Gourmet Bistro, Amuse Bouche Located in the Historic La Marqueta Market, East Harlem




Amuse Bouche Bistro reopens in La Marqueta

Update: The very popular eatery Amuse Bouche will be closing its doors for good, with the last day 5pm on Sunday, June 23, 2024.

Oh, how New Yorkers enjoyed the gourmet bistro, Amuse Bouche, when they opened their doors in the historic East Harlem La Marqueta Market last year. It quickly became a go-to place for a wide selection of tempting treats, fresh baked goods, sumptuous prepared meals, finely brewed coffees and teas ~ and a great place to meet for Sunday Brunch.

Special treats in every nook & cranny

While the COVID-19 year of closures was a quiet time for most, Anthony Mariano and Edward Rodwell (creative co-founders of Amuse Bouche Bistro) were planning on putting into play a new vision ~ one that would include our new normal ~ safe, social distancing, and a new set of needs for their patrons.

Reopened with outdoor seating!

At our sneak-peek above, from left to right, the green market stands ready to be filled, to-go fridge in the back beginning to fill-up, next to a custom-made blackboard for the Bistro Fare of the Day ~ Sandwiches, salads, quiches and, and special treats.

Yes, the Bistro now boasts a Green Market Farm Stand. Calling it Fresh From the Farm, the farm stand will present between five and eight fresh farm products all the time. These local, free-range products could be eggs, cheeses, pears, apples, butternut squash…..seasonal offerings.

Bistro Coffee, Espresso, Latte, Cappuccino

The new Bistro has expanded its French Patisserie with twice as many imports, bakery goods, and sweets. With an expanded footprint within the Market, the Bistro now has a Retail Fridge with to-go soups, prepared meals, side salads, and cold drinks. Come inside and purchase, or if you’re not quite ready to come in, they offer curbside pickup.

You’ll find plenty of socially distanced tables, indoors and out.

A new, expanded menu was being created while we were there, which includes many of the old favorites that even the most particular foodies look forward to ~ reminding us of an article we read entitled ‘Secrets of a Divine Egg Salad Sandwich.’

    1. We are a blog site. The Bistro will reopen on Thursday, and we will be able to post its new website, where you will be able to communicate with them directly.
