The insides of the former Yaffa Cafe are now mostly outside

An EVG tipster notes the ongoing work out back of the former Yaffa Cafe, which crews are turning into a new restaurant from the owners of St. Dymphna's down the way here on St. Mark's Place.

Yaffa Cafe closed after 32 years last fall at 97 St. Mark's Place between Avenue A and First Avenue.

It's too bad the people who ran Yaffa couldn't get their act together but so glad to hear the people from St. Dymphna's are behind the new restaurant! Does anyone know when it is expected to open?
