They’ve been open for a couple of weeks now and the space is beautiful:
French cafe and bakery Maman now offers its popular chocolate chip cookie and other baked goods in new locations in Greenpoint and on the Bowery. The cafe, inspired by Michelin-starred chef Armand Arnal’s childhood in the south of France, originally opened in Soho less than two years ago, and after this week, it has five locations across the city. The Greenpoint location, at 80 Kent St., boasts 3,000-square-feet and a multi-level space, while the new Manhattan outpost is a collaboration with the new International Center of Photography at 250 Bowery.
Like the other cafes, the new Mamans both offer French pastries and seasonal savory foods like salad and soup. Greenpoint’s location, which has both dine-in and carry out, will soon also launch weekend brunch. The ICP cafe is for visitors of the new photography museum — complete with coffee cups printed with photos — but it also offers a to-go window with coffee and cookies for people passing by on the street.
