Current Status:  Chef Michael Rafridi had a hit on his hands with Albi when COVID took the wind out of the sails (sales?) of the restaurant industry.  Albi is now gearing back up to serve its open-flame, cooking from the Levant.  We did not get to try it before the shutdown, but based on Rafridi’s prior work and our take-out experience we’re confident that you will probably be happy.  The dining room and patio is open for sit-down service, reservations here.  They were doing limited take-out of family dinners, but have suspended while they focus on reopening in person.  They are open Wednesday through Sunday.  Their daytime café, called Yellow, is open 8 am to 2 pm.
