Noticed the sign on the windows of the vacant store front across from Bistro 41. The one in Naples is very popular with tourists or at least it was, for its location near the Ritz Beach and entertaining aspects for little ones. There is one in Sarasota as well. It's a Japanese steakhouse. Might do well, as the Tokyo something nearby is dreadful and it is a fun place for older kids birthdays. I hope the year they are taking for buildout includes some great ventilation. The one whose name escapes leaves ones clothes smelling of stale oil.
The French Roast has come up with a new name but lets us know via a large sign that it is the same owners and menu. Wonder if that will help it. Now Saigon Paris. LMF
