Cafe Marlene, located on 49th Street (btw. Skillman Ave and 43rd Ave.), is expected to open Friday, according to contractors who were working at the cafe yesterday.
UPDATE: On Thursday, a friend of the owner said it would open Monday (see comment below).
The cafe is expected to be a wine/beer bar. In September, at the Community Board 2 meeting, it was noted that the owners had applied for a wine and beer license.
The cafe, although small on the ground level, has an expansive space downstairs.
