I walked into that new restaurant, Heimish. I don't get it. It looks like the takeout counter at GG or Seasons. Am I missing something?

Have you ever sat down to eat at GG or Seasons? Have you gone out to GG or Seasons with friends? Also IMHO the food is less commercial than GG deli counter.

No. I never felt the urge to sit down for takeout food.
I was turned off by the fact the food was all sitting in a counter display. When I go to a restaurant I want everything to be fresh.

did they sell those by weight? I guess people can have less yogurt or toppings if needed.
 
The places that I've tasted haven't been good. Real ice cream is much, much better.

Closed closed? for good?

Techically, a sign on the door says that they are closed for renovations, although I think that we all know what that means.
