Olympic Pita To Be Turned Into a Sushi Joint?!?
Saw a terrible rumor on Twitter yesterday (at least I hope it’s a rumor!) “Olympic Pita (on 38th btw. 5+6th) in midtown has been taken over by a guy from Buddha Bar and is now Baraca, serving sushi for dinner.” Oh lord, please tell me this isn’t true. I tried calling both the Midtown and Brooklyn locations of Olympic Pita yesterday afternoon and neither answered their phone. Not a good sign. (Checked the calendar… it’s not April Fools Day. Maybe it’s Sukhot or something?!? According to commenter “Susan” it is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, so that would explain why they aren’t answering the phone. But it still doesn’t explain away the twitter message above.) Can anybody substantiate or refute this information? Please post it in the comments or email me.
