    Adam Platt: “The wine list is notably varied for a restaurant this size. I like the Don David Michel Torino ’07 Malbec.” Read more

    Looks casual. It isn't: those small plates taste big. You'll wantcharcuterie, cod fritters, pork belly, wine. S'mores to finish, ofcourse. Read more

    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

  • @A.G. Wine - iPhone/iPad

    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!

  • Bullfrog & Baum

    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.

    The smores dessert is a must-try. Kudos to pastry chef Christine Lee!

    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.

  • Jenn L.

    This one's easy. Get the cauliflower raviolo. You'll get a taste of pasta, mushrooms, veggies, and seafood in one bite!

    I would go back purely for the deconstructed smores dessert...a MUST!

    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!

    Meng H. · June 19, 2012

    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.

    Christine Z. · November 13, 2011
  • Andrew D.

    s'mores are legendary! Salt Cod fritters are also a must

    Andrew D. · October 14, 2011
  • Kate H.

    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

    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!

    Meryl C. · January 15, 2010
  • Mark H.

    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.

    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."

    The duck breast here is tender, plump and flavorful!

  • Erica B.

    Bit of an expensive foodie destination with not much to back it up. Won't be back but buffalo sweetbreads were quite deelish. Nothing much else to mention -_-

    Get the tasting menu, truly shows you the depth of the menu.

  • Valerie B.

    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.

    Valerie B. · July 1, 2012
  • Amanda B.

    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

    Amanda B. · June 11, 2012
  • Penn A.

    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

    Penn A. · May 30, 2012
  • Irina P.

    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.

    Irina P. · March 4, 2012
