Food will once again return to 61 Hester Street.
Since 2013, the shuttered Brown and Orange on Hester Street have remained in the catering game. That was the year the longtime favorites ended the public-facing restaurant. Instead, the spaces functioned as host for random events and/or preparing for others at 61 Hester Street. Three years in the private sphere are likewise concluding here on the Lower East Side.
Argentinian chef and potter Fernando Aciar reportedly signed a lease on both commercial units, and will bring restaurant and artist workshop to 61 Hester. According to the fall preview in New York Magazine, Aciar’s Greenwich Village coffee shop, O Cafe, will open here sometime next month. It’ll serve small-plate brunch and dinner daily. The shop next door will house Fefo Studio, a retail showcase for his own ceramics line.
