La Villa

La Villa, my favorite falafel stand run by Brazilians, has been sold.

3/10/07 UPDATE
This is a cam-phone picture of the note on the door.

to save you the squinting:


La Villa Restaraunt has been sold. Thank you to all our customers who have been suporting us all these years. We will miss you very much. Thank you again.


Meire, Zayde, and Yasmine Awsem.

I speak fo my neighbors, my roomates and many others when I say they will be missed. I am extremely sad to see them go. They were fresh Pita away from being the best east side Lebanese food by leaps and bounds. The Brazilian flavor just made it all the better.


Looking to the future, this was posted on the window as well:

According to public records obtainable at 12:20 am on a weekend, Purgatory LLC was formed on Januray 23th, 2007, and has Stephen Blackman as it’s registered agent. Mr. Blackman is a well known business lawyer in zee food biz, as I understand. Looks like a full license application, so we’ll all be waiting with bells on as close-in Morrison starts liquoring up in preparation for the Central Lanes development to complete.
