Finally, A Spanish/French/Greek/Turkish/Lebanese/Moroccan Place

Since I only live a block away, I am always rooting for something interesting to occupy the quaint yet troubled space at 12th and Denny. In my four-year tenure in the area, I’ve seen a coffee shop, a pizza place, a pizza/burrito place, and a burrito place. I do like the idea that there will be booze, and they are sprucing up this very tiny space inside/out. And although the only word associated with an eating/drinking establishment that makes me cringe more than fusion is gastropub, I’d like to see this tiny little space succeed. A mildly indifferent Google search could find no further information about this place or its owner; does anyone have any further information about Esmeralda?

    I like the idea of "Happy Day" on Tuesday, but nothing else on this sign makes me want to eat there :( I would be psyched if they’d picked, say, Lebanese cuisine and did that one cuisine really well/offered it for affordable prices, a la "Emily’s Lebanese Delicatessen" in St. Paul, MN (one of my favorites, despite the inexplicable name and slightly watery tabouleh).

    I agree; pick one thing and do it well.
