Cafe Dancer Opens at 96 Orchard Today
For the last few weeks, team Cafe Dancer has been frantically preparing for the inevitable. Lots of last-minute paintwork, sign scraping, and other assorted interior detailing at 96 Orchard Street. The look of this latest sub-grade cafe seems more homey (and less tacky) than its Vie de France predecessor.

Anyway, we were informed that Cafe Dancer officially opens its doors to the neighborhood today for lunch. As reported in early February, the newcomer will offer casual eats with a feel similar to Cafe Gitane or Pink Pony. So we were told. Ownership also submitted and received approval [PDF] from Community Board 3 for full liquor privileges, provided food is served during all our of operation; the license is still pending with the SLA.
No identifying marquee markings just yet, though. Only a black and blue paint job. Right in the kisser.
