Cody Utzman adds another Crown at the Opening of Café Royal

Greenpoint Brooklyn, NY March 5, 2010 – Café Royal is the latest venture from Chef Cody Utzman of Brooklyn Standard and Papacitos fame. It is happily situated at 195 Nassau Avenue, near celebrated McGorlick Park in the growing North Greenpoint community. The concept of Café Royal was inspired by the hours Cody spent at local bar tabacs in the Burgundy region of France, where as a foreigner, he was immediately embraced by the local staff and patrons.

By definition, a bar tabac is a meeting place for the community and this became Café Royal’s aim — to provide a casual yet artfully decorated venue for people to enjoy barista crafted espresso drinks while sampling French-inspired fare.

With no waited table service, the informal communal atmosphere at Café Royal allows patrons to seat themselves, drink self-serve triple filtered water from a charming glass bottle, and order menu items directly from the multi-lingual bar staff. All of this encourages coterie between neighbors, both new and longstanding.

In the coming weeks, Café Royal will be introducing our all day menu and with fingers crossed, a beer & wine license will be issued. And once the tulips bloom, our 40 seat garden will be delightfully sun-drenched and ready to transport you to your very own France in Brooklyn. Until then we invite you to come by and enjoy our free Wi-Fi access, expertly brewed Stumptown Coffee and Ceci Cela’s classic French pastries.
