Looks like we got our answer in Truva Cafe & Grill. The sign appeared on Friday. According to the awning, they’ll be serving the amorphous “Mediterranean food,” which should give nearby Shawarmania some competition. They do not have really much of an online presence apart from a generic Facebook page. As an aside on the Frankie’s Pizza renovation, I saw people coming out with bags and bags of stuff the other night, so that process is on its way. We’ll be curious to see what Truva has to offer the neighborhood. Hopefully there will be some real vegetarian options among the halal kebabs, and that the overall quality of the food will be good.

It’s very nice inside, and the sign will be back up soon. It’s not the prettiest sign, but good restaurants spend more $$ on quality food instead, so I’m optimistic. Just look at the Kyclades sign. Nothing special. Reply megc November 13th, 2014 Thanks for the update on the interior, Tess! Is it a sit down/stay awhile place or more casual? You also make a good point about spending money on the signage vs. food. I look forward to trying some tasty food there. Reply Tess March 18th, 2015 Re Meg: It’s a mixture of both for the atmosphere. And I’m seeing that they finally opened yesterday. Was packed last night. Gotta check it out! Reply Silvio November 10th, 2014 The sign has since come DOWN. Any idea why? It would actually look 1000x better if they just restored the original brickwork that the Teddy’s/Grocery signs had been covering all these years. Reply Mari November 12th, 2014 Noticed that this morning – very strange! But I agree, the new facade was hideous. Would love it if they kept the brick. Reply Stacey October 31st, 2014 I’m excited!!!! Will be passing it every day when I get off the train. Anticipate getting a lot of takeout. Reply Tom Waits October 27th, 2014 Yuck!!
