For a nice white wine (and a great value), opt for Domaine Mardon's Quincy; this Loire Valley appellation produces rounder, mineral-driven versions of sauvignon blanc; 2009's good vintage. Enjoy!
One of Sifton's favorites of 2010 this small spot had a huge year. Jesse Schenker's is menu is always changing but some staples are the Salt Cod Fritters and the Berkshire Pork Belly.
Try the Roasted Scallops
The smores dessert is a must-try. Kudos to pastry chef Christine Lee!
Try out the waterbed.
I would go back purely for the deconstructed smores dessert...a MUST!
Get there (i.e. book) after 9:30pm when the restaurant gets less crowded, otherwise it can be noisy. Great service!
New favorite. Try everything.
For brunch menu, scallop salad and the sweet pea soup with foie gras is amazing. For wine, there's a $60 Chardonnay that's great
Get the fuck out of here before they fat you
This one's easy. Get the cauliflower raviolo. You'll get a taste of pasta, mushrooms, veggies, and seafood in one bite!
Quintessential West Village spot. The spicy sweetbreads satisfy, as does the scallops and lobster risotto. The special Caipirinha made with apple/beet juice and fresh ginger, fantastic.
Try the PB&J pain perdu!
PB&J pain perdu. The chef's pillowy treat features a three-inch-thick wedge of Sullivan Street brioche stuffed with a swirl of creamy peanut butter and grape jam. $12.
Mondays with Jesse series is the best!
Scallops are mind blowing. S'mores are a no- brainer. My favorite place to eat in NYC.
s'mores are legendary! Salt Cod fritters are also a must
tasting menu is the way to do it here!
Try the Berkshire Pork Belly
Amazing food wonderful ambiance. Try the halibut, branzino and cheeses. Ask for jess to be your waitress. She's great. NYT write up last week. Stroll through the village to walk off the calories
Do not miss the Razor Clams and the Fluke. Also - make sure Young helps you with your wine choices. Spot on!
Well plated dishes, open kitchen, small portions - cooked just right. Share some plates and get a bottle of wine from their surprisingly well stocked selection.
Sunday Supper Series - Guests can choose four courses from the menu for $40
The chorizo and grits is my go-to brunch in the West Village.
Quintessential spot in the West Village for a date...and Jesse's menu never let's you down.
I love recette. Intimate, easy reservation to get, tasty plates.
My favorite place in NYC!
Cod fritters, branzino and beef cheek we're delicious! But if ordering a la carte one starter and one main is more than enough even though they recommend 3-4 dishes.
The bone marrow toast was magic. Period.
Good brunch! Pulled pork with egg and cornbread was a standout
Incredibly delicious small plates place. Can't go wrong with the 5 course tasting menu! They will adjust to your tastes or just surprise you.
Got ill from the food...
S'mores on the dessert menu = best $8 you will ever spend. The spaghetti special w truffles was super too. But get the S'mores. Make love to them.
Love the vibe here and if you get Cal as your server you're in luck!
Mondays with Jesse are absolutely amazing and should not be missed.
Try the duck it is delicious !
Food is awesome, service is atrocious.
Get the tasting menu! They accommodate most restrictions!
The chef's tasting menus are the best! Do not miss the foie gras!!
Try the Pumpkin Espuma - #light and #pumpkiny with perfect scallops
A Parisian inspired Thanksgiving meal is on the menu including pumpkin espuma with bay scallops, pear, roasted sablefish with chicken dumplings & turkey roulade with chestnut and cranberries.
Grub Street off-menu dish: Foie-and-Langoustine Wellington. "Instead of beef Wellington, the staff swaps in langoustine & fatty goose liver into a tiny puff pastry shell w a Japanese red curry sauce."
