products

coffee, post nuclear eggs benedict etc... always original nouveau cuisine, featuring fresh ingredients, a decent wine list and something not always easy to locate in manhattanÑgood coffee! If visiting for the first time, be sure to try the smoked chickenon raisin-nut bread with mango & arugula mayonnaise

clientele

groovy nolita locals. distanced from the swaths of tourists that invade prince andbroadway, gitane is a perfect place for a lunch or brunch with design/fashion clients. on a sunny day, watch young european models file in and out with shopping bags in tow.

service

swift. friendly, charming, helpful... in a wordÑperfect.

interior

cute1950's french-esque pastel diner with glass facade, bar and outdoor seating. affected rustication (we love the antique cash register) with a simple bar that takes on a new candle lit charm during the evening. gitane is a very understated yet well-thou
