Well that was quick. The Kickstarter-owned cafe never really got its footing and will now become an event space:
After a magical year serving the greenpoint community, we are sadly closing our doors for regular service. thank you for supporting us and being a part of our lives.
the space will continue to live in the community for private gatherings and celebrations. if you wish to inquire about throwing a birthday party, wedding, baby shower, or anything, please email us at [email protected]
thank you again for being our favorite neighborhood. we will miss seeing you very much.
At Leuca, breakfast will be daily from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Like at dinner, Carmellini and executive chef Anthony Ricco drew inspiration from Southern Italy for the menu. An eggs Benedict comes with pepperoni, pane siciliano, and pizza hollandaise, and a baked egg dish comes with Calabrian chiles, mozzarella, and grilled bread. A waffle option is made with polenta and comes with orange-mulberry syrup and mascarpone, and the pancake option is lemon-ricotta. Pastries and fresh juices will also be available.
Lunch, only available on weekdays from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., offers pizzas, pastas, and a selection of antipasti, including a fennel salad and a tuna crudo. Three Italian sandwiches also show up at lunch, one with chicken cutlet and marsala mushroom and another with salami, provolone, giardiniera, and Calabrian pepper. It will be the second daytime food option from the group at The William Vale Hotel, located at 111 North 12th St. Seasonal Airstream burger truck Mister Dips, which Eater resident carnivore Nick Solares says dishes out a joy of a burger, is still open for business at the hotel’s public park. Check out the full breakfast and lunch menus below, and let us know what you think if you stop by.
In Greenpoint, Luksus at Torst was once again awarded a star. And in Williamsburg, the Aska reboot got its first star with Meadowsweet, Delaware and Hudson, Semilla, and of course Peter Luger Steak House remaining on the list.
