New Museum x Hester Street Fair

Beginning this Wednesday, two nascent Lower East Side brands will work together on a new cafe concept. The New Museum is joining forces with the three-year-old Hester Street Fair to launch the in-house “Hester Street Cafe.” It’ll be a foodie haven.

Curated by the Hester folks, the cafeteria will operate similar to the weekly market itself, with an ever-evolving menu of provisions from local food entrepreneurs. Intelligentsia Coffee and baked goods from Café Grumpy are the mainstays. On opening day, you can expect to find goods by Juisi fresh-pressed juices, Melt ice cream sandwiches, P&H Soda, McNulty’s Teas, Pain D’Avignon breads, Saxelby Cheesemongers, Heritage Meat Shop, and dessert by Baking Soda Shop.

The Hester Street Cafe is located on the ground floor of 235 Bowery, and museum admission is not necessary to dine here. It’s open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm and Thursdays from 11 am to 9 pm.
