Ti Couz may be sadly closed, but late this summer, you’ll be able to swing by downtown’s GALETTE 88 for a variety of crêpes and savory galettes (as well as a few sweet ones). Partners in the venture are Erin Rooney (Slow Club, Serpentine) and Céline Guillou (formerly of Yield Wine Bar). Their 40-seat gourmet galette and crêpe place is opening at 88 Hardie Place, the little alley around the corner from Rickhouse. They took over a 20-year-old pasta place called Pasta Bene, and the remodel includes returning elements of the space to their original form.

Initially they will be serving lunch Mon-Fri, with flexibility for happy hours, private dining, and pop-up dinners in the evenings. The service will be counter-style, with a focused menu—but big enough to include seasonal toppings, organic ingredients, and vegan/vegetarian options. They are also applying for a beer and wine license so that they can serve the traditional cider. The concept is modeled after Céline’s favorite crêperie in Brittany, Le Vahine. The owner, Jean-Marie Gillet, is a partner, and he will be coming from France to oversee the opening. 88 Hardie Pl., off Kearny, between Bush and Sutter.
