    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 :)

    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.

    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."

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

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