After showing an apartment in the Lower East Side, it was convenient to take the subway to get tickets to a show at The Public Theater on Lafayette Street. And that's when I stumbled upon Lafayette. I had heard that the Chinese Brasserie which used to be in that site was going to leave. And I've read somewhere than Andrew Carmellini was opening a new restaurant in NoHo. So of course, I hurriedly picked up the ticket and darted to Lafayette for a quick late lunch.
