Mehek Fine Indian Dining is closed. Evidently, the two couples who owned the restaurant lived in New Jersey. The distance became a problem and there was talk of inner squabbles, according the owner of the building at 811 S. Broadway in Fells Point.
We’re always sorry to see a place shut down, but it looks like another one is already in the works. Thanks to B-mag’s intrepid ad rep Sally Rich, I’m on the case.
Here’s what I’ve uncovered so far. There’s a liquor license hearing today at 3 p.m. The applicants, Yuki Emori and John Morrison, represent The Queen LLC, which is trading as Sam’s Kid. Besides the liquor license, the duo is also requesting outdoor table service for the restaurant, which is in a primo spot near Thames Street, in the same block as Jimmy’s Diner.
I was also able to snag Peter, the building’s owner, as I walked by this afternoon. He said the restaurant will be Asian and that the owners have two Asian restaurants in D.C. He’s passing my business card along to the new owners. I hope they call.
In the meantime, if you hear anything, let me know.
