For great international cuisine with a fabulous crowd, this is the place.
Great lunch spot. Fresh food; Good crowd.
I have long loved this French/Moroccan cafe in Nolita. It is small, quaint and unpretentious with beautiful waitresses and, more importantly, delicious food. They serve breakfast all day (items like baked eggs and orange blossom waffles), small plates like the palate awakening, avocado, lemon and chili-flake toast. Their salads are really well done with smoked trout as an option that's a real crowd-pleaser. Their couscous is a sight to behold, piled high like a statue with a scoop of hummus on top. Filling and flavorful. For sandwiches, there is my very favorite dish, an open-faced smoked chicken and mango sandwich on cranberry bread. They do not take reservations and it is quite popular at lunch with the tiny tables they have outside (becomes a model type crowd at times) but the wait is never more than 20 minutes, and well worth it, if you ask me!
En Nolita, probablemente el rincón más bonito de Manhattan, no hay que perderse su bocadillo de pollo y su terraza plagada de gente guapísima.
Great for brunch / coffee / wine - anytime.
Comfy, warm, vibrant decor, delicious food, great lattes.
