Village Voice's Description
Cafe Cluny began life as an upscale comfort-food restaurant, located in the most charming part of the West Village. The menu included thick burgers with great fries, a roast chicken with all the trimmings, steaks, and, perhaps most famously, a pork loin wrapped in pancetta. But then chef Philip Kirschen-Clark stepped in, a veteran of the farm-to-table scene famous for his picklings and improvised dishes at Jimmy's No. 43, and then for his Dutch-Scandinavian food at the now-defunct Vandaag. Keeping the old favorites from the Cluny menu, he spruced up the offerings with a sort of evolved haute-cuisine, featuring artichokes barigoule, for example, updated with winter vegetables and miso, instead of mushrooms, and a carrot salad that mixes fresh and pickled specimens, topped with grated foie gras that melts as it sits before you. The asparagus risotto and cavatelli in lobster bisque also demonstrate his approach. The pair of dining rooms are ancient, and plastered with zoological specimens that might have been copped from the Museum of Natural History. --Robert Sietsema
