Alberto Lombardi announced the opening date of his latest concept, Café des Artistes, a French inspired concept that is being fitted at the Screen Door location in One Arts Plaza. The official opening is Tuesday, November 6th and promises romantic evenings pre and post theater dining, lunch and Sunday brunch.
