The Library, named for the building's original use as the Astor Library, is a central element of the mezzanine level of this landmark edifice at Astor Place (which famously houses downtown performance venue The Public Theater). This warmly decorated supper club, open late nightly for dinner and cocktail service, is a dinner bar, watering hole and backstage lounge for downtown denizens and neighborhood dwellers, theatergoers, academics and artists alike. Chefs Andrew Carmellini and Zach Faulisi offer an eclectic American menu of bar snacks, shareable appetizers, sandwiches, dinner plates and desserts sourcing local ingredients with a New York influence.
