The French-Hungarian cafe I first told you about back in December will finally be opening its doors to the neighborhood today, in the space that was last occupied by Ozzie's Coffee.
Cafe Dada is a collaboration between two friends, Murat Ozcan and Gabor Ferencz. They met while working front-of-house at Rockefeller Center's Brasserie Ruhlmann, and Murat is a gregarious presence at the other cafe he owns, Couleur Cafe, further down Seventh.
The interior of the space is gorgeous, and preservationists will be pleased to learn that all of the original woodwork from its time as a pharmacy has been retained, and in fact more was uncovered during renovations. Stay tuned for photos; in the meantime here's the menu (click to enlarge). As promised, there's a solid assortment of both French and Hungarian specialties, with an expended menu (including more entrees, wine, and beer) to come.
