'Hummus With a Hummus Flavor' at New Priya Lounge?

Erin Perkins is the editor of Eater Carolinas, covering the food and restaurant scene across North and South Carolina.

The owners of hookah bar Torch took the opportunity to remodel the space after a brief fire in June. The new concept is named Priya. Yes, there will still be waterpipes, but now with a more Moroccan influence. The interiors will be revamped into a "Middle Eastern oasis [with] a laid back vibe and a unique Mediterranean setting."

On the old Torch menu, there were various hookah flavor selections, fruity martinis, and some fairly entertaining food descriptions. "Dragon Shrimp: shrimp with dragon flavor," "Mushroom Tart: mushroom with tart flavor," and "Hummus: hummus with a hummus flavor," were among our favorites. No word yet if these menu items will be carried on to the new place. However, it's a good probability that most of the patrons heading to Priya won't be there for the food, but rather for the lounge interiors and smoking apparatuses.
