Café Bonsaii is a new café in NYC located on the first floor of the Concorde Hotel New York. In the morning, you can find coffee and light fare. In the evening, the cozy café transforms into a chic NYC wine and tapas bar.
Who we are
Café Bonsaii was a concept that blossomed from the minds of two young, aspiring restauranteurs. Although Kevin Cardenas and Rueben Cabrera already had an overwhelming following from their initial venture, Cerviche Fusion, they wanted to find success in NYC. An opportunity arose and born, was this intimate and inviting venue for all to experience.
The Bonsai Tree is a miniature tree cultivated to resemble nature in a modest space. The tree is carefully nurtured through human, artistic interaction. Café Bonsaji is the ultimate representation of its namesake.
The Bonsaii Café likes to put its own spin on new classics. In addition to flavors borrowed from our far eastern neighbors, we include a plethora of traditional Spanish flavors. Choose from Ceviche Aguachile or Guacamole, both served with plantain chips, or indulge in a Baked Chicken Empanada. Goat Cheese Bruschetta, Chicken Skewers, and the ever-popular Truffle Burrata are sure to be crowd (or date) pleasers.
If you aren’t sure of the best wine or sake pairing for your tapas choice, our knowledgeable staff are always available to make a recommendation to suit your tastes.

The palates of flavor tell a story of cultural fusion and a passion for cuisine that can only be described as exceptional.
