A great little restaurant tucked between Greenwich Village and SoHo. The staff were fun and knew their menu and the food was lovely. Unknown to us the restaurant is in the "Friends" building so it was fun watching a procession of tourists rolling up outside...More

I wandered in here for brunch with some friends and I was pleasantly surprised. I ordered the chilaquiles and they were some of the best I've ever had. One of my friends ordered avocado toast, and the other had eggplant parmesian. They loved their food...More

Stumbled upon this place whilst wandering in a lovely relaxed part of New York, a crowd outside taking pictures of what turned out to be an apartment block used in scenes of Friends (which I have never watched!) Anyway, we booked to return for lunch...More

If you are looking for an early breakfast, this is not your place, otherwise they have a good variety of dishes, tasty food and good environment.

It's perfect for us. After going to several incredibly sophisticated dinners in high end restaurants, it was a delight to feel like we were dining in a good friend's home. Our meal was delicious, the wine list well rounded, and the service - so completely...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

If you have a reservation, I assume you could have appetizers and a drink, then leave promptly so someone else could be accommodated. There are good appetizers and it is not necessary to eat a ton of food. There seems to be... More
