The corner of Bowery and Houston is about to become the cornucopia of Bowery and Houston. Just steps from the Whole Foods that hosts Brooklyn Flea’s Smorgasburg, the Flea’s Manhattan counterpart, the Hester Street Fair, is teaming up with the New Museum to open the Hester Street Cafe.
The folks at Hester — last seen teaming up with us for the Bedford + Bowery Bazaar, and soon collaborating with Grub Street on the Grub Street Food Festival — point us to the press release announcing the cafe’s opening next Wednesday.
In addition to coffee from Intelligentsia and baked goods from Café Grumpy, there’ll be a rotating array of vendors. The launch menu, by East Village barbecue spot Duck’s Eatery, will include goods by Juisi, P&H Soda, McNulty’s Teas, Pain D’Avignon, Saxelby Cheesemongers, Heritage Meat Shop, and dessert by Baking Soda Shop.
Team Hester sure has a lot going on: don’t forget their annual , as well.
