  1. I believe it about Frenchette having a line of people prior to opening. (I don’t recall this in the neighborhood since Nobu moved) My husband and I tried to go early recently and were dumbfounded by the line prior to opening. By the time everyone snaked inside; every seat at the ample sized bar was taken.
    I had the impression that almost all of the people were out-of-towners.
