Sami's LMA being forced to move!

I just grabbed lunch at Sami's Longwood Medical Area truck and saw a sign that said they're being forced to close on May 11 - apparently whoever owns their little corner wants the space back. It's a damn shame because they've been in the area forever - my Dad talks about how often he'd get 3 a.m. dinners there after his bar would close for the night, and that was more than 30 years ago!

They have a petition up at ipetitions - http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/sa... - and one at the cart as well. I think the idea is more to bring attention to the move and to seek help finding a new site than to try to convince the current owners to let them stay on; but I know they have some fans here who might want to sign anyway (I did).

This is such a shame. LMA really hurts for good food - there was just recently a discussion about this (http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8450...) - and I'm heaps sorry to see one of the stalwarts being forced out.
