing its Peidmont Road location of three years with plans to reopen in spring, 2013, Atlanta Magazine first reported.
The Persian/Southwestern fusion restaurant hopes to relocate to¬†Midtown or Poncey-Highland, according to the report.

“We’re very excited to announce we’ll be opening back up again tonight for dinner as well as tomorrow,” according to the Facebook post. “Join us tonight or for lunch Saturday!”
“You asked and we’re giving you one more chance to get your Sheik fix until we find our new place!”
Sheik originally announced it would close its doors on Sunday, Dec. 23.
