Same design with a little update and a brand newly designed back print with all the Le Gamin locations in Manhattan, Brooklyn and Boston since 1992. We found new locations due to our artist/creative friends who wanted us to move with them into new neighborhoods that had affordable rents. Twenty five years ago no landlord/developer/residents wanted a restaurant in the ground floor and most of the signs read: FOR RENT NO FOOD, now these same landlords/developers want to be your partner and food establishments are a draw to a new residential development. Did you live near a Le Gamin in the past 25 years?

Our friend, Florence Fabricant, gave us a nice mention in the NYT.
We are excited to announce our new project with Alex Russell, we are bringing back this Greenpoint institution, Brooklyn Label in the landmark Astral Building, to its original iteration of serving classic American food. A short stroll from Le Gamin on the corner of Franklin & Java. The landmark Astral was built in 1885 as housing for employees of Charles Pratt's Astral Oil Works. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 and designated a City Landmark in 1983.
Utilizing the same core philosophy behind Le Gamin, serving good French comfort food made with the best ingredients, will be applied to an All American Classics comfort food opening September 2017. A local neighborhood spot for good food and friendly atmosphere is our goal.

Ninigret Pond in Rhode Island is another place our oysters come from. Unlike Wellfleet oysters, these oysters stay under water the entire time, where as the Wellfleet oysters are exposed to air twice a day at low tide.
Lovely French classics to accompany a nice Côte de Provence rosé in our back garden.
Our back garden Spring blooms are just starting with the onset of warmer weather. Stop in for a quiet morning coffee or an afternoon urban escape. Lots of private events booked already so if you're planning a party shoot us an email asap firstname.lastname@example.org
Now serving our new Spring 2017 menu.
The weather is just starting to get really nice. Finally after a very long...not so harsh...winter.
A farm visit is now part of our travel plans wherever we go. This is Rainbow Farm in Anguilla. We learned a lot about how to farm in a tropical climate. And it was a nice change to see things in bloom like papaya trees and passion fruit trees, after a long grey East Coast winter. And nothing's better than touring a farm in my swim shorts straight from the beach.
We joined some friends on a last minute trip to visit a friend's house in Anguilla. A great trip with lots of farm visits, buying local fish after unsuccessful fishing trips and lots of swimming. We most cooked at home with local produce, meats and fish. Beautiful island.
The birds are going crazy looking for food after their long journey north. They are also busy looking for a mating partner and building their nest.
Book your next event at our new Le Gamin Skygarden opening this spring, an extension of our backyard garden across the street. Wraparound rooftop planted terrace on the East River with 360 views to Manhattan and Greenpoint. Amazing sunsets. Catering and bar service by us. Once weather permits, we will be serving WEEKEND BRUNCH and SUNSET OYSTERS...stay tuned for opening dates. email@example.com (718)770-7918

My cooking demo from the Abu Dhabi Book Fair.
Our local oysters have become very popular. We started serving fresh oysters when we acquired our Connecticut farm near the Rhode Island. We have been working with oyster farmers in Rhode Island and Wellfleet for our uber fresh supply. Oysters are a great starter with a chilled glass of Sancerre.
