    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

  • The Wall Street Journal

    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

  • Approach Guides

    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!

    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

    Jason Koxvold · December 2, 2010
  • Jenn A.

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

  • HipHostessNYC

    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.

    HipHostessNYC · July 1, 2012

    Try the PB&J pain perdu!

    Meng He · June 19, 2012
  • Branzino B.

    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.

    Branzino Bandini · June 13, 2012

    Mondays with Jesse series is the best!

    Scallops are mind blowing. S'mores are a no- brainer. My favorite place to eat in NYC.

    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

  • Meryl C.

    Do not miss the Razor Clams and the Fluke. Also - make sure Young helps you with your wine choices. Spot on!

    Meryl Cooper · January 15, 2010
  • Javier M.

    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:)

    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.

    Angela Fetters · October 25, 2014
  • Erika P.

    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.

    Erika Pontes · September 24, 2014
  • @JaumePrimero

    The bone marrow toast was magic. Period.

    @JaumePrimero · August 22, 2014

    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.
