If zoning laws and neighborhood approval were not an issue, what does that neighborhood need. I live there and its either a 20 minute walk, wait for a infrequent bus or drive. It is densely populated enough to support a restaurant and or bar. Not even a cafe between Sarah's and the hotel Starbucks. I don't personally mind the area being empty of options, in reality Harvard,Porter, Davis and Fresh Pond are all really close but I would love a Highland Kitchen type place. Fine for regulars at the bar and for date night as well. I guess TW adding a bar and bar menu would be the real pipe dream.
