I enjoy going to places that are not like anything else in the city. I don't think I've been anywhere that is quite like Le Petit Triangle Cafe.
Located in Ohio City, LPTC is nestled in a small space on the corner of Fulton and West 32nd Streets. The inside of the cafe only has about 7 or 8 tables. As you walk in the door the "kitchen area", which is open to the rest of the cafe, is on your right. The tables run the length of the left hand side of the space.
What is neat about the cooking area is that the counter is only waist high and as best as I can remember is not at all hidden by heat lamps and shelves. Everything that is being prepared is in plain sight of everyone sitting at their tables.
Since I had just eaten at the Seti's truck, it was Regina that was going to do the ordering. As a dutiful husband I was willing to help her finish her food if needed.
She decided on the Smoked Trout Plate which came with capers, red onion, crackers, and chopped egg. Always a sucker for lentils she also ordered the Warm Lentils with a lemon dressing.
While I can't speak for the lentils, I can say that the Smoked Trout was very good. I think what I liked the most was that there was a good variety of crackers to go along with the fish.
I think it's just a really comfortable place to eat. It almost seems as if it's been there for decades. The outdoor area looks like it would be in high demand during the summer. Le Petit Triangle certainly makes my top five for Ohio City.
