Since Carrabba's in Egg Harbor Township closed in February 2017, that building on the Black Horse Pike at Harbor Square (formerly the Shore Mall) has sat vacant -- but that will soon be changing.

Within the past few days, the owners of The Nizam's Indian Cuisine restaurant just off of the old Cardiff Circle in EHT have announced that they will be moving over to the former Carrabba's building, which will greatly expand their space. They say they hope to be open sometime in January 2019.

Meanwhile, their current location will not sit empty for long. Preliminary plans say the current Nizam's restaurant will be turned into a Mediterranean / falafel eatery. The date for that transformation has not been announced.

Longtime drivers on the Black Horse Pike have been passing The Nizam's for over a decade now as that restaurant opened in 2008. Before that, 6666 Black Horse Pike was known as The 1400 Bar.
