BY THE VILLAGE SUN | It doesn’t look like La Bonbonniere is exactly kosher nowadays.
No, not because the Village restaurant, at Eighth Avenue and 12th Street, is flouting any religious dietary laws — but because of the sidewalk-spanning metal roof stretching to its roadway dining shed.
Not only that, but a tree and a bus-schedule pole both poke up through the quirky Quonset hut-like structure.
In 1943, “A Tree Grows in Brooklyn” was a hit novel about a young girl striving to make it.
In 2022, “A Tree Grows in La Bonbonniere,” well…describes what comes as a side with your pancakes at this favorite Village spot.
