The restaurant has two large wood-burning ovens leftover from its former life as Moishes bakery. One will be devoted to pastry, pies, and fresh baked breads (Im from Texas, so Im thinking jalapeo cornbread), and the other one will go for Sunday dinnertype proteins like whole chickens and piglets big primal cuts whose aroma will suffuse the restaurant. The New Williamsburg Caf will open up July 4 weekend, but neighbors may want to drift by a few days prior to that. Bang says the atmosphere will be very cook-centric. I want it to be a cooks forum, he says.
The New Williamsburg Caf, 170 Wythe St., at N. 7th St.; no phone yet.
