13 Great Breakfasts in the West Village

Linnea Zielinski 4 comments

The West Village is one of New York's more receptive neighborhoods to lingering breakfasts, from busy coffee shops to lazy cafes, no shortage of all-day bistros and a wealth of bakeries. So where do we go to start the day while we're there? That depends on the mood: doughnut or croissant, French scrambled eggs or Cuban heuvos rancheros? More

Obsessed With: OatMeals, the World's First All-Oatmeal Bar

Breakfast Erin Zimmer 17 comments

When I heard about the grand opening last month of OatMeals, the world's first oatmeal bar, I was equal parts jealous (idea stealer!) and uncontrollably delighted. More

A Sandwich a Day: Baked Salmon Pita at Taboonette

A Sandwich a Day Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At Taboonette, the newly opened offshoot of Taboon in Hell's Kitchen, pita sandwiches are the focus of the menu. There are classic kebabs and chicken shawarma, but I'm partial to Baked Salmon ($8.75), a filling number that still manages to be light and fresh. More

Sugar Rush: The Hot Chocolates of Amorino Gelato

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

At Amorino Gelato on University Place you'll find not one, but ten different types of hot chocolate on the menu. My personal favorite? The Hazelnut. More

Sugar Rush: Ekmek Kataifi at Village Taverna

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan 2 comments

It's not the most attractive of desserts, especially with that candy red cherry on top. But push aside appearances, and this Ekmek Kataifi at the relatively new Village Taverna is surprisingly good. More

Sugar Rush: Spiced Caramel Panna Cotta at Otto

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At Otto there's always one dessert on the menu that isn't primarily gelato-based (though there will always be a gelato or sorbet component!). I dropped in over the weekend and was delighted to find Spiced Caramel Panna Cotta ($8) as one of the current fall offerings. More

Sugar Rush: Fig Mousse Cake at Gotham Bar and Grill

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

The current seasonal special is a Fig Mousse Cake. It's pure in flavor, light and borderline foamy, topped with matching gelée. It rests on a thin cake layer that bears an uncanny resemblance to the much-loved Chinese sponge cakes. More

Fantastic Croissants, Sandwiches, and More at Mille-Feuille

The Serious Eats Team 4 comments

We loved the croissants at Mille-feuille Bakery Café when they first opened, but the more we go back, the more we're convinced this little café is truly special. More

Sugar Rush: Almond Butter Financiers at The Adore

Street Food Kathy YL Chan 2 comments

The Adore has been around for awhile, and those familiar with this tiny French-Japanese tea salon/cafe/lunch spot tend to be loyal, myself included. All breakfast pastries and sweets are made in-house, and it's one of the few places in this city that offers a wide selection of Mariage Frerès tea. More

Date Night: El Charro Español

Date Night Jessica Allen and Garrett Ziegler 1 comment

By all accounts El Charro serves a mean sangria and snappy margarita. We're less sure about the nachos, on the menu, perhaps, to please the kids; and the music, a mildly disconcerting medley of Three Doors Down and Stevie Nicks. But the vivid cooking and utter lack of trendiness have their own charms. El Charro is best for: a date to el país viejo. More

Lunch To-Go: Fredi Sandwich Bar

Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

It only takes one visit to learn that the bulk of the business at Fredi Sandwich Bar is take-out orders and deliveries. More

Lunch To-Go: Vegetable Sides at Otto

Kathy YL Chan 3 comments

While I would feel awkward going into Otto to have just vegetable side dishes ($5 each) as my entree, I've been doing this as part of my takeout meals for years. Known primarily for pasta and pizza, Otto is really best for their vegetable sides—one of my favorite parts (excluding gelato) of the menu. More

Lunch for One: Green Noodles at Galanga

Lunch for One Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

The waitress described Galanga's Green Noodle ($10) dish with the words, "Asian pesto." And that comes fairly close to summing up this warm dish of sauteed wide, flat rice noodles. More

Kids Welcome: Mermaid Oyster Bar

Kids Welcome Aya Tanaka 1 comment

With a chic seaside shack decor, a hopping happy hour, and very high decibels, the Oyster Bar is a vibrant restaurant that pleases both parents and children with a wide selection of oysters and an appetizing variety of hot dishes. More

Brunch at Minetta Tavern: Your Way In The Door

Ed Levine 7 comments

Minetta Tavern is one of those restaurants that is virtually impossible to get into for dinner at a regular time—unless you're a regular yourself, or you're close with someone who is. That's a real shame, because it is in fact one of the better restaurants in New York. But at brunch? Even a layperson can call and score a reservation for six on a weekend. No problems, no hassle, no nothing. Here's your opening; take it and run. More

TGI Fry-Day: Fries at Minetta Tavern

TGI Fry-Day Carey Jones 1 comment

Who doesn't love french fries? We've long been looking for New York's best, and decided that the city's fries deserved more than a post—they needed a column of their own. Here's TGI Fry-Day, your weekly dose of deliciousness. Got a... More

Hit and Miss Pizza at Olio Pizza e Più & Zigolini's Pizza Bar

Adam Kuban 18 comments

Pizza in New York CIty is—and has been—having not just a moment but an era. With more than a handful of new pizza joints having opened in the last couple of months (and even more set to open in the next few weeks), our man Ed Levine, who's off SENY review duty this week, sent me out to a couple of the more promising-looking pizzerias to report back.

Lunch for One: Penne with Spicy Cauliflower at Otto

Lunch for One Kathy YL Chan 4 comments

[Photo: Kathy YL Chan] Otto is a madhouse in the evening, but come lunch, it's a peaceful respite from the city. Pull up at one of the bar seats. A glass of prosecco, perhaps? And pasta, of course. All... More
