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

NYC's Best Ice Cream Neighborhood: A West Village Ice Cream Crawl

Carey Jones 8 comments

We have a working theory at Serious Eats that the West Village is the best single neighborhood in New York for ice cream and gelato. Between the phenomenal gelaterie Grom and L'Arte, the crazy goat's milk soft-serve at Victory Garden, and unbelievable ice cream, gelato, and soft-serve on restaurants' dessert menus, the West Village would be our choice for an ice cream crawl that covers barely more than a few blocks—but gets you some of the best frozen treats in the city.

Breakfast at Buvette

Breakfast Carey Jones 3 comments

At night, Buvette in the West Village is often packed to capacity, diners shoulder-to-shoulder as they sip wine and nibble. But in the mornings, it's pleasantly sedate, smelling of coffee and toasting bread, morning light streaming in. And, it should go without saying, the food is fantastic. I live in Brooklyn and work in Chinatown. There's no reason in the world I should be passing through the West Village in the mornings. But I do, time and again, for breakfast at Buvette. More

Sugar Rush Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

There are two main desserts on the menu at Buvette: a killer chocolate mousse and reliable tarte tatin. Those stay regardless of the season, while other sweet specials come and go. On the best days, ice cream is available. It's made in-house and, when it's available, a must-order. More

5 Cream-Topped Sweets We Love

Kathy YL Chan 1 comment

Who doesn't like cream? Freshly whipped, thick and barely sweetened is how I prefer it, whether it's topping off a lush banana cream pie at Blue Smoke Bake Shop or served atop the chocolate mousse from Buvette. But it's excellent in all forms, including at Otto, where you get straight-up cream in the form of the Huckleberry-Mascarpone Cream Gelato. Break out the spoons! More

Lunch for One Kathy YL Chan 3 comments

Escarole is one of my favorite types of greens to use at home when preparing a salad. And for this reason, I tend to keep a sharp eye out for escarole salads in restaurants to pick up ideas and inspirations. Two places in particular have versions so good that I return for them time after time. More

Buvette in the West Village: Jody Williams Does French (Well)

The Serious Eats Team 6 comments

Not quite a wine bar, not quite an appetizer-and-entree restaurant, the new Buvette in the West Village calls itself a gastroteque—a French-styled establishment where small plates dominate the menu and wines are marked by provenance on the chalk map of Europe scrawled over one wall. Classy but determinedly casual, structured for drop-in dining and drinking, it's well-suited to its neighborhood. And there's fine food to be found, too. More
