A Fort Greene offshoot of the beloved Bed Stuy eatery Saraghina opened to the public Tuesday night, after some friends and family warmup over the weekend.

Inspired by turn-of-the-last-century cafes in Milan, where he was born, Saraghina founder (and former creative director of fashion firm Tocca) Edoardo Mantelli promised Saraghina Caffè would look like one of those essential cultural institutions, and it does.

There is a high wainscot of dark wood paneling throughout, tall white ceilings, an imposing bar with green marble top, a mid-century modern chandelier, and diamond-pattern black and white floors.
