There is a selection of sandwiches, wraps, soups, and salads. Salads include a green salad with pears, pecans, and Gorgonzola and a roasted beet salad with honey lavender dressing. The entrees menu offers Short Rib, Pork Tenderloin Marsala, and a beautiful Rigatoni Bolognese.
Sunday brunch runs from 11pm ’til 8pm and offers Dutch Baby Pancakes, quiche, and popovers. Signature cocktails feature fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Cafe Arielle and the Stabin Museum are prime examples of creative reuse with dining tables constructed of the silk cutting tables, shelves made of sewing machine cabinets and table legs of pipe from the original heating system. The Avant Garden even features a dramatic sculptural element of recycled bowling balls on the rock outcrop wall. Located on upper West Broadway, Café Arielle provides a unique dining experience in a stunning setting with a beautiful outdoor dining patio, pure and simple café menu, full bar, a children’s play area and galleries full of mesmerizing art in the Stabin Museum.
Just upstairs you’ll find Vic’s Jazz Loft, an intimate jazz venue featuring Latin Jazz to bebop and African rhythms to classic jazz in an acoustically exceptional venue.
