Black Crescent on Clinton Street is out of commission for the duration, thanks to an alleged electrical fire in its basement over the holiday weekend. The fire reportedly sparked Friday evening shortly before midnight, and quickly sidelined service. Firefighters extinguished the flames, but busted through all the windows to do so. It’ll probably be awhile, so expect those announcements of “closed for renovations.” There is no update via any of the social media accounts or the house line. Black Crescent opened at 76 Clinton in exactly a year ago, replacing the decades-old Alias Restaurant. It’s unclear if and when the eatery reopens.
