Missing Muma

Many innovative restaurants and cafes have opened in Melrose Village in recent years.  Sadly, not all of them make it.  The restaurant business is a very tough one.

To our list of now-defunct places we must add Muma, a cheery and healthful falafel stand that was on Melrose Avenue (between Poinsettia and Alta Vista) for about two years.  One of our correspondents recently took these photos, showing that Muma is closed, and the storefront is for lease.

This particular location seems to be turning in to a “doomed space,” having seen several food concepts come and go over the years.  Hopefully, the next one will be able to stick it out.

    They were just a knock-off of Maoz in New York. They were even given a cease and desist order shortly after they opened for using the same artwork, colors, everything! That is why they had to start serving meat and take “vegetarian” off their sign.

    Vegetarian wasn’t profitable so they tried serving meat. I don’t believe it was Maoz, because they could have more cheaply changed the design.

    I think Taeem (7422 Melrose @ Martel, (323) 944-0013) tastes better and it has the middle-eastern atmosphere.

    Oh and to the officer who made a quick u-turn a couple of weeks ago thinking some guy was painting graffiti on a store—nah, it was just me. I couldn’t believe when I saw a for-lease sign so used my hands to cover the light so I can see better inside. Thanks for watching us!
