Cafe Gitane West Opens for Breakfast and Lunch

New, 2 comments

Phone: 212-255-4113
Status: Opened yesterday for breakfast and lunch

Because the West Village has just as many Euros and models as Nolita, sceney French-Moroccan joint Cafe Gitane figured it would be just as successful in the Jane Hotel as it is on Mott St. The owners are still waiting on some furniture, so she won't be fully open with dinner service until next week. But breakfast is one of Gitane's strong suits anyway. Plus it gives the restaurant time to establish itself as a neighborhood spot with the loafing masses of the far West Village and MePa. It's open from 7 AM - 4 PM until next week. For those unfamiliar with the menu, it's reprinted below.
