As a former resident and longtime vendor at the Arts and Heritage Festival, Elias Kassouf knew plenty about what Carnegie had to offer.

He liked enough of what he saw to bring his business there.

Suzy's Sandwiches & Deli, the restaurant Kassouf co-owns with his wife, Suzy, opened Monday at the former East Main Deli site located at 109 East Main Plaza.

“I just liked the area,” Kassouf said. “I liked the neighborhood, between businesses and the residential area.”

The business, which was formerly based in East Liberty, specializes in Mediterranean food such as gyros and baba ghannouj with some American choices such as meatball and sausage hoagies.

Kassouf said he considers the gyros his restaurant's specialty.

“It's all homemade, the sauce and everything,” he said.

Carnegie Mayor Jack Kobistek said at a December council meeting he hoped to set up a roadside stand in warmer weather, but Kassouf said he hadn't had any official discussions on that end yet.
