A neighborhood bar restaurant occupying the space of a 1920’s bank. The décor is inspired by nineteenth century Parisian establishments. Terra Cotta textured walls, dimly lit chandelier’s, copper table tops & curved banquette seating create a very unique and intimate setting. Executive Chef, John J. Loughran formerly of River Café in Brooklyn has created a menu that changes seasonally; using the best of locally sourced ingredients. Chef John’s philosophy, buy local and be creative. This is evident in every dish you taste at Banc Café. Our cocktails are created using fresh fruit & natural ingredients. We feel that tasty food & flavorful drinks provided with honest friendly service is a great

I was here with a friend from Boston and a friend from Belfast.
We decided to order small plates and “share” between us.
I say “share” but in reality we had to order more because there was no sharing going on!!
The food was tremendous,...More
This is what eating out in New York is all about. The Banc has a great atmosphere and an extremely friendly staff. The menu is not large but the selection is good. You should have no problem finding something for everyone. Their wine selection is...More
Had the most amazing food drinks and craic here when we were visiting New York. Tom is just so amazing and makes each visit so special! Views of the empire state from outside seating area beautiful and a class place to people watch.

The menu was detailed with just enough options,...More
I live coming to banc cafe right after work. I usually come in for dinner or just a cocktail and it doesn't disappoint. The rosehill cocktail is amazing and having lamb chops as a appetizer is fantastic.
