Last modified March 7, 2016 at 11:02 pm

​Burgers and upstairs “speakeasy” are the new face of 67 Clinton Street. Tony Powe’s double-shot nightspot on Clinton Street successfully sold to new operators last summer. Both the long-running fish-themed restaurant Barramundi and its 2nd Floor on Clinton sibling closed last July. The businesses were acquired by first-timers Tim Gashi (Rocky Slims) and Valentino Gjaka (Arte), […]

When Barramundi temporarily closed in February 2014 for a tune-up, the writing was on the wall. Something was wrong with the eleven-year-old establishment that needed to change.

67 Clinton Street is on the Market for $7M; Barramundi Safe for Now

Posted December 4, 2014 at 9:22 am

It’s probably safe to say that Clinton Street is currently experiencing something of a micro-level real estate bubble.

That hermaphroditic fish in the waters of Clinton Street is ready to swim again. Tony Powe’s Barramundi, down for the count since the end of February, returned to form last night. That two-month stint for interior metamorphosis yielded a different decor. Or as Powe comically notes, “not quite a sex change, but close.” Barramundi 2.0 […]

But much like its namesake (hermaphroditic) fish, the restaurant is again slated for more change. Barramundi as we know it will end its illustrious run at the end of February. […]
