Part of NoHo Hospitality Group
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 Chef de Cuisine Brian Nasworthy, Pâtissière Tyler Atwell, 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.
