    haven't skimmed this thread thoroughly, but does anyone know what's up with "shops on park" on park ave? i actually was able to walk thru it today since it was opened(by accident?). looks VERY nice with koi ponds(with koi in them already) and a faux banyan tree. . .i'm hoping they get some nice restaurants and retail in there to bring some life to the rest of park ave. hopefully it doesn't bomb, though it seems like they finished up gutting the whole place and renovating it quickly for new tenants. i got some phone pics

    it's not always necessarily about purchasing an "asset," some people genuinely like the places, and would like to call them home at the right price. if you can get in there sub/lower 200's. . .i think you've done halfway decent. as far as the "asset" side of things, if you can carry the place for 4-5 years, i doubt it'll be worth LESS than what you paid for it.

    try shin, a lot of my "sushi head" friends not it's quite a bit more authentic than your run of the mill sushi bar

    just walk right in between the 2 towers fronting orange avenue. . .before you hit the thru-street under the building, you'll see bento on your left side

    went there saturday night/sunday morning at 3am when they were running a trial of a 4am closing time. . .and you literally couldn't move inside, that's how packed it was on a daily basis i'd say lunch is a hit there, and the 630-9pm dinner crowd, with things tapering off outside those hours. i have no doubt with those prices that that place isn't gonna be much of a sleeper for long if it still is one.

    not at the MW location. . .but i ate there YEARS ago when it was at pointe orlando i really can't tell you if i liked it or not, though that probably means it was a less than memorable experience. i do remember it wasn't particularly cheap though.

    yea, the spot where brick&fire is should be like a Morton's or similar. . . high end steak house, something like that would be suited nicely for that location i think gino's is right up the street and a hundred times better, faster and cheaper.
