Reader: Latke Love Transports You to Lithuania — Without the Food Poisoning

There was a lot to love at Latke Love, but the Park Hill eatery closed at the end of May 2014.  Now it's getting ready to make a comeback, at a location that has not yet divulged. And when Latke Love does return this summer, it will not only have a larger menu, but "we'll have a bar this time," co-owner Steve Shander promises. But Latke Love in any form will be a welcome sight. Says David:
It'll be like we still live in Lithuania, minus the food poisoning.
Did you frequent the original Latke Love? Where would you like to see it reopen? And what is a latke, anyway?
