Shop Talk

MIDTOWN GETS EYES ... More than 600 eyeglass frames are on display at Midtown's newest shop, Uber Eyes, at 2750 Middlefield Road. The optical boutique opened last week in a renovation that shouts out sophistication, modernism and simplicity. Owned by veteran optometrist Dr. Joanne Hu, the space features frames from Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and France. Prices start in the $300 range and can exceed $800. "We carry frames that are pretty exclusive. Many are one-of-a-kind pieces and are handmade," Hu said. The 1,900-square-foot space, which also has a flat-screen TV and a children's section, is the former home of Best Video, and before that Harmony Bakery. "Business has been pretty good so far. We get a lot of walk-ins," Hu said. A grand opening, which includes a ceremonial ribbon-cutting, is scheduled Dec. 8.
