Rumors: Marc Jacobs Cafe to Open Uptown
Updated at 12:01 PM EST on Wednesday, Feb 9, 2011
On the heels of Friday's Bookmarc bookstore opening, Marc Jacobs company president Robert C. Duffy announces the next jewel in the brand's crown: a Manhattan eatery.
According to Racked, Jacobs' business partner confirms that an uptown location is coming soon. This wouldn't be the first Marc Jacobs Cafe -- a Milan location opened during Spring 2010 fashion week -- but it will be a first given that, unlike every other Jacobs outpost, it won't be downtown.
The Stephan Jaklitsch-designed euro outpost is a slick, neon, boutique-cafe hybrid that boasts pizza to boot, so we can only guess what a New York iteration will bring.
A call in to company PR got a no-comment, but we'll be sure to keep you posted.
