The Village Tart

Yesterday, my buddy Tai took me down to Nolita to check out a new bakery/café/wine bar/lounge called The Village Tart. Turns out the place was having its soft launch that very evening and was serving complimentary food and drinks (with donations going to Haiti)!

The interior is very intimate and perfect for a laid-back romantic date or just catching up with close friends. With marble table tops, a (non-functioning) fireplace and comfy nooks, it has just the right mix of fancy and casual. And I'm nowhere near a narcissist, but I couldn't get enough of their walls of mirrors. What a great way to make the space look bigger while employing each one as a piece of art!

The Village Tart will serve a selection of sweet and savory tarts (their salted caramel one was mmm!) along with other "uncomplicated foods." Didn't know eating could turn into an issue, but I'll gladly take my chances with this one.

  10. I wish my little "people" tarts would hurry up and learn to cook. That way I could leave them at home and go to places like this. :)
