Le Café Starving Artiste

492 Nostrand Ave between Halsey and Hancock St
Brooklyn, NY


Time Out NY Partners Todd Johnson and Emeka Okafor spent more than 15 months transforming this former dry-cleaning shop into a quaint café. Hanging plants and bookcases frame two big picture windows, eclectic paintings and photographs line the walls, and a blend of Miles Davis and dance tunes make the spot a welcome alternative to neighborhood roti shops and fast-food chains. On the brief menu: chicken crêpes in a tangy yellow curry sauce, and roasted salmon with a honey-mustard glaze and couscous, which you can pair with whatever your heart desires--from the liquor store. Le Café is BYOB.
