Ciao for Now at 523 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B is returning to service every Tuesday evening from 5-10 p.m. — starting tonight.
The family-owned cafe shut down its dining room after 17 years at the end of January. However, ownership was continuing on with their catering business as well as using the space for community events.
Here's part of Ciao for Now's message yesterday via Instagram:
We are hoping to create a place to gather and enjoy a casual cup of soup together to promote community engagement (and deliciousness). We will have our ginger green tea, wine and beer available along with turkey chili, lemon chickpea leek and tomato bisque soup for sale. You can take a container to go or sit and enjoy your soup here.
