    Hopefully this is not a HobNob Tavern spin where they keep changing the name for some reason. I always thought their food was adequate to good, not great, but nice for Camino Real folk. I wonder how business has changed for these stores with Borders closing, they still have the movie theater.

    Why would same owners change the name of their business. Makes no sense at all unless the Mika Corp. is in deep debt or something.

    probably so they wouldn’t have to pay royalties to Mika

    I have a great idea. How about wishing them good luck and all the best? I ascribe to the though that you should not tell others others your problems. 80% don’t care and the other 20% are glad you have them.

    Regardless of the nature of the business, they all require enormous effort and resources.

    Yeah but what would we talk about except saying “pip pip” to every new restaurant? Sometimes you need an SL to liven things up….Ok maybe a notch down from an SL but it keep things interesting! It would be nice to see on this site a better forum for discussions of food topics beside the occasional news blurb to comment on but this is better than just the review format previous at least and I sure don’t know how to make my own website like John does! I think a “best pizza in town” discussion thread would go on for years on end for instance. Maybe a Christmas wish list to the accidental Santa.
