Couleur Cafe, the new French cafe coming to 435 Seventh Avenue (between 14th and 15th Streets) is looking good, and just about ready to open. Signage went up over the weekend (along with a coat of turquoise paint), and owner Murat Ozcan tells me that it's all systems go to open up on Tuesday.
Ozcan hopes that the cafe, which will be run with partner Francois Ronget, will become a cultural gathering place for the community, a place where regulars can come to read the paper, have a pastry, and discuss events of the day with Ozcan and fellow patrons.
Coffee will be a custom blend designed by Ronget in collaboration with Brooklyn Roasting, and it will be cold-pressed, which "keeps all the nutrients in," according to Ozcan.
