Chip Shop vacated its space on Fifth Avenue near Sixth Street on December 24th of last year, after 13 years of serving fish and chips and other British fare. Many thanks to tipster MaryAnne for sending the above photo of what will be its replacement: a Malaysian fusion and seafood restaurant called Al Seabu.
There unfortunately isn't much more information available online about the restaurant; a search only reveals an empty Facebook page for an "Alseabu Parkslope" and a State Liquor Authority contact sheet that lists the restaurant's address as 381-383 Fifth Avenue. Both of those storefronts (381 was Corner Burger) were up for lease, and shuttered, at the same time, so it's surprising that this one looks like it'll only be taking over Chip Chop's space. Perhaps the owners have a second concept in store for the corner space?
