“I’m curious how a restaurant like this can become so “cold” when most places around it are packed?”

“Dear PoPville,

How come some restaurants become “hot” and other seemed doomed to fail? Specifically, my partner and I went to Sala Thai (aka “Pantry”) in Petworth tonight. The decor has been considerably improved, and the food was tasty. And, other than us, there wasn’t a soul in the place. Now, I won’t get into a debate about the best Thai food in the city, but our meal was at least as good as other places that are generally packed (eg. Beau Thai). So maybe this is partly a plea for neighbors to visit Sala Thai so we don’t lose the one restaurant on that block. But more generally, I’m curious how a restaurant like this can become so “cold” when most places around it are packed…?”
