Founder Mike Daryoush first opened Moby's Luncheonette in 1989. The success of the restaurant's Persian dishes inspired its transition to Moby Dick House of Kabob, which now has more than 20 locations throughout Maryland, D.C., and Virginia, according to its website.
The restaurant has been working on a rebrand during the last two years, Momeni said, and the Baltimore shop will serve as a model for new locations going forward.
"It's going to have our newest completed concept as far as it relates to that ambience and atmosphere," Momeni said. "This location is going to look different from all the other ones we've done."
