El Asmar rises from the ashes, sort of.

A new little store has appeared on Atlantic Ave. in Brooklyn Heights, between Court and Clinton, in the same location as the former, much-beloved El Asmar. I went in last night when I saw that it was finally open for business, and it seems to be operated by the same very nice people, featuring the same foodstuffs. I didn't spot the older, mustachioed man and his wife, who did the delicious cooking in the back, but the prepared foods in the case looked like her stuff. I bought a stuffed eggplant but haven't eaten it yet. If it's the same, I will be so happy. Open on Sunday nights, too.
