Antibes Bistro is Donezo, Seized by Marshals After 8 Years on Suffolk Street
It’s the end of the road for local favorite Antibes Bistro on Suffolk Street.
The City Marshal seized the French, two-store restaurant last month. Its notice is pasted to the front door inside the vestibule. This caps a tumultuous end-of-year for the joint.
Back in October, Antibes shuttered randomly several times without warning to patrons … or bands who had scheduled nightly gigs. Co-owner Eyal Tov told us at the time that Antibes was still functioning. “We had issues with maintenance while I was sick and couldn’t handle the situation,” he noted. Nevertheless, the restaurant has ended its respectable run.
Antibes Bistro was founded in 2008, and built a steady local following. David Shemesh and Eyal Tov then expanded into the adjacent space at this address a few years later. The partners were also proprietors of Schapiro’s, and the latter helmed the Falafel Shop around the corner. Both of these establishments shuttered this past August.
