Cafe des Artists May Be Resurrected

Like Gourmet, Cafe des Artistes may have a shot at a new life: According to Crain's, numerous investors and restaurateurs have expressed interest in re-opening the restaurant, which closed in August after a 92-year run. The restaurant's future is complicated by the union representing its workers, which may have rights to retain its contract with the future owners. Nothing will be decided until the restaurant's bankruptcy proceedings are completed, but at least one thing is no longer in doubt: Should the new owners not want the restaurant's famous Howard Chandler Christy murals, they can be preserved. It turns out they were painted on canvas, rather than the walls themselves.
