Another swap is on the horizon for Avanti Food & Beverage this summer.

Kaya Kitchen, an Asian street food joint from chef Lon Symensma’s ChoLon Restaurant Concepts, plans to open this July, replacing Souk Shawarma on the second floor.

The new restaurant would serve “modern interpretations and traditionally-inspired dishes,” according to a release. That includes things like dim sum, banh mi sandwiches and noodle soups.

“Our guests have been asking for dishes like pho and banh mi since our opening almost two years ago,” Avanti co-founder Patrick O’Neill said in a statement. “We’re excited to have Kaya Kitchen onboard to continue to be able to offer our guests elevated cuisine at affordable prices.”

The turnover isn’t the only change on the second floor. Bamboo Sushi is moving out and QuickFish Poke Bar is moving in this July, too.

There’s no exact opening date for Kaya Kitchen yet, but hours are expected to be 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday.
