Abby Sierros to Open ForgetMeNot at 138 Division Street

Posted on: January 9th, 2012 at 6:41 am by

Truck-to-store Greece spot Souvlaki GR sustained a proverbial flat tire last month with the departure of founding husband-wife partnership Pavlos and Abby Sierros. In a statement to Grub Street, the duo collectively cited a “difference in business philosophy” as the ultimate reason for the split, and mentioned that they already signed a lease for a new Lower East Side eatery at an undisclosed location. It would serve a menu of cuisines that “make us happy,” those that “we’ve grown up with.” Said location remained a mystery until this weekend.

Now it appears team Sierros has secured 138 Division Street, previously home to Project 8b, to jumpstart their new concept – ForgetMeNot (aka Plan A Group, LLC). Liquor license application materials submitted to Community Board 3 reveal that this “Mediterranean grill” will cater to roughly thirty diners and boast a twenty-foot rectangular bar.

ForgetMeNot will argue for on-premise liquor privileges at tonight’s meeting, yet only desires to stay open until 1 am daily. At least for now.

Judging by the love effectively bestowed upon Souvlaki GR at Stanton Street, expect some unique interior remodeling.
