'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
