Greenwich Village And Its Best Draws To Eat – New York

Greenwich Village And Its Best Draws To Eat – New York

One of the main draws of Greenwich Village is the vast choice of intimate restaurants tucked along the picturesque streets. Here are a few favorites:

The Cornelia Street Café (29 Cornelia St, tel: 212-989-9319) is a busy, cozy, comforting Franco-American restaurant with a solid and affordable menu (duck confit with lentils, seafood stew) and a jazz and folk club downstairs.

Trendy gastro-pub The Spotted Pig (314 11th St, tel: 212-620-0393) is open late and always full. The $20 charbroiled burger with blue cheese is a favorite.

Pearl Oyster Bar (18 Cornelia St, tel: 212-691-8211) is a highly rated seafood restaurant and packs in crowds every night. The straightforward dishes (lobster rolls, scallops, and oysters) are simply prepared but incredibly fresh. No reservations.

Lupa (170 Thompson St, tel: 212-982-5089) is one of celebrity chef Mario Batali’s first NYC restaurants and is still a standout for its delicious rustic Italian fare and decor, great wine list and fun but noisy atmosphere. Lunch is a quieter experience.

Aki (181 W. 4th St, tel: 212-989-5440) is a hidden gem for sushi-lovers. The chef spent a few years working for the Japanese ambassador to Jamaica, and his top-notch creations are tinged with Caribbean flavors. It’s tiny here, so be sure to reserve in advance.

For one of the best falafels or Mediterranean platters (hummus, pita, cucumber salad) join the line-up at Taim (222 Waverly Place). Seating is limited, but you can always head a few blocks east to Washington Square and enjoy a picnic there.
