    The space seats two to six people and features naked lady wallpaper, exposed brick, high ceilings, and a big chandelier. There's no chance you'll sit here as a walk-in, but you can reserve the room.

    A carbon-footprint-less cache of herb and vegetable dishes: try the frisée–and-fennel salad w/warm pork belly & apple or the Gin & Tonic wild salmon w/caramelized cauliflower & lime emulsion. Read more

    Oysters all night long! Delicious and $1 only. Love the vibe of this place, and West Village in general. Read some poems on the wall while you're at it :)

    Great spot for a glass of wine, or wine and appetizers. We went in around 5:30 and had no problem getting a table - but the bar area was already full, per usual.

    Every Tuesday, executive chef John Mooney serves a special entree of crispy soft-shell crab with basil and fennel — grown in his aeroponic rooftop garden — along with grapefruit and hazelnuts.

    Really good food menu, and happy hour oysters. However the cocktails are overprice (around $14). T all drinks are free and the technics used are not very modern (muddle old-fashioned)

    For a Halloween buzz, grab the Day of the Dead. Mezcal, dry vermouth, sweet vermouth and Mexican mole bitters make up this Manhattan. Shaved dark chocolate floats on top for an added treat. $14.

    Call well in advance to reserve the Naked Lady Room, a private dining room behind a fake wall. With space for up to 6 people, it features exposed brick, a big chandelier & naked lady wallpaper.

    Down a few steps resides this cozy yet spacious restaurant, where you'll dine on seasonal, local dishes like roasted chicken and the restaurant's signature burger.

    Seasonal and local cooking with an emphasis on good produce. We're big fans of the vegetarian French onion soup.

    Charming, cozy hideaway for a low-key cocktail or a quiet-ish dinner through the winter months. Great bartenders.

    On Valentines Day, ask for The Naked Lady Room, a sexy secret room behind a fake wall right off the bar in the main dining room. The secluded table seats 2-6 and features naked lady wallpaper.

    Cozy digs. Homemade buratta and the clams made excellent snacks. Order the salmon over charred cauliflower medium rare

    Best grilled cheese I've ever had in my life, and I've had my FAIR share of grilled cheeses. I would eat here every week if I was closer.

    Try to snag the back (and fairly well hidden) room if it's available if you have a small group of friends.

    Recommended by my friend Sophia R., who lives in the neighborhood and would certainly know. She says "It's the only place in the Village that hasn't been discovered yet."

    Do try their bean dip (add the chorizo of course!) $1 oysters and cocktails are a must here!

    Fun place. Comfortable booths for groups of various sizes. A bit loud, but pretty tasty and overall pretty good.

    Delicious meal. Try the pop corn panna cotta for dessert. Sounds a little strange, but its perfect. Light and not too sweet.

    House white is pretty good but the standout is the moscato. Not too sweet but not too dry.

    Ask for the private room. It will give remedy the volume at the bar. It's also very cozy.

    They have a basil watermelon cocktail that's delicious. Prefer it for drinks. Dinner was good but the drinks are better.
