Café Standard, one of two new dining venues at Andre Balazs's The Standard East Village, opened its doors today. It's a classy-looking all-day restaurant, with a big gleaming bar, leather chairs, and a high ceiling lined with hanging plants. There's also a large outdoor dining area out front, where the shiny red tables and wooden banquette mirror their wood and leather indoor counterparts. Here's a peek at what that looks like:

Café Standard opens at 7 a.m. and stays open until the wee hours, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and drinks. The menu consists of casual American food, ranging from a pork belly sandwich and fries with stout beer mustard to beef tartare and mac and cheese with squash and kale. Dovetail's chef, John Fraser, had some input into this menu, but his real baby is the yet-named restaurant right next door. That one's still sealed up behind papered windows, but is slated to open in January 2014. The cafe menus are still being finalized, but check out the preliminary offerings below:
