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.

I noticed Raclette going in yesterday and couldn't even recall what had been there previously.

It's got to be Edgar from Urban Motion. He wanted to open Raclette in the space with the scooter store but it's not zoned so he was denied and opened the scooter store instead.

That must be the place that was that Little Piggies place for a short time.
