Around The Boro: Diner-type spot to replace F. Martinella?

The short-lived F. Martinella space at 117 Court is replaced by a deli/diner entity.

Some of the commenters have the right idea -- the space seems on first glance like a slam dunk for a sandwich place, but the layout is a little weird, plus in that neighborhood you have to have a lot of ready-to-eats, or be faster on the sandwich counter, to handle the lunchtime traffic from the courts.  FM belonged on another block, basically, and whatever comes in to replace it needs to understand what it's dealing with in terms of the weekday demographic.

Whatever comes in, I'll review it day one, since I can practically see it from my couch right now.  Heh.
