The next restaurant at 727 Elmwood Ave. will be called Forty Thieves.
Restaurateur Tommy Cowan, partner in Midtown Kitchen, MTK Prime and other local spots, posted a Forty Thieves logo to his Facebook page. "Coming soon," he wrote.
The banner is also flying at 727 Elmwood Ave. Briefly operated as 727 Elmwood, the restaurant was formerly Blue Monk, and before that Merlin's. The building has been an Elmwood Village nightspot for decades.
