Bistro for American fare with a twist
Mediterranean · West Village · $$
The Zagat Review
“Simple but delicious” American fare gets a “modern” and often “Mediterranean spin” at these “well-priced” bistros, making them a “pretty-people” favorite; they’re especially “sceney” at brunch ( “if you can get in, you've made it in life” ) when the “cozy” digs fill up fast.

Two words: simple and delicious. We ordered zucchini fries, roasted cauliflower with white sauce, and matzo ball soup for appetizers. For the main dish, my sister went for their signature dish - Peri Peri Chicken, which reminded me of a Peruvian dish (especially with their green spicy sauce). I ordered Fish a la Plancha (Salmon), and I loved it. It’s sesame coated skin gave it a nice flavor twist. We finished with the homemade cheesecake. Wanted to thank the manager and waiters for keeping up a great job keeping everyone in the room feeling happy and satisfied!

Lively and light. The food was great and service was quick and friendly. I came expecting a 30-minute wait, and it was only 15. Our party each ordered different items, and we all liked what we got. It is noisy so don't come to have quiet conversations.

Wow this place gets crazy packed! It’s a great brunch/breakfast spot, but I’d say it’s a tad bit to overhyped. For one the dishes are quite small, which one can debate as a healthier option but others might not appreciate. Second, there is no genuine desire to please the client rather more of a eat and get out attitude. Lastly, everyone who knows this area has visited this spot at least once. I think it’s worth considering other options because although the food is good, it almost seems like a highly marketed portrayal of just a decent food scene.
