At Coppelia, pancakes come in two spins. There are buttermilk pancakes—light, fluffy, and painfully common elsewhere—and a blue corn version, the narwhal of pancakes in New York.

A Hundred Bite-Sized Spanish Sandwiches at 100 Montaditos

Fast Food International Krista Garcia 4 comments

From a distance, the tiled mosaic sign announcing 100 Montaditos in a vaguely Basque font and diners standing around the marble-topped bar could almost fool a passerby into thinking this isn't a typical West Village watering hole.

Neighborhood Guides Bao Ong Post a comment

Although Joe Dobias lives in the West Village, where there are plenty of trendy restaurants, the chef is all about mom-and-pop places.
