A Shiraz Mediterranean Grill sign was noticed today on the building formerly occupied by The Planet Bistro. This will be a new location  at 1565 Bardstown Rd.  (in addition to their other five locations in Louisville). This was confirmed by a graphic on their website that simply states a new location is coming to Bardstown Rd. this spring, followed by a phone call where they told Food & Dining they plan to open the third weekend in March.

According to their site, the restaurant’srstory began when Azar and Ata Akram moved to Louisville from Persia in the 70s. By the 80s, they were being asked to make food for friends and parties. Ata and their sons, Ramin and Ashcon, would set up homemade equipment  to serve the same  food they serve today.
