Three New Retailers to Join Smoky Hollow District

Kane Realty Corporation, along with Williams Realty & Building Company and Lionstone Investments, are excited to announce three tenants that will soon be a part of the Smoky Hollow community – Alaksha’s Indian Bistro, Morelia Gourmet Paletas, and Noire The Nail Bar.

“We are thrilled to welcome these three businesses to Smoky Hollow,” said Stacey Buescher, Managing Director of Operations of Kane Realty Corporation. “From fitness studios and beauty services to beverage partners and dynamic dining, it is important that our retail tenant mix is well-rounded, and patrons of Smoky Hollow are offered a unique experience for every part of their day.”

Alaksha Surti is the executive chef and owner of Curry in a Hurry, the popular Indian food truck which has been featured on the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. She also has two quick-service restaurants inside the Morgan Street Food Hall in downtown Raleigh and the Old North State Food Hall in Selma. Now, Surti is very excited to expand her business to a full-service restaurant in Smoky Hollow. “When guests walk through my doors at Alaksha’s Indian Bistro, I want them to have a culinary experience with all their senses. It’s going to be a journey like no other – a true gateway to India,” said Surti.

Morelia Gourmet Paletas offers handcrafted gourmet popsicles and gourmet ice cream bars (aka paletas) made in small batches with fresh, high-quality, natural ingredients. The concept is named after Morelia, the capital city of the State of Michoacán in Mexico, where it is believed the first handcrafted fresh popsicles, paletas, originated. The first location opened in Coral Gables, Miami in 2016 by two longtime friends with a mission to bring the concept to the U.S. The company now has 10 locations nationwide in North Carolina, Florida and Texas.

Noire The Nail Bar is a local full-service nail salon with one other Raleigh location. The luxurious, modern inspired salon offers signature spa pedicure and manicure treatments, stunning nail designs, top brand name products, waxing services, and a warm, welcoming space.
