Chef Andrew Carmellini is returning to French cuisine today with the opening of Lafayette, his new project with restaurateurs Luke Ostrom and Josh Pickard in Noho. Here's a look around the space, which was designed by Roman & Williams. Craft alum Damon Wise is working as the chef de cuisine, Per Se veteran James Belisle is in charge of the bread, and former Aureole pastry chef Jen Yee is in the pastry department. Lafayette is opening, oh, right about now for pastries and coffee, and dinner service is slated to kick off tonight at 5:30 p.m. Take a look around the dining room and bar, check out the menus below, and stay tuned for pictures of the cafe space later this week.
