I enjoyed Wish but never tried Black Skirt, now it's reopening as Wish again on May 1st. Failed venture?

    I'm curious where you heard that they are reconverting back to Wish? The website just says that Black Skirt is closing and moving to a new location, but nothing about Wish.

      I walked by and saw a sign. Then called the number listed for BS (ha!) and a recording says Wish will open May 1st.

      I loved Wish and spent many an evening on their patio, and many a Sunday have brunch. Black Skirt is a terrible name for a space that is airy and light.

        I agree! I had a terrible dinner there about a year ago and never really understood why such s simple place could be so bad after Wish was pretty good for a few years. Glad to have the original Wish back in the hood. Only hope the food and service could match what was once there with the first incarnation of Wish!
