Lamazou Readies Bistro for Later This Month


Cheese and sandwich destination Lamazou is opening a restaurant just a block and a half away from its shop of seventeen years, and if all goes well, it’ll happen the week after next. Nancy Lamazou tells us that her husband Aziz has designed lunch, dinner, and tapas menus inspired by the cuisine of his native Tunisia, as well as those of Morocco and the southern regions of Spain, France, and Italy. Dishes will highlight “interesting spices” and, naturally, cheese (there’s even fondue!). The space, at 344 Third Avenue between 25th and 26th Streets, consists of a ten-seat communal table, a six-seat cheese bar, and a twelve-seat full liquor bar. (The wine list boasts 50 bottles.) “Our food is going to be fun and vivacious,” Lamazou tells us, and she says she designed the room with a modern Mediterranean feel to match. We’ll have interior shots as well as the menu as Bistro Lamazou nears its opening; in the meantime, sneak a peek inside via its Facebook page.
