Description

Village Voice's Description

In the contemporary style of such places, the Lion acts as if it doesn"t want you to eat there, and reservations in the lovely rear room are made available only at the most absurd times. Chances are, you"ll be seated in the area between bar and street, where the smell of the effluvia blowing into the subterranean windows is particularly foul. The menu--via former Waverly Inn chef John DeLucie--is a mixed bag: the excellent asparagus salad, for example, features white and greens spears with mushrooms and a wobbly egg that provides sauce, while the lobster pot pie is a soupy mess without much lobster. The noise level tends to be deafening.

Tips from foursquare

  • This West Village hot spot wanted ivy creeping up its 1839 facade, so they installed fake ivy made of silk. But the Landmarks Preservation Commission ordered it taken down.

    A favorite for private soirees, this 2-story Village den will feel like you've made a discovery — until you spot Ashton and Demi sitting among the leather couches and weathered picture frames.

  • The New York Times on 07/27/10

    You made it in! Order a big drink and a burger, some extra fries, something with an egg. Now, who’s here we recognize from Page Six?

  • BLOUIN ARTINFO on 07/09/10

    After ordering the infamous lobster pot pie or their signature burger with fried pork belly at this A-list hangout, make sure you gaze over at the Basquiat and the LaChapelle on the wall.

  • Juicy Couture on 08/13/10

    Yes, the food is great but what we like even more to get at The Lion is a photo with a celebrity. Talk about paparazzi central, The Lion is one of the biggest celebrity hot spots in New York City. Loo
