The wines spread of over 100+ vintages and the savory dishes created by owner and chef Al Rineh: also founder of the international L’Ybane Restaurants. “We want create the experience of Nice with the essence of classic New York for our customers–that they taste and feel the richness of life found in southern France, immersed in the friendly and relaxed environment of our own La Carafe.”
More to come on wines and pricing. They serve a variety of hot and cold appetizers–spiced chickpea fritters, grilled merguez, eggplant caviar–and specialty pasta, seafood and Mediterranean entrees.
La Carafe’s floor seats up to 30 with its wood tables and copper covered bar aglow with oil candles. Customers can take in the charming details back dropped by funky lamps and shelved rows of wine accenting the exposed brick wall.
