Sales didn't generate the cash flow needed to keep the 40-seat restaurant afloat while it established itself, said owner Aboud Kaskorkis. He said he would know more later this week about his next move. “When you open a restaurant, you should have operating money set aside. We ran out of money before we opened,” Kaskorkis said.
