ANSONIA — Crave, which has been a staple of the restaurant scene in Ansonia for a lot more than a ten years, is no more.

Owner Libby Meissner took a gamble and relaunched her cafe, now regarded as Uptown Bar and Eatery, dispensing with every thing that built Crave a well-preferred hot place on the neighborhood food items scene. Nachos are out, but there will be rooster tikka masala in addition to other products that comprise the new menu, described by Meissner as new American foods.

On Friday, Uptown was a hit with shoppers who attended an invite-only smooth launch Friday. The restaurant will open up to the common community Monday.
