Les Enfants de Bohème Seizes Adjacent Space for ‘Takeaway’ Annex

Adding adjacent takeaway counters seems to be the latest trend in downtown dining. Well-tread establishments such as Dudley’s and Dimes both installed “Deli” concepts beside their main dining rooms. Each includes both takeaway meal options and opportunities to purchase dry goods. The latest to jump on this proverbial bandwagon is a familiar face.

The Les Enfants de Bohème sequel debuted at 177 Henry Street last July. Seven months later, the time is apparently ripe to expand the footprint. Proprietor Stefan Jonot recently signed a lease on the adjacent store lining Jefferson Street. Purpose of the annex is twofold – enlarge the kitchen and create the aforementioned to-go concept.

Street Seat on Jefferson St, July 2015

This latest intel was gleaned from an application to Community Board 3 for a Street Seat extension. You know, that elevated bench contraption that sits curbside during the warmer months. The intention is to further “open up” the area to become more “inviting” as public amenity for locals (and also to increase visibility to boost business). This entails increasing the current 26-foot-long installation by another fourteen feet, allowing for three to four additional tables with nine to twelve seats. (DOT sets forty feet as the maximum for Street Seats.)

Apparently, the 7th Precinct commended Les Enfants de Bohème for the Street Seat, as it transformed a former “crack corner” into a friendly neighborhood hangout.

Jonot will appear before CB3 tomorrow night for blessings.
