Petra Returns to Oxford

26 Jul

According to the Col. Reb Sez blog, Petra Mediterranean Cuisine is returning to Oxford, albeit into much smaller quarters.

Petra owner Maher Alqasas is setting up shop in the former location of Palmer’s (which is now inside Castle Hill), across the street from the James Food Center.

The new location will be B.Y.O.B. and should be open in a couple of weeks with seating for 14 inside and additional seating outside.

For the full scoop, check out the blog posting here.

UPDATE 8/17/11: Petra is now open every day from 5:00 p.m. until 10:30 p.m. Lunch hours will be added next week.

    Woo Hoo!
    I loved Petra. Used to have an office right down the street. A great excuse to eat lunch there all the time.
    I Loved the Fries! Hope they come back too!

    Where is James Food Center? I love this blog, I don’t even know half these places exist!!

      James Food Center is the BP gas station on Jackson Avenue East between Oxford Bicycle Company and the Lafayette County Detention Center. It’s in the same complex as the post office.

        “It’s in the same complex as the post office.”

        I love it, I’ve never heard that roach & flea infested corner** called a “complex” before, too funny! 🙂

        Well, allow me to retort: Although the James Food Center is an oasis within an urban milieu, it’s campus-like setting evokes a homey atmosphere evocative of a simpler time.


        ** The new Petra is clean across the street, so don’t be dissuaded from eating there.

        Thanks, Bob. “Complex” might not be the most accurate label, but sometimes (most times) I prefer humor to accuracy.
