    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, or so we've heard.  And Anthony Martignetti has cited Indochine and Le Colonial as muses for his bottle bar Southside, but he hasn't mentioned Bungalow 8. Curious because the two places seem to have so much in common with respect to design (much like our website).  It's as if Amy Sacco had her hand in it.  For kicks let's take a quick look at the two places and see what they have or don't have in common.
