Lafayette is an everyday grand café and bakery in ceremony of French cooking at the corner of Lafayette Street and Great Jones Street in downtown Manhattan. Our market-driven bistro menu is a worldly homage to the genre that spans a variety of regions, from Provence to Normandy to neighboring Mediterranean coasts, offering a re-mastery of traditional dishes we love and some signatures.

Chef Andrew Carmellini is joined by Pâtissière Jen Yee and Boulanger James Belisle in the kitchen and Josh Nadel  has assembled a list of vin de campagne, cocktails, apéritifs and craft beers. Our main dining room, bakery and two private dining suites are housed inside an iconic landmark NoHo building originally designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh. Steered by Roman and Williams, the interiors are a cinematic landscape weighted in tradition and buoyed by new and natural touches like mahogany floors, towering arched windows overlooking the street and honey and blue-tiled columns that define intimate spaces. Our rotisserie oven stands just beyond the entry, and our bakery stays open late for perusing après dinner.

NoHo Hospitality’s restaurants also include Locanda Verde, The Dutch in New York & Miami BeachThe Library at The Public and Bar Primi.

Our wine list is a wide and varied collection of French bottles that compliment our style of cooking, dining and drinking here at Lafayette. We balance the familiar and the eclectic from the roots of France’s diverse wine producing regions. We are inspired by what local vintners across countrysides are drinking, time honored traditions, surprising anomalies and what we find to be delicious. Our 350-bottle list is assembled by grape and provenance. In addition to by-the-glass options, we feature a 15 oz. carafe du jour, and a small collection of older vintages and reserve wines upon request. Toujours Soif, Josh Nadel & Matthew Eisentraut.
