Haitham Iman of Carmen's Deli

I’ve known Haitham Iman for years. I’m sure many of you who have attended events at the David Ponitz center, Building 12, of Sinclair know him too.

He’s the always smiling, nice guy, who makes sure your experience is exceptional when it comes to the food at events.

Now, he’s the guy on the grill- only it’s his grill, in his and his lovely wife Carmen’s new restaurant on the first floor of the 5/3rd tower in the old Swisher’s Too location.

They had a long line today at lunch, and he had complimentary chips and dip for people who were patiently waiting. I ordered a gyro, chips and a soft drink for just under $7. They aren’t taking plastic just yet- and phone orders aren’t happening just yet, but give them time.

Carmen’s Deli is at 110 N. Main St. Suite 90, but, you’d best enter the building off Second Street across from the Kettering Tower. Their phone is 937-610-9999

Go in and support a local independent restaurant, and tell Haitham that Esrati sent you.

And, yes- I took a shaky picture with the iPhone. Guess I’ll have to go back to get a better shot, shucks.
