This Petra, That Petra

So, I got an email following the post on Petra Cafe from someone who asked to be identified as Raoul (for the record, his name is Richard).

Just read the article about Petra in Midtown—I am guessing this is the Petra that is on Poplar at Kirby? What relation does it have to the Midtown restaurant—Petra’s—that was on Madison where Fuel is now? I always thought it was odd that we would have two same named but totally unrelated restaurants in Memphis, and I believe the Midtown was there before the one at Kirby, so now the Midtown Petra is defunct and rolled into the Kwik Check on Madison, and the Germantown entity has moved in here—is that the case? If someone might answer that question—might help avoid some confusion, otherwise, we might think oh, they have reopened?

The short answer is yes. The long answer is also yes. Let's break it down ...

I am guessing this is the Petra that is on Poplar at Kirby? Yes. The Midtown restaurant is the fourth location. There are two in Germantown and one in Cordova.

What relation does it have to the Midtown restaurant—Petra’s—that was on Madison where Fuel is now? None. But you've answered your own question below.

I always thought it was odd that we would have two same named but totally unrelated restaurants in Memphis. It could be confusing but there are worse problems than having two great Mediterranean places with the same name. (And Kwik Check continues to be a favorite.)

And I believe the Midtown was there before the one at Kirby, so now the Midtown Petra is defunct and rolled into the Kwik Check on Madison, and the Germantown entity has moved in here—is that the case? Yes.

If someone might answer that question—might help avoid some confusion, otherwise, we might think oh, they have reopened? Okay.
