When I stopped by the new outpost of Antique Garage on Church Street yesterday afternoon, there was no one available to answer questions, so we’ll have to be content with photos and menus. Then again, if you’ve been to the original Antique Garage on Mercer, you’ll feel right at home: The Turkish/Mediterranean menu and the rococo, antique-laden decor are the same. (The piano by the table in the window indicates there will be music, too.) The space—most recently Church Street Tavern—has been home to several restaurants in recent years, but it has never looked better than it does now. The restaurant started serving dinner last night; lunch and brunch kick off next week.
Antique Garage is at 313 Church St. (between Lispenard and Walker); 212-226-0066; antiquegaragesoho.com.
