The team behind cozy eateries 11th St. Café and Bonsignour have opened their biggest venture yet with the West Village’s Bakehouse. Perched a few steps above the West Side Highway, this rustic café features wooden furniture, oversize windows with river views, and an approachable menu of contemporary French fare. In the daylight, linger in the bright dining room over pastries and lattes. When the sun sets, a dimly lit ambiance, comfortable vibe, and flavorful plates reign. Seared sea scallops over a silky celery root puree, delicately seasoned roasted Brussels sprouts, and a hearty burger topped with gooey cheese and caramelized onions are sure to satisfy. A manageable wine list, offbeat beers, and creative cocktails are on hand to wash it all down.Recommended Dishes
