New York, NY 10014
Village Voice's Description
Set up in the old Shopsin's space, this small restaurant with attached market is so precious and calculating, you might as well be dining in a movie set. The market sells an assortment of goods designed to be charmingly eclectic;Domino's sugar, quick-cook grits and wooden bins of apples next to pole-caught canned tuna and LaFrieda burgers (of Shake Shack fame). One wall of the dining room serves as a chalkboard, on which are written the day's cheese and charcuterie selections;the Salumeria Biellese salami is an excellent move. The rest of the food is skillful but unexciting: a prettily composed Niccoise salad, a tasty but scanty eggplant Parmesan.
Tips from foursquare
In her NY Diet, funny girl Jenny Slate raves about the beet salad with goat cheese fritters here.
Definitely make a reservation at this European style West Village spot. We recommend the pan roasted chicken and the braised short ribs, yum.
get the gnocchi to start. melts in your mouth.
First time I had skate wing. Now I only want to eat skate wing served here.
