French Cafe closes after nearly 30 years on the Upper West Side


UPPER WEST SIDE, NY — The patisserie inside the famous Ansonia building will carry its latest Croque Monsieur this month after nearly 30 years of bringing French cuisine to the Upper West Side.

Margot Patisserie has set its tentative closing date for Sunday, almost exactly 28 years after she first claimed the space on Broadway and West 74th Street in May 1994, the owners said.

“We would like to thank you for your support, especially during the pandemic,” Margot, the cafe’s owner, wrote on the website. “We hope our paths will cross again. In the meantime, take care and be well.”

The cafe’s lease ends in May, the owners said.

Margot Patisserie’s products have been heavily influenced by southern French cuisine and have focused on innovation and creating creative recipes over the years.

The menu included a smoked salmon platter, ham and gruyere croissants, Parisian breakfast, wine, low-fat turkey lasagna, duck leg confit, truffle macaroni and cheese , soups, salads and more.

Online ordering will remain available until the last day of the cafe, but many items are no longer in stock.

The cafe will remain open until closing from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day, with outdoor seating.
