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.
