Parmys, which opened in November at 125 First Ave. between East Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place, closed Monday for a mini makeover.
Per the Parmys website:
We apologize that we will not be open to serve you, but we are also thrilled to reopen this Monday, October 20 as
Ravagh Persian Grill! It is such an honor to be joining our Ravagh family to grill up traditional Persian dishes for all to enjoy!
Here's background on Parmys via the Times in April:
The chef, Mojgan Raoufi, had never cooked in a restaurant before, having spent much of her professional life in a hospital lab. She runs Parmys with her younger brother, Amir Raoufi, who previously managed the Edgewater, N.J., branch of Ravagh Persian Grill, a mini-chain owned by their older sister’s family.
There are currently Ravagh Persian Grills on East 30th Street and on the Upper East Side.
Previously on EV Grieve:
Parmys Persian Fusion coming soon to First Avenue
Parmy's was good. I'm a little confused as to what the point of this re-branding is, especially so soon. I don't think it ever looks good when a place cycles through a bunch of names and incarnations in a short period of time.
Parmys was great, this sucks. They were reasonably priced and delicious. The residents are transient, the businesses are transient - is anything even real anymore? Maybe I should just be preparing for the ebola epidemic. One thing we do have here are plenty of nasty spitters.
I miss Prana!
LOL to 12:15PM. Yes, bring back Prana! and Native Farms too while you're at it.
Parmys owner is the sister of the owner of Ravagh. When Parmy was not sufficiently successful to keep its doors open, the sibling stepped in and took over!
I had lunch at Parmys once, and it was uninspiring.
