We just received this email from FiPS reader Ashley: "They have begun construction where Fatoosh used to be on 5th Avenue. Saw the guys leaving today and asked about what will be in the space, and they told me it was a Thai restaurant. Fingers crossed for good cookin'."
I know we're all sad that Fatoosh is gone, and this new place might be like the ribbon-clad puppy that is brought home to replace your old dog that was sent to "live on the farm," but who knows -- maybe you'll grow to like it! Maybe the Thai joint will run at your heels on the way to baseball practice and swim in Old Miller's Pond with you. Maybe the Thai joint will become the best friend you thought you'd never have.
