    Awesome spot for brunch! Start with the Bloody Mary (with fried pork belly and rock shrimp) or the individual French press coffe and end with their very yummy spin on… (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    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.

    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.

    Little, cozy, chic and with a menu so good that you would like to try it all. I went for brunch and had French toasts. I would come back just for them. Delish:)

    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!

    Get pre fixe menu and make sure you get different dishes. That way you can share and experience every bite. Get all extras on the menu. Caviar is good quality, but too expensive for small amount.

    The PB&J French toast must be tried but great for sharing at the table, otherwise it will put you in a coma. Everyone talks about the smores dessert but we didn't make it that far.

    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."

    Good for a splurge. Get bone marrow toast, duck breast with spring bean cassoulet, and Christina Lee's take on the s'more—graham cracker ice cream, toasted marshmallow, peppery "hot" chocolate ganache

    stellar service with plates to match, cod fritters & pulled pork are a must to start, your challenge is deciding on mains: sweetbreads (yum!), pork belly, venison & duck breast - all good, what a gem!

    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.

    Wait staff is really nice and excellent at arranging wine pairings. Seared fois gras, rabbit pot pie, tuna, and s'mores all fabulous. Great place.

    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.

    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.

    You can get one of our fav tasting menus here (five or seven courses) and this re-invented French spot is also one of the year’s best restaurants from Where to Eat 2011! Read more

    From the short, but diverse, brunch menu, try the dish of perfectly cooked sunny-side-up eggs with a tangy green salad, potatoes cooked in duck fat and three strips of bacon. Read more

    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

    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 there (i.e. book) after 9:30pm when the restaurant gets less crowded, otherwise it can be noisy. Great service!

    The bone marrow toast was not what I thought, but combined with roe it was beyond my imagination.

    Definitely go for the pork belly & s'mores dessert. If you want. Lighter starter, the arugula salad is killer.
