TRIBECA — Some homey French fare is on its way to TriBeCa.

Maman, a cozy French cafe and bakery that opened its first storefront in SoHo last year, is getting ready to bring its sweets and savory bites to 211 W. Broadway in November.

The new location, the former home of longtime wine shop Maslow 6, has plans to serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner, along with some cocktails, the cafe's owners told Community Board 1 earlier this week.

"This is home-style, country food from the South of France," said Elisa Marshall who co-owns the bakery with her French boyfriend, Benjamin Sormonte. "We care about fresh, seasonal ingredients, and great food."

The SoHo Maman, on Centre Street, is more of a grab-and-go cafe, that closes by 6 p.m. The TriBeCa restaurant will stay open until midnight, and serve larger plates, in family-style servings.

Along with a variety of baked goods, including focaccia bread, croissants and madeleines, the eatery serves lunch items like salads and sandwiches, and is planning for a host of savory dinner dishes. Some larger dinner plates include "baby piglette" and homemade giant ravioli, according to the sample menu.

The CB committee gave the cafe its support for the liquor license application.

The owners, who live together in TriBeCa, are hoping for an November opening, though an exact date is not yet said, they said.
