Lafayette is an everyday French restaurant conducting the spirit of French dining anew in downtown Manhattan’s NoHo neighborhood. Open morning, noon and night, this grand café and bakery is dedicated to Chef Andrew Carmellini's market-driven bistro cooking in a timeless hallmark setting. Our light-flushed dining room features soaring arched windows overlooking the NoHo streetscapes and a lively rotisserie bar. Our corner boulangerie-patisserie is open all hours offering artisanal breads, croissants, Stumptown coffee drinks, a light breakfast or lunch and a host of confections. In warm weather months, our sidewalk cafe opens daily for open air breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner service.

Lafayette's great food, design, wine list, and its courteous staff make the restaurant a go-to setting for any day or night. It is always a delightful time, the food rich, or light, depending on your choice, and the friends we have taken have agreed that it was a lovely experience, and their meals were just perfect. As a fine bakery with incredible "looking" desserts, I would suggest trying to resist too much of the fresh bread and creamery butter to leave room for dessert, something I have yet to experience. Our last recent meal taught me a great deal when I saw the group at the next table having the most delicious looking incredibly designed desserts, one with warm dark chocolate being poured over a puffy pastry with what looked like vanilla mousse. We'll go back for that. And more.

The bakery basket always a favorite - service to main course a bit rushed.
