Raclette bringing French fare to 195 Avenue A
The sign is up for the new tenant coming to 195 Avenue A just north of East 12th Street.
The Raclette sign promises croques and tartines. We don't know anything else about the cafe at the moment.
However, on the April 2012 CB3/SLA committee docket there was a Raclette going for a wine and beer license in the former Jubb's Longevity space at 508 E. 12th St. Those plans never materialized. (And the same name and concept can't be a coincidence.)
The previous tenant here, Brooklyn Piggies, which sold pigs in a blanket, closed in late November.
