Forgtmenot Family Launches ‘Sherman’s’ Souvlaki Joint on Division Street

Posted on: August 14th, 2017 at 5:11 am by

Five months after launching Monroe beneath the bridge, the Forgtmenot family is back with its newest endeavor. Back to Division Street.

Sherman Shoes is now reborn as Sherman’s, a fast-casual Greek spot just a stone’s throw from its popular Kiki’s restaurant. It soft-opened yesterday afternoon.

Sherman’s is the second Greek establishment for Division Street that will offer souvlaki, gyro, rotisserie, and Kiki’s take-away. (A Greek spot with a Jewish name – this is the Lower East Side, after all.) The affordable snack shop will seat thirty-five in a footprint dominated by kitchen equipment; alcohol won’t be served, but there is a large selection of imported sodas and drinks. The look and feel essentially mirrors its sister across the street with similar design elements.

If this tack sounds a bit familiar, it should. After all, proprietor Pavlos Sierros and his wife Abby founded the Souvlaki GR truck back in 2010. That endeavor was successful enough to spawn a standalone restaurant on Stanton Street from which they later divested. (It operates under different ownership today.)

Menu is below:

With the addition of Sherman’s, and the 1 Pike coffee-wine bar, Division Street is now a crowded playing field of restaurants. As it stands, there are now five established eateries, three of which are operated by the Forgtmenot family.

Former Red Square Retail Demolished for New Development
