A new location of crperie Le Gamin debuted for a "super soft opening" Saturday, according to a hand-lettered sign in the window. The dining room was ready, but not the kitchen. "We brought our food truck," explained owner Cathy Palm. That's just a temporary fix: The kitchen will be functional by Wednesday. The "full bistro menu," with items like steak-frites and moules-frites, differs slightly from Le Gamin's Prospect Heights location. Palm is pursuing a full liquor license, but it's BYOB in the meantime. An employee and several former customers from Prospect Heights encouraged Palm to open in Greenpoint. "I guess there are a lot of bars but not that many eateries," she said. "Greenpoint is really cool, and every cool neighborhood has nice cafs."
