Forgtmenot Family Launches ‘Sherman’s’ Souvlaki Joint on Division Street

Posted on: August 14th, 2017 at 5:11 am by

Five months after launching Monroe beneath the bridge, the Forgtmenot family is back with its newest endeavor. Back to Division Street.

Sherman Shoes is now reborn as Sherman’s, a fast-casual Greek spot just a stone’s throw from its popular Kiki’s restaurant. It soft-opened yesterday afternoon.

Sherman’s is the second Greek establishment for Division Street that will offer souvlaki, gyro, rotisserie, and Kiki’s take-away. (A Greek spot with a Jewish name – this is the Lower East Side, after all.) The affordable snack shop will seat thirty-five in a footprint dominated by kitchen equipment; alcohol won’t be served, but there is a large selection of imported sodas and drinks. The look and feel essentially mirrors its sister across the street with similar design elements.

If this tack sounds a bit familiar, it should. After all, proprietor Pavlos Sierros and his wife Abby founded the Souvlaki GR truck back in 2010. That endeavor was successful enough to spawn a standalone restaurant on Stanton Street from which they later divested. (It operates under different ownership today.)

Menu is below:

With the addition of Sherman’s, and the 1 Pike coffee-wine bar, Division Street is now a crowded playing field of restaurants. As it stands, there are now five established eateries, three of which are operated by the Forgtmenot family.
