After a couple of hard years, a local man decided to push on and follow his dream of opening up a new restaurant in the Gem City.
Laramie resident Paul Harper will be opening up Paul Paul’s House of Foods on Sept. 15 at 207 S. Third St. Harper said the restaurant will start off primarily serving Chinese food. But the menu will continue to expand as time goes on, he said. For example, Harper said he will be doing what he calls Soul Food Sundays down the road, where he will serve food his grandmother taught him to cook. The restaurant’s name comes from a childhood nickname, Harper said.
