Cafe Lafayette on the brink?

The picture that this Brooklyn Eagle article paints is not pretty. Nadir Khelifi purchased the restaurant in 2005 after it was named one of the top-10 dirtiest restaurants in the city. Business suffered, so Khelifi did what any enterprising restaurateur would do - he plans on closing it down and rebranding it as a tapas restaurant, much like his other restaurant at the old Liquors space on Dekalb and Adelphi.

This guy Nadir has alway been part of cafe lafayette. He bought the place from his partner. This is B.S.

That's such a bummer- Cafe Lafayette makes a killer burger.

I practically live across the street and I never go there. Not because it's dirty and dingy, but because they don't do free coffee refills during brunch. WTF?

I had to boycott that place because of their refusal to give free coffee refills, too. Give me a break!

This is a shame man. Cafe Lafayette was great when it first opened. Killer brunch, great dinner. It's a lost to the area.
