A cozy cafe-restaurant opens at 643 Hudson Street.
After the success of their first two restaurants, Sonnyboy (65 Rivington Street) and Banter #1 (169 Sullivan Street), Josh Evans and Nick Duckworth have opened a second Banter in the West Village.
The 600-square-foot restaurant is light and airy like its predecessors, and provides a laidback feel customers can find comfort in when sipping on a cappuccino near the front windows. Signature paintings from John Grillo, Jessica Poundstone and prints from Anna Roberts also adorn the walls at Banter #2.
“We are really excited to be open in the West Village and to have the opportunity to bring fresh, delicious food to more locals.” said Banter co-founder Josh Evans. “Banter is a hybrid between a restaurant and a cafe—bringing strong coffee culture that’s complimented by fresh and healthy dishes that can be made to go or dine in.”
With executive chef Jake Hawkins in the kitchen, you’ll find sweet and savory options on the menu: house-made granola with berries, bananas and yogurt, a Nutella French toast with Vermont maple syrup and fruits, avocado toast with goat cheese, tomato and basil on sourdough, and the restaurant’s signature Australian folded eggs, served with mushrooms, bacon, a small green salad and slices of avocado.
At peak hours, the restaurant can seat up to 34. Banter is open every day from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 643 Hudson Street, New York, banternyc.com
