More Al Fresco Eating For Roosevelt Island Coming Soon - Gristedes Cafe Setting Up Bistro Tables And Chairs Outside Entrance Starting April 1
I heard earlier today that Roosevelt Island's new Gristedes Cafe
would be setting up outdoor seating.
I asked a Gristedes representative if that was true and received this reply:
Yes, we applied for a permit and it has just been approved. Starting April 1 and continuing through October, Gristedes will set up Bistro tables and chairs outside the entrance door to accommodate customers who may wish to enjoy their cafe purchases outdoors. It is our intention to provide a comfortable place to relax with a cup of coffee and pastry or eat a quick lunch. We hope that it will be well received.
Gristedes Cafe outdoor seating will be a welcome addition to Roosevelt Island, particularly for those living in Manhattan Park and the Octagon.
It may even encourage Southtown Riverwalk folks to make the trek north more often.
I hope the Gristedes Cafe keeps the soft pretzels replenished, they have been out for the last two days.
