It's a small Japanese coffee-tea shop during the day ... in which the owners welcome you to bring your favorite records here for them to play. (Never did get confimration that the cafe is named after the Strokes song of the same name.)
The cafe is open Tuesday-Sunday from 9 a.m to 5 p.m.
Starting this weekend, Hard to Explain will launch their beer-wine-sake service in the back. They only have a few seats in the bar area and are asking that interested parties to DM them on Instagram for a reservation.
This space was previously a private dining room called Me and You via chef Jehangir Mehta, who ran the well-regarded restaurant Graffiti next door.
