NileGuide Expert Says:
One of the City's first restaurants to offer vegetarian cuisine, the café attracts a casual, literary/intellectual crowd.
- Releases sensations of invigorating relief if you walk in from a sub-zero winter's day. If you can get to them before anyone else, the sofas squatting in the corner are a fine place to snuggle embryo-like as you blissfully await your menu. Ordering one of the vat-sized cappucinos, accompanied by the complementary measure of vodka, will induce such sanguinity that you might well be encouraged to make a bedroom of the place for the night. Hear Ella Fitzgerald crooning to you from the background and your eyelids could well become too heavy to resist. As the place closes at midnight however, the cold very much beckons once again. But for a short while the slicing breeze and icy pavements will be just a distant shiver. For all the above reasons, The Idiot isn't an obvious choice during the White Nights/Summer.
