Ta-eem Grill, the popular fast-casual kosher Mediterranean spot nestled into Melrose, has come out with a complete redesign, using mostly rustic wood paneling (still in popular use apparently), exposed incandescents, and plenty of seating. After shuttering for about two weeks, the former hole-in-the-wall plans to re-open today pending a final health inspection. The shawarma and falafel specialist sports high Yelp ratings, though most of the attention tends to focus on the huge laffa sandwiches. Service runs 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., closed Saturday. [EaterWire]
