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 features a selection of craft beers, local liquors, and cocktails. They’ve also expanded the simple red-or-white wine offering to a more robust “list.”

We are also told that the reboot boasts a new management team.

The first incarnation of Barramundi was actually at 145-147 Ludlow alongside Collective Unconscious. It closed in 2004, and the buildings were demolished for a vacant lot. That parcel is being developed as we speak, though.

Barramundi moved to 67 Clinton Street in 2005. Its hours are Tuesday through Saturday, 6pm-2am.
