Family-inspired recipes to nourish the soul

A quintessentially French café adds some much-needed je ne sais quoi to a previously quiet stretch of downtown Manhattan.

Café Maman is the love child of its three founders: Armand Arnal, head chef at Michelin star restaurant La Chassagnette, in the south of France; entrepreneur and restaurateur Benjamin Sormonte; and baker and designer Elisa Marshall.

The daily-baked artisanal breads and pasties, the farm-fresh produce, and the quaint and cozy design make it a great new spot for a casual bite downtown.
