Rustico is now open on First Avenue

Rustico is now open at 135 First Ave. near St. Mark's Place. We don't know too much about the place, other than that they specialize in crêpes and serve Italian coffee (per the chalkboard sign out front).

The address was previously home to Iconic Hand Rolls, which closed in April after 10 months in business.

Crêpes for First Avenue?

Not a chain, not froyo, not tacky! I'll give it a try.

Sounds great!
I'm all for more good crepes in the neighborhood (longtime fan of Crooked Tree as well).

The door was open last Friday and there was a crowd of crepe eaters inside. I walked in and was told it was a private party. Suggestion to owner: Don't start out by excluding neighbors from your restaurant. We're the ones who are going to pay your rent.

We apologize for the inconvenience! It was a private taste testing. We would like to serve you only our finest crepes!

A little green service wise. Nice ambience but needs more experienced staff
