It looks like the doubters, including me, were wrong--The Melt is back open for business! I'm not sure how they pulled it off, but the long closure is over and there is a "new menu". I'm surprised, but wish them luck. The Avenue is looking pretty good and pretty busy these days which doesn't surprise me.
I haven't tried I Prive yet, but I did dine at Rasa (replacing Roti after a year and a half) and it was good.
