Residents of Baker and West Washington Park no longer have an easy place to visit for all their refractometer and microscope needs, not since the Science Company moved to West Hampden Avenue, but at least the building at the corner of First Avenue and Lincoln Street will soon be put to use again — and not just as a graffiti magnet. A liquor-license hearing notice recently went up announcing the intent of Platform T to open in the space.
There's another Platform T, a tea bar with a small breakfast and lunch menu, opening in Glendale's City Set development; the Lincoln Street location appears to be under the same ownership group. We'll keep you posted as more details become available. In the meantime here's a link to the Platform T website.
