More casual than fancy

“Summer Day Every Day” is the motto of A Summer Day Café, and the goal, says restaurateur Matt Abramcyk, is to evoke the carefree feeling of summer, and the decor certainly brings to mind a visit to the beach: The space has abundant light, nautical stripes, yellow and blue accents, and cute illustrations painted here and there. The entrance is now on W. Broadway, into the center of the atrium, flanked by a bar on one side and prime tables and booths on the other. (The people-watching will rival anywhere in Tribeca.) Up on the main level are more tables, some with banquettes of slatted wood and nestled among a nursery’s worth of plants. The appealing coastal Italian menu by chef Michael Matteo—formerly of Yves and, before that, Locanda Verde and Lafayette—is loaded with seafood, raw and cooked.
