Forgtmenot Now Serving at 138 Division Street
Forget them not, the newest establishment on the eastern fringe of Division Street (across from the rumored Starbucks). The trio of Abby Sierros, Paul Sierros, and Adam Himebauch opened their, ahem, Forgtmenot concept at 138 Division over the weekend.
Team Sierros-Himebauch, forged from the fumes of the Souvlaki GR truck last year, has taken the formerly antiseptic space of Project 8b and created an uber-casual restaurant atmosphere. Scrapbook-style decor defines the cozy interior, delivering that rustic country home feel. Every tchotchke – from postcards and books, to paintings and skateboards – has a home on one of the many scattered shelves.
The bathroom takes the concept one step further and is a gem unto itself, with meticulously-placed maps, vacation photos, and brochures glued as wallpaper. Relieving yourself will also be the first step in booking the next vacation…
There’s enough space for a half-dozen tables and some window seating facing the street. Eventually we might expect some limited sidewalk dining, but for now, the place is plenty breezy.
Menu items are of the comfort food variety, including burgers, steak sandwiches, feta bruschetta, etc. However, those seeking libations with their meal, will need to wait another week or so – the liquor license is still in the mail. Until then, Forgtmenot is open for lunch and early dinner.
Bottom line is they aren’t trying desperately to be cool, and you can tell. It’s real. What you see is what you get (or WYSIWYG for all the tech nerds out there), and there won’t be any Nickelback on the house mix.
