Looks like a Middle Eastern BYO rivalry is shaping up.
The spot at the southeast corner of 13th and Pine Streets that was Leila Cafe will become King Tut, serving what Egyptian-born building owner Thamer Seoudi calls "ancient cuisine built on nature." He also asserts that he is a direct descendant of Tutankhamun and that he owns another King Tut location in Glassboro, N.J. Menu will include samak tahini (a fish dish) and some Greek specialties plus hookahs. He expects to open about Dec. 1, serving on two levels plus outside. Seoudi says he and Leila owner Mohamad Kammoun had a falling out.
