    A historic West Village space beautifully made over; go for some of the best cocktails in the Village, or for Montreal-born chef Mehdi Brunet-Benkritly's insanely delicious, slightly oddball menu.

    Although the menu includes many lighter options, Fedora is really the place to go when you want to indulge a bit. Every night here feels like a party, and the kitchen is open late. Read more

    Drinks are excellent, with kitschy "golden TV era" names like "Orange is the new House of Cards" and "Carcosa" (if you get this ilu). Sea scallops, squid, butternut squash pot de creme are excellent.

    Being across the street, this place is our living room extension. Get the corner booth and try the mushroom/egg app and either the chicken or wagyu steak with the house Pinot Noir. Perfect.

    Fun twist on traditional dishes. The brussels sprouts are to die for and the razor clams are pretty amazing as well. Great place to take out of town guests. Small, intimate, & NY at its finest

    Hook's cheddar poppers: oblong croquettes filled with cheddar from Wisconsin. The molten cheese finds its foil in a duo of sauces: one tomato-based, the other with smoky cream.

    Try the Snoop Lion or the Black Squirrel Old Fashioned. Interesting cocktail list. Cool vibe, mix of people: Wall St., locals, hipsters, et al.

    Friendly bartenders, cozy atmosphere & good food. Can't go wrong with the "Classics" for din. Def recommend the shiitake & oyster mushrooms. The banana pudding was also delish.

    You can't just come in for a drink when they're seating for dinner at the bar and its crazy crowded on the weekends. Point being don't come if you're not eating or on the weekends. Otherwise lovely.

    For a large party (8+ people), you can book this wonderful room in the basement. Exposed brick, rustic wooden table with an intimate atmosphere (am I turning you on?). The dishes do not disappoint.

    Fantastic cocktails. Dill + Gin, something about my "baby", and Jason Collins. Highly, highly recommend. Plus the bartender is a cocktail artist and chill. Go and be impressed.

    Yum! We loved the ricotta gnocchi with chicken meatballs and the crispy shrimp appetizers! The Brussels sprouts are also delightful. Can't go wrong with any of the entrees.

    They have a private dining area in the basement/wine cellar where you can access by walking through the kitchen. Amazing food/great service

    The fried chicken was really something worth trying. Go early (before 7:30pm) the noise level to have a conversation becomes impossible after that.

    Very well executed cocktails including riffs on classics. Gets busy but there is a bench thing big enough for 2 if the bar is full by the kitchen

    All around great. Every dish was solid. Beef tartare, and chanterelle and shiitake with poached egg appetizer are incredible. (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    One of the best in the village. If you can't get a table, grab a seat at the bar.

    Excellent, creative food with distinct flavors and a lot of character. Friendly staff. Great cocktails. Small portions on the food though.

    Love Medhi Brunet-Benkritly's menu... the cod fritters, scallops and creamed cauliflower were all exceptionally savory. Plus, they have a whimsical drink menu

    Quintessential West Village, dark and cozy. The specialty cocktails are awesome and the food is great. Try the brussel sprouts!

    The new management will give it a rejiggering, complete with a bar menu of house-infused spirits and syrups, and grub by Medhi Brunet-Benkritly.

    Fantastic staff, great drinks and awesome food! The mushroom app was unreal and their ice box cake for dessert was delish!

    Great cocktail list. Steak tartare is a perfect starter. Even though the chef worked at Au Pied de cochon, don't over the fish dishes.

    Don't Forget the Flowers: Milagro Blanco tequila shaken with lime and St. Germain, with grapefruit bitters and hum hibiscus liqueur.

    Cocktails are all solid. The hamachi tartare is off the hook. And so is the key lime pie. #jsdb
