Pomodoro Name Dispute (Moved from Boston board)

It was only a matter of time before this happened.....
Ya know, I gottah say, whether they meant to or not (and they couldn't have done that hard a search), they are kindof running on Pomodoro's (orig) coat tails... I could see it being a headache if they had payment problems w/suppliers, too...
The Needham establishment will be renaming its business just as soon as this gets to a judge. If you remember, "The Village Fish", was ordered to change its name from "The Village Catch", as it was to close to, "The Daily Catch". This is very serious stuff for a business, and could cause a lot of headaches. First come, first served. I'm no lawyer, or even an expert, but I've been in business for 40 years.
Jfood cannot wait for the Commercial by a Lawyer...

Where I live there used to be an Indian restaurant and sweet centre called the Sanam. The story goes that it was run by two members of a family who had a dispute, so one left the business. He then opened a restaurant and sweet centre a few doors down the road and he called it the Sanam.
No-one arranges to meet outside the Sanam!
Both sell good sweets (all of which are incredibly calorie laden).
Regardless of name issues, curious if anyone has eaten here yet and what the feedback is? Prices? Menu?
If Starbucks can trademark the word 'Venti', then surely it isn't too far a stretch for this restaurant.
