I can't wait for a French bistro Maxim's 22 to open on the ground floor of the former Pomeroy building near Centre Square on Northampton Street in Easton. Maxim's 22 is brought to you by some familiar faces in the downtown restaurant scene: the principals are Josh and Terry Palmer, two of the owners of Sette Luna at 219 Ferry St. Patch and Express-Times got the story last month when the liquor license was transferred. So, is that enough to tip off Retail Watch? ;)
