Closing: Brett’s Cafe Americain

Brett’s Cafe Americain, verily a Roscoe Village institution, will be shutting its doors on Sunday, April 29th. In its place will be another Orange, which people seem to like. But the real story, which is documented on Brett’s blog and reported on by Phil Vettel, is that Brett’s off to Mexico to open up an Indian hotel and restaurant. How’s that for ya? Evidently, after a year of traveling around India, she got the fever and decided to run with it. Indian food adapts really well to whatever environment it’s placed in (like Chinese and Thai), and we can only imagine what happens when curry meets mole. Good luck to everyone involved.
