Featuring panini, soups, salads, coffees and pastries, a new version of the Artspace Cafe opens today. Horacio D'Agostino, chef and operator of the revivified Cafe, has made quite a name for himself as a downtown purveyor of high-quality lunches and catering. The young chef says "I put my emphasis on fresh ingredients, making items from scratch; there's something different about that kind of food."

Having D'Agostino's food in Artspace certainly seems a good idea. Artspace is one of the city's splendid rooms, and the cafe, designed by Chris Fowler-Sandlin under Sandy Kallenberg, is a boite waiting
for a tony chef.

Hours are 10 am to 6 pm, Mon through Sat.

Also, Artspace premiers a clothing & couture show this week: it is called In Fashion, the Art of Style. And the reception was thronged with ladies who lunch. Buono apetito.
