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 new French country cooking and the daily social rhythms of eating for pleasure. Our light-flushed dining room features soaring arched windows overlooking the NoHo streetscapes and a live-action rotisserie bar. Our corner boulangerie-patisserie is open all hours offering artisanal breads, Stumptown coffee drinks, a light breakfast or lunch, and a host of confections.
