  1. I’m excited to see it reopen but apparently with the new digs come higher prices-which is sad. I hate to see much anticipated restaurants open and then close due to overly expensive ($9 Tabouleh appetizer?) menu items. Ill support her, but i think many others won’t–save for happy hour.

    Also it does seem like an odd spot for a restaurant–it appears to be in the building most often intended for communal/clubhouse use in such a development. I am curious why it landed with its exhaust system there instead of the gym across from Martin’s.

  2. Not necessarily overpriced if the food is good enough. I’m looking forward to checking it out. Looks like a nice cozy space, but it does seem like they’d get a lot more walk-by traffic if they were in one of those spaces out on 14th. I guess they’re figuring their clientelle are more likely to come via word of mouth anyway.

  3. Sorry about that. I have chrome & the photos were resolving fine – but was not working in Firefox & IE.

  4. There’d probably be more visibility and foot traffic on 14th, but the free standing building is much cuter, and it allows for outdoor seating. If the restaurant is as good as I’m hoping, I don’t think anyone in the neighborhood will have a hard time finding it.

    I agree that the $7 olives and $9 tabouleh seem a little steep, for starters like those, I’d rather see half-sized portions at half the price, but it’s hard to judge without giving it a try first. Hopefully I’ll get to do that this week.

  5. At the first design review meeting for this building, the developers claimed that Union had most of the foot traffic, and hence the building should be oriented that way, rather than toward 14th. I commented that their observation was clearly not right, that the foot traffic was actually mostly on 14th, etc, but they stuck with it facing Union.
