Sin Sin Downtown Wilmington? What's the scoop?

Just got back from downtown and saw that Ash's restaurant location on the corner of Front and Princess that use to be Prima, then Bijou, is now something called Sin Sin. There's no menu on the door, it's very dark with small tables and looks like a bar - we saw people, but couldn't really tell if it was open or not. Anyone know what the deal is? Bar? Restaurant? Does Ash still own it?

  1. I think Ashe still owns it. I think the bar is still open, which would account for the people around. I've heard that it's going to be a NY style deli. Not sure. But it's going to be interesting for sure; knowing the owner. Hope he does well. That location has had its share of openings and closings. Maybe this one will last. I hope so.

      The sign looks like they're going for some kind of Asian fare. I'm interested to see what happens there. Frankly, I still miss Prima. The food there was outstanding.

        Yep. Next week, I think. Didn't surprise me much at all. They've had some struggles.

                Donna makes really good coconut cake and a lot of other good pies and cakes. I have tried many of them. She sells desserts to a lot of places in town. Her place is in a new strip mall on Gordon, she is on the left as you come from Mkt. just after Eaton Elementary. She also has breakfast sandwiches and lunch stuff. How did you get onto that topic from Sin Sin? :)

                  I;m sorry to hear about Martino's. Hope it is just a rumor.

      2. Heard that Sin Sin is now open and that they're serving mostly bar food. Wings and such.
