What makes The Cornelia Street Café a true New York City landmark, an epicurean destination, an artist's café that cultivates and inspires, and one of the few remaining Greenwich Village bastions for creative music, spoken word, art, theatre, cabaret and much more':

-For more than thirty years the Café has provided food for the soul as well as the body, with more than 700 performances a year covering everything from science to songwriting, from Russian poetry to Latin jazz, from theatre to cabaret.

-When the Café opened its doors on July 4th weekend, 1977, it was run by three artists, there was one room with a toaster-oven, a cappuccino machine and a refrigerator display case. Now, the three artists remain, but with two full kitchens and two full bars which serve more than thirty wines by the glass. There are three dining rooms, one with a working fireplace, and an audience and artist-friendly performance space. And in the summer there is one of the Village's loveliest sidewalk cafes.

-Singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega got her start at the Café, as did Eve Ensler's "Vagina Monologues". Senator & presidential candidate Eugene McCarthy & attorney-activist William Kunstler have read their poetry; Dr. Oliver Sacks continues to read his prose. Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann presents a monthly Science Series; members of Monty Python & the Royal Shakespeare Company intermittently perform.

-The Cornelia Street Café represents a long and excellent past with the jazz scene in New York City. One that extends from Sheila Jordan all the way to Paul Motian, and yet has plenty of room for up and coming artists who are redefining the modern vocabulary of what jazz improvisation is. It is this unique quality of providing a space which encourages the contemporary and new, while keeping any eye on the past, that truly sets the Café apart.


-Mathew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker went on their first date at The Café.

Leif Arntzen, trumpet; Ryan Blotnick, guitar; Michael Bates, bass; Miles Arntzen, drums
With influences ranging from Fela Kuti, Davis, Armstrong, Dorham, and Coltrane, Cash, even Riley, Glass, Leif's sound and music aspires to transcend. Leif made his deal at the cross roads as a child to play the horn, committed to creating his own sound and technique. His work in developing melody and rhythm, improvised arrangements, and group timbre is his nature, and his message is complete. Not many players play to his range, requiring solid jazz, folk, and classical fundamentals, all disciplines are welded to journey to and from the unknown. Ryan Blotnick and Michael Bates are just such capable players, and his son Miles Arntzen on drums completes the chemistry with rhythmic freedom and forward motion. At once classic and modern, the music is all encompassing, realizing, and free. There's nothing known quite like it, but instantly well-known when it finds the ear.
