Yesterday I noticed a new store on Atlantic, on the same block as old favorites Atlantic fruit & veg (best price & quality for miles around), Damascus bakery, & Sahadi's. Well actually the store's been around for a month or so, but I guess it was the outdoor furniture displayed on the sidewalk (bistro tables - $255 - $365) that made me notice it this time. Tasteful displays inside & out - mostly home goods by the looks of things. But the name, the name! How could the poor brothers ever have imagined their twenty-first century fate?
