☞ INTRODUCING: Cafe Bagutta

Back up the hill of Morningside Park, one will find the the former Cafe Fresh has been replaced in less than three weeks of its closing by the brand new Cafe Bagutta. Just opened this week, the former contemporary space has been replaced by a decidedly more European, old-school feel with an aged copper storefront and striking gold leaf signage. Fashionista Marc Bagutta (founder of the famous 1990's Soho uber boutique, Bagutta, to which all Parsons students went for research) opened the space with the ambitious goal of bringing downtown Manhattan uptown. We have yet to stop by, but the service issues that plagued the former Cafe Fresh should all be rectified at this well-appointed establishment. Cafe Bagutta is located at 1241 Amsterdam Avenue between West 120th and West 121st Street. Tel.(212) 222-6340. Take the A, C, B, D to 125th Street or the 1 train to 116th Street. Photo by Ulysses
