Paris-meets-Tokyo fashion brand Maison Kitsuné‘s Café Kitsuné has expanded its presence to NYC with the opening of a West Village location. The brand’s new café aims to bring Parisian café culture stateside through its menu of small plates, coffee and natural wines. Chef Yuji Tani is responsible for the food menu, which carries over the merging of Kitsuné’s French and Japanese cultures through sandwiches, salads and light snacks. Options include an Azuki Toast made with sweet red bean, a “Funky” pork-belly bánh mì and more.
The café itself was designed by Maison Kitsuné co-founder/owner Masaya Kuroki and TBD Architecture Studio, who took a natural approach to creating the space. Wood furnishings dominate the space, carrying over from wall fixtures to furniture. Painted exposed-brick walls add a welcome roughness to the interior, while a statement palm and woven seats contribute a softer touch.
In addition to the café’s edible options, a “Café Kitsuné Collection” of tableware crafted in France, as well as clothing and accessories are available to purchase alongside the café’s signature coffee beans and select snacks to-go.
Café Kitsuné’s New York location is currently open seven days a week from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the address below. Visit the café’s website for more information.
