Passing by the corner of Broad & Gramatan, I noticed a construction permit in the window of what used to be a carpet & tile store. Listed as the incoming business was "take-out restaurant". I asked the owner of the liquor store next door if he had any info and he said it was going to be Japanese hibachi. First reaction is "Why?", but maybe it will distinguish itself from other similar places in the area.
Also heard from the chef at the Kefalonia diner that someone has already bought the Samba Na Brasa site, but he didn't have any specifics. If anyone has the scoop, I'd like to know. On the other hand, if its going to be Italian, Asian fusion or some kind of TGI Fridays imitator. maybe I don't wanna know.
Would have liked to see a multi-vendor market in that space (cheese stand, fresh fish, variety of take-outs) but I guess that's just a pipe dream.
