Maybe a sign of a re-opening?
Let's hope. But maybe, this time, they could get their liquor license. Here's the Chronicle's restaurant review from December 2007:
"With its pastel-colored interior, track lighting and ample space offered between tables, Marmara has a romantic ambience and is as good a “date restaurant” as any you will find a few miles west in Manhattan with prices that are far more reasonable. Marmara has not obtained its liquor license yet, but patrons are allowed to bring their own bottle of wine if they desire."
