Cafe on Clinton

Does anyone know what is going on with Cafe on Clinton? I walked by last night around 8:30 and it was closed. Is it closed for good?

  1. My sources tell me that Barry sold the business to the chef of a nearby long-standing bistro.

    1. Walked by Cafe on Clinton this evening, and there's a new sign in the window. Photo upload is disabled, so here's the text:

      "Dear neighbors and customers, Our doors are currently shut, but it [sic] won't be for long! We're making some updates and getting things ready to reopen within the month. After 18 years of running Cafe on Clinton we're saying goodbye to owner Barry Brockway, who is moving on to different projects. Chef Charlie Statelman, formerly of Patois on Smith Street, will be taking over in the kitchen. We look forward to welcoming you back with a delicious menu and some familiar faces! Chef Charlie Statelman and the Staff of Cafe on Clinton"

      Here's hoping the new menu is much like the old (and that they didn't lose their touch with the burgers and french toast in the transition).
