Village Voice's Description

The owners of Joseph Leonard are expanding their West Village empire with this cozy food shop and luncheonette-style restaurant offering new twists on American classics. A raw bar includes the standard offerings like East and West Coast oysters, lobster, and shrimp cocktail, as well as more inventive fare like scallops tossed with Sichuan peppercorns and grapes. The food can occasionally be hit-or-miss, but standout dishes include braised lamb shank with polenta and pickled vegetables and a brisket sandwich with Muenster cheese and a finger-staining beet slaw. The "no reservations" policy and tiny space (the single communal table and the bar each seat about 12 diners), though, mean long waits.

Tips from foursquare

  • The New Yorker on 02/15/11

    The front of the vest-pocket space—a hybrid bodega, lunch counter, and raw bar—is stocked with groceries. In the back, a mere two dozen seats at the bar and around one communal table.

  • AskMen on 10/08/10

    The luncheonette plates a big time selection of American farmstead cheeses, charcuterie, salads + sammies. Drinks, meanwhile, range from New Mexican sparkling wine to a very American beer list.

  • Ghostly International on 06/20/11

    Stumptown Coffee for $1, can't be beat. If you come for brunch, try the Sausage, Egg, and Cheese biscuit. Full size sausage patty, moist biscuit.

  • Metromix on 10/26/10

    It's U.S.A. all-the-way at this raw bar/sandwich counter/gourmet food shop from Joseph Leonard owner Gabriel Stulman.

  • Village Voice on 11/14/11

    Winner of Best Doughnut Masquerading as a Cake in the Village Voice 2011 Best Of issue! The chocolate coffee cake is the best of both worlds.
