Storefront reveal: Raf's at the former Parisi Bakery on Elizabeth Street

Workers have removed the plywood from outside 290 Elizabeth St. between Bleecker and Houston, where the owners of the Michelin-starred Musket Room down the street are opening a new café at the former home of Parisi Bakery. 

Raf's "aims to evoke the grand cafés of Europe and create an intimate space for café culture downtown," per Forbes. The new space will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Raf's will also be making use of Parisi's "immaculately preserved built-in bread ovens." Eater has a preview here

Reservations for Raf's start this week

ICYMI: Parisi Bakery, a sibling of the famed Mott Street institution, closed in the summer of 2021. The Elizabeth Street outpost had produced all of its bread for restaurants and groceries since 1974.
