Sapodilla on Smith

I liked your food in Fort Greene, assuming you are the same restaurant.

So you move to Smith Street. You open your doors.
Your place has little light, kinda like walking into a cave.
There is NO sign outside with your name.
You have a BAM poster scotch taped to the window. You have your menus scotch taped to the windows. You have a big plastic square " We are open" sign kinda like the ones you can get at a hardware store.

Assuming you are paying a truckload of rent, you best be careful.
Don't suffer from " Rosemary Room syndrome".
Make your restaurant appealing to walk into or you'll be closed by Christmas.

I already know your chow is good but I wouldn't walk into your place on Smith even if the meal was free.
