Do You Know What This Is (Was)?

Friendly’s has shuttered six more restaurants around the Northeast, including five in New England, company officials said. An empty one in Middletown might wind up being a WaWa. West Haven might be getting real lucky. The once-popular Saw Mill Road location, long since vacant, could be come a Stewart’s All American — as in Stewart’s Root Beer. They've signed a lease to open its first Connecticut restaurant in the former Friendly’s that more recently, and fairly briefly, was the A-1 Diner.

But Frontage Road in East Haven remains empty, and has been a good long time. What would you like to see pop in there? Raising Cane's Chicken Fingers? In-N-Out Burger? A good ol' Jack-In-The-Box? Surely not a WaWa.
