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, a Food & Wine Best New Pastry Chef, and Boulanger James Belisle in the kitchen. Our beverage team offers a list of vin de campagne, cocktails, apéritifs and craft beers. The main dining room, bakery and two private dining suites are housed inside an iconic landmark NoHo building originally designed by Henry J. Hardenbergh. Designed by Roman and Williams, the interiors are a cinematic landscape rooted in traditional brasserie style with new and natural touches like mahogany floors, spontaneous murals, towering arched windows overlooking the street and honey and blue-tiled columns that define intimate spaces. Our rotisserie counter is displayed right at entry, and the 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 PublicBar Primi and Little Park.

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.
