Cafe 817 Ownership Change

K. Gerstenberger | Apr 1, 200509:09 AM

Some things should never change, but Sandro Rossi has sold 817 and won't be opening another venture (although he's consulting on a project in the far east). Go now if you want to say good bye. The quality of ingredients, simple not stupid Italian dishes, and a commited barrista corp were his hallmarks in my opinion. That and his personality. That and the gallery. That and the high aesthetics of the furnishings and space. I'll be watching the new owners who I hope are commited to continuing rather than revolutionizing.
