ramblin'

Going to Corti Bros is very financially dangerous for me.  I should have some sort of electric shock collar that goes off when I try to enter the door.  That place does such a bangin' business.  The deli was MOBBED.  Did you read the profile of Corti in the latest Sactown?  You should, it's excellent.  Have you ever seen pictures of young Corti? I had not.

Who hasn't dreamed of opening a restaurant in this space?  I know I have, and I'm happy something is opening there.  However, a message to Sacramento business owners:  MAKE UP YOUR OWN THING.  Do not just copy someone else's idea!!  We already have a copy of the famous Korean taco thing, is called Kogi, which is just one "l" away from a lawsuit by the original truck, I'm sure.  Did her original restaurant, Yunece 61 close down?  That was a Korean/BBQ place that I reviewed years back.  It was OK.

The space by Bows that housed Sweetwater is now available too. A Magpie Annex would be nice!

From Fins to Sweetwater to where? I fear what might move in there if they keep the same trajectory established those two ill-fated restaurants.

Mexican + Korean within one 300 sq. ft. place? Sounds like a disaster, but I kid you not...one of the best places to eat in Memphis combines Korean with Cajun and solid deli fare.

I love that little building. I was thinking a doughnut shop or florist would be cool.

I don't count the 19th & S building as one of those supposedly cursed locations. Both Fin's & Sweetwater were just uninspired businesses.

One thing downtown could use is a good bakery.

MH said a new bakery just opened in East Sac. However, the owners used to own a La Bou, which is a bad sign.

I dunno, I'm just glad Korean anything is coming. Also glad it's going to be open late.

As for the Sweetwater spot, somebody should open a really cool used music gear store and call it Profound Sound.

You know what would be great in that spot? A world-class pharmacy.

get petrovich on the phone! He may be planning to shoehorn on in across the street when the yogurt shop and/or generic mexican place goes under.

Skipper is a crispy fellow indeed. The Earl was rightfully famous for their righteous brown gunk. I also had an insane crush on the hot chick with the cursive neck ink. The coors was always cold and the price was always cheap.

I think that's a lousy spot for a restaurant, but Bill the Locksmith will keep them in business.

Oh yeah, Les Baux was not great. It looks good on the surface, but the "pain au levain" was torally bullshit.
