Artopolis Rebranded As “The New York Basics”

The former Greek cafe Artopolis, located between 113th and 114th street and Amsterdam, has become a Columbia staple famous through brunch foods like crepes, pastries, and omelets. However, the restaurant recently reopened under a new name, “The New York Basics,” and boasts a new menu.

Additions include quick grab-and-go options like scones, muffins, donuts, chips, espresso drinks, and a wide variety of bagels and spreads. The new, sleekly-renovated storefront will no longer be serving a sit-down brunch, lunch, and dinner menu as its predecessor did.

When asked for the reason behind the change, an employee remarked that the owner hopes the restaurant will become a popular option for busy New Yorkers looking for a basic, simple, and quick option. Interested in trying the new items on the menu? In that case, The New York Basics will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. between Monday and Friday.
