- on the corner of 5th Ave and 6th Street (across from ChipShop), a sign that said "Coming Soon... Skyy Thai." I'm envisioning an over-designed menu, a sculpture that involves water, a DJ, and ridiculously cheap food, and a wacky bathroom. Stop me if you've heard this one before. I could be totally wrong though... I hope they succeed.
- 5th Ave btw. 8th & 9th Streets - "Edessa Cafe & Lounge". Through the window, I spotted white lacquer box stools with red leather tops.
Center Slope joins the fray!
On a side note -- the merguez sandwich they offer for lunch at Belleville is wonderful.
