JOON, a restaurant opened by Laila Borokhim, closed this past weekend, according to a Facebook post.

JOON served Persian-inspired cuisine. JOON replaced Burgrito’s at the start of 2019. Borokhim, who previously owned Layla’s Persian Food, also owns Noosh.

In the Facebook post, Borokhim cited overpriced rent, staffing, parking and weather among some of the reasons for closing.
