The former Moe Levy’s location at Assembly and Lady streets will soon be revived in the form of a breakfast/brunch/lunch eatery called Famous Toastery, according to The Arnold Cos., which is redeveloping the site.
The North Carolina-based company opened shop in Huntersville in 2005 and franchised in 2013. The eatery now has eight locations in North Carolina and two in South Carolina — in Tega Cay and Indian Land. The franchise has a dozen more restaurants scheduled to roll out in the Carolinas — and one in New York — during the next year.
Famous Toastery offers breakfast items such as stuffed French toast, a “Northwestern” omelet with fresh herbs and goat cheese, and a sunrise burrito with homemade salsa. Brunch and lunch include a tofu fresco salad, bacon and bleu wrap, hot dogs and gourmet burgers.
The space that once held Moe Levy’s and the Howards Sports totals 33,000 square feet and retains its original hardwood floors and brick walls. Construction on the site will begin this spring. Two additional retail shops are expected to locate there as well, but they have yet to be named.
