The name means "son of Andre" and is a reference to the original owner, Andre, who opened the first Lebanon location in 1976 (today there are eight, including one in Lebanon). Managing partner Robert Magiet, who launched fast-food Indian spot Curried in 2011, says the original owner's grandsons decided to open an Abou Andre in Chicago because of its diverse culture and reasonable rent. an open kitchen where cooks prepare chicken kebab ($7.99) and beef and lamb qawarma hummus plates and Tahini-topped twists include the falafel wrap fried fresh to order and made with fava beans instead of the more common chickpea base. Love oversized Lebanese-style pitas? They're baked for the restaurant by a local Lebanese bakery, and you can pick up extras for $1. Lentil soup and a new take on a chicken kebab are in the works to debut in the coming weeks.
