The East Village Is Getting Cheesier. Literally.


Taureau might be holding down the fort as the East Village’s go-to fondue spot, but it’ll be getting some competition from Casimir, the cozy French bistro, which is turning its Moroccan lounge into an annex serving all kinds of foods for dipping.

In addition to cheese fondue, reps tell us that the 35-seat mini-restaurant (now under new management) will also offer meat and chocolate fondues. It’ll open either on November 9 or 10, which is just around the time the weather is going to get really cold and you’re going to want some hot, melted goodness.
