THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Cafe Sbisa Restaurant Review

: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED In the early 1980s, table-hopping at this smartly turned-out bistro, couched in a former ship's chandlery (circa 1820), was the favorite sport of the trendy art-gallery crowd. Most moved on long ago to livelier territory, leaving the exposed brick walls and wraparound mezzanine to a few diehards and an army of upscale out-of-towners. We recommend the big, fresh fried shrimp, and depending on who's shaking the skillets on a given night, the kitchen may manage an inspired bouillabaisse or grilled salmon. You may have to contend with a busload of tourists to get served, though.
