Still Krazy After All These Years

Posted: Updated:

It's part pop art gallery, part bar and part international fusion restaurant.

Krazy Fish
is a Plaza Midwood favorite that is hard to categorize.

The neighborhood spot is currently in a battle to save itself. Walgreens wants to buy the land the restaurant sits on, but the landowner has given the restaurant the option to buy the land and save itself. But, that means coming up with $70,000 for a down payment by next year. 

Krazy Fish has turned to an unusual method to raise the money, seeking contributions from a crowd sourcing fundraiser site.

Restaurant writer Sarah Crosland recently visited Krazy Fish to see what the place is up to these days.

When you first walk in, you are surrounded by unusual artwork hanging from every corner of the place.

"Everything you see is recycled junk," said owner George Prisco. "What is one man's junk is our treasure."

The eclectic fusion menu was inspired by Prisco's upbringing. He was raised in an ethnically diverse neighborhood in the Queens section of New York and experienced cuisines from many different countries.

Chef Marcos Knudsen made some of those dishes for Crosland, including green Thai mussels, a blackened shrimp and grits, and one of the restaurant's most popular dishes, salmon tacos with a Szechuan sauce.

Krazy Fish is located at 2501 Central Avenue.
