cafe gitane - does it live up to the crowd?

2 slices | Jun 13, 2003 10:13 AM

Any reviews. I live right there but have never been to this place. Something about it irks me, proably the droves of "see and be seeners" that arrive every weekend morning by cab. It looks to me like a neighborhood place but there they pull up for brunch. How great can it be? Are sunglasses mandatory?

I have similar feelings about cafe habana but the food is quite good and the waitresses are gorgeous. The crowd there also doesnt seem as snooty IMHO.

Sorry if I offended anyone.
