Village Voice's Description
Cozily inhabiting the former Savoy space on a quiet corner in Soho, this restaurant, owned by Peter Hoffman, follows local harvests to produce true, seasonal cooking. Chef Shauna Pacifico turns out generous and nourishing plates like a kale and escarole salad with the big leaves softened on the grill. The casual, walk-in atmosphere makes the space an equally comfortable setting for New Yorkers to sit down for a fried chicken lunch, as it does for tourists visiting nearby boutiques to pop in for a burger. The homey décor, especially upstairs where the walls hang with crooked illustrations, adds to the friendly vibe. Though the menu changes often, diners can usually expect the kitchen to produce delicious, thoughtful fare.
Tips from foursquare
The humble egg stars is revelatory in one of the restaurant's best entrees: An egg poached and then deep-fried, served open-faced with a celery salad and ramp mayo on a home-made English muffin.
The fried poached egg sandwich is insane. It's a poached egg. Somehow, fried, with the yolk still running. Boggles the mind.
Don't gloss over the specials when your server swings by, you most definitely do not want to miss out on the 24oz on-the-bone Cowboy Steak when it's available. #yolo
Sit upstairs & order the fireplace creme brûlée. They bring a red hot branding tool out of the fireplace and toast it with goodness. It tastes a s'more on top. It will change your life.
The rose lemonade is refreshing (and comes in a cool bottle)!
