It's not unusual for restaurant construction (or really any construction) to face delays. In mid-January, the Paragarys team told Cowtown Eats that the expected to reopen the restaurant in March. Before that, they had hoped to be open in January 2015. The original plan when they closed in February 2014 was to be closed 2 months.
Whenever Paragary's does finally reopen, I look forward to paying their remodeled digs a visit.

Queen Sheeba: A True Food Adventure - Submerge takes you on an experience with food that originates more than 8,900 miles away. But for this adventure you only need to travel to 17th and Broadway, where Queen Sheba brings the foreign spices of Ethiopian cuisine back home to the capital city. One of the best parts of eating Ethiopian food is that there isn’t a utensil in sight—no knives, spoons or forks seated neatly on a napkin next to your plate. It is a true hands-on experience. But it’s not as messy as it sounds; you use pieces of thin, spongy sourdough bread called injera to scoop up bits of your meal into your hand before you devour it. The injera are served as rolls in a small basket where you can rip pieces off for your meal. Amy Serna in Submerge Mag.
