Not so great
By opal on 10/16/2009
Well...on a busy Friday night with long lines at many other local restaurants, Cafe Lafayette had a lot of open space....and it's not that big to begin with. The food was just mediocre and with so much competition - they really need to get back to making really good food or I can't see it lasting.
A real cosy find

Perfect for a nice simple warm meal on a cold day. Sat inside with a great sandwich and coffee as it snowed outside - my heart was warmed!
Great meal before going to BAM

If you're looking for an inexpensive but intimate dining experience before heading to BAM this is the place. The portions are nice and they have a wide range of meals and prices. The burgers and paninis are under $10 and are great for a quick bite before heading to a show. The service is friendly, and they manage the room well. Plus it's BYOB, so you can save on the drinks.
Small, cozy bistro.

The best dishes are the most authentically French-North African. Go for the couscous or the moules. Great burgers too. Mediocre pasta, unless it's the lobster ravioli. For photos go to: www.eatbrooklynfood.blogspot.com
