Forgtmenot Family Remodels and Reopens Sherman’s on Division Street

Posted on: February 22nd, 2019 at 5:03 am by

For the last several months, Sherman’s on Division Street had favored its popular catering over serving the in-store crowd. But all that recently changed.

Three months of interior remodeling resulted in a reboot that just launched last night.

You’ll recall that the crew behind Forgtmenot opened Sherman’s – named for the longtime shoe store it replaced – back in 2017. Its menu was fast-casual Greek, serving souvlaki. Now equipped with a larger dining room, owner Paul Sierros is filling out the menu with items from its sister across the street with the hope of accommodating more customers.

Just think of it as a more casual version of Kiki’s, but on steroids. Even the outside of the restaurant shares a resemblance to its other Division Street siblings.

Sierros and his wife, Abby, started it all in 2011 with Souvlaki GR on Stanton Street (which they later sold); then in 2012 with Forgtmenot, which has become a well-respected neighborhood establishment among locals; Kiki’s followed in 2015; then Monroe on its namesake street two years later.
