Village Voice's Description
Chef Jason Neroni's latest adventure is a staid Village bistro with wonderful views of Sixth Avenue and interesting art on the walls (plus a newly opened sidewalk seating area). Despite the eclectic menu, his interest in pork and Spanish food prevails. Baked feta is the best bar snack; striped bass the best fish (sided with oddball items like seckle pear, celeriac, and trumpet mushrooms); squid-ink agnolotti the best pasta; and pork confit with moustarda the best meat main (no surprise here). For dating couples, the roast chicken for two, deposited on a lively bread salad the way they do it in San Francisco at Zuni Café, is highly recommended.
Tips from foursquare
This is a terrific restaurant, worth a visit. The service is a little spotty, the atmosphere is quite nice, and the food is good.
have the uovo ravioli w prosciutto and favas. amazing.
The bar is a perfect place to park yourself for a quick drink before the main event, and the outside tables are a nice warm-weather respite from the noisy dining room.
try the food
The French toast is ridiculous! Go for it if you like sweet things.
