Old/Closed Keith McNally restaurant in Nolita?

Does anyone remember the name of a Keith McNally restaurant that was in Nolita, I believe, maybe around Grand Street? (Not Schiller's, Pastis,Blathazar, Odeon, or Morandi) Cafe something? Does anyone have any info on this place?

    I think it was on Mott and Spring. May have been Cafe Leibowitz...or something similar. That space has been a few places in recent years.

        Yes, it's now Barmarche. Cute place. I've only had a nice Pinot Noir at the bar, though the menu looks pretty appetizing and I would go back to eat. Nice bartender when I visited back in December.

          I've been there maybe 3-4 times in the last couple of years. The food is good. I had some service issues... having to wait nearly two hours for a table when they initially said half-hour. They did their best though, and we got a round of drinks and eventually a bigger table than necessary. I think they had some campers they didn't want to evict.

          It's a good place to go either for food or for drinks.

        Not thinking of Lucky Strike on Grand and W Broadway, right?
