The International Center of Photography Unveils Updated ‘Capa Cafe’
The International Center of Photography has again rebranded its cafe nook in the aftermath of Maman’s departure from 250 Bowery.
Great Performances, the sustainability oriented New York food service and events company were tapped to reinvent and operate Capa Cafe (a nod to ICP founder and photojournalist, Cornell Capa). It opened in the ground floor last week.
This newest iteration of the ICP cafe was redesigned into a 40-seat eatery with an extensive coffee and tea offering, as well as a new menu touting “Bacon Onion Frittata, tumbleweed Cheddar, tomato jam, English muffin and Avocado Toast, smashed avocado with egg, shaved radish and pea tendrils.”
They also plan on serving lunch and afternoon snacks, including baked on-site breads and pastries, made-to-order sandwiches, and hot entrées.
The formerly midtown-based International Center of Photography purchased the ground floor of 250 Bowery for $23.5 million in the spring of 2015. They opened here in June 2016.
