Business of the Month: La Bonbonniere
When we selected La Bonbonniere as our most recent Business of the Month, you approved! We knew we hit the target when you raved about how much you love the little diner with a big heart on Eighth Avenue. Find out "what develops when you run a small business 365 days a year, for 24 years, and love your customers as much as they love you. Marina and her business partner Gus Maroulletis are the proprietors of La Bonbonniere, the diner on Eighth Avenue that welcomes all kinds, from kids to construction workers to actors to writers."

Now tell us another independent business in the Village, East Village or NoHo that you love just as much!
With GVSHP's new "Business of the Month" program, each month, a local, independent business is featured on GVSHP's website and blog Off the Grid, and shared via our e-bulletins, showcasing one of our neighborhoods' great and unique retail or commercial treasures. The program underscores what makes each business so valued and distinctive, and we hope will increase support and patronage, thus aiding our local small businesses' health and viability.
We're asking you, the public, to nominate your favorite businesses for consideration for our "Business of the Month." To nominate a business just fill in a very brief form here.
Local businesses are the backbone of our neighborhoods, and many find themselves in an increasingly tough environment of rising rents and proliferating chain stores. GVSHP is committed to highlighting and celebrating those businesses that help keep our neighborhoods unique and special, and provide a service, atmosphere, or specialty that can't be found anywhere else.
In December, the delectable Sullivan Street Tea & Spice Company in the South Village was featured, and we kicked off in November with Makari, an under-the-radar gem of Asian arts in the East Village.
