A quirky little farm-to-table restaurant is planning to open in the next couple of weeks at 142 West 83rd Street, the former site of laundromat KB Laundry Service. Called “Say Cheese”, the restaurant will be take-out only and serve grilled cheese sandwiches, homemade soups, hot chocolate, s’mores and “fresh local fruit sno-cones”. Just about everything on their menu will require about 12 napkins for a slob like me.
According to a preliminary menu, they will offer a wide assortment of grilled cheese sandwiches, including a gruyere and candied bacon sandwich on peasant bread.
The site describes the food like this:
“Farm-to-Table” ingredients from local greenmarkets & organic produce vendors. We take pride in showcasing fresh, top quality ingredients in a way that supports local farmers and sustainability.”
The restaurant will be run by Scoozi Events, a catering firm. Look for it to open in the next two weeks, an employee there told me. It will be open from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. every day except Monday, when it will be closed.
