As we noted last week, Caffe Bene on Avenue A at 13th Street closed for renovations.
The signage noted that the cafe was adding items such as burgers, steaks, quinoa bowls, tacos and quesadillas to the menu.
Caffe Bene remains closed today, just a day past the expected reopening... the new sign notes that they need a few more days on the renovations...
Rish, the owner here, left a comment on the previous post. He wrote, in part:
1) The previous menu is still in full effect — we'll still have yogurt, acai & pitaya bowls, avocado toast, waffles & soups.
2) We're adding a menu through which we can attract more of a crowd in the evening. We close at 11PM on most nights and midnight on the others so it's very tough for us to cater to "late-night drinkers"
Thanks to Steven for the photos!

EVG reader Lola Sáenz shared these photos... she was there to hang a piece of her art in the cafe...

The cafe is now back open.
