Duck, Duck, Good at Decoy

Cuisine: | Featured in First Bite, Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant Spotting

RedFarm has been a fancified Chinese food fixture in the West Village for years now, beloved for owner Ed Schoenfeld, his famous charm & chef Joe Ng, maker of supremely delicate PacMan Dumplings. But over the last months, the restaurant’s undergone a flurry of change, including a swanky cocktail lounge and modern Peking Duck house called Decoy…

A Delicious Spin on the Classic Croque Monsieur

Cuisine: | Featured in Ethnic Eats

Is there any sandwich more classically French than the Croque Monsieur? The simple, yet oh-so-satisfying layered masterpiece of Gruyere (or Emmental), ham, and French bread fried in butter has been satiating hungry Parisians for just over a hundred years. Luckily for us New Yorkers, we only have to go as far as the West Village to find one of the best croques this side of the Atlantic…

Louro’s Nossa Mesa Supper Club

Cuisine: | Featured in Eating Events, Restaurant

After six straight nights of dinner service (and a double-header on Sunday, for brunch), you’d think that Louro’s Dave Santos would be all too eager to shut down the restaurant on Mondays. And yet, the chefs “day off” is undoubtedly one of his busiest, as he swaps out Louro’s modern Portuguese menu for a banquet well befitting the “Game of Thrones,” cast, say, or an Italian spread a la “The Sopranos…”

Q & A with Sotto 13′s Executive Chef Ed Cotton

Cuisine: | Featured in Chef Q&A

If you’re a Top Chef obsessive, it’s hard to chat with finalist Ed Cotton without eventually working the conversation around to his Season 7 flirtation with fellow cheftestant Tiffany, or if he still thinks that Alex stole his pea puree. But if you’ve been following his career since the show, it also seems a bit silly to dwell on his T.V stint for too long, because the unassuming, nose-to-the-grindstone chef is anything but a wannabe celebrity…

Q & A with The Clam’s Mike Price

Cuisine: | Featured in Chef Q&A

Mike Price is giving Clams their day so to speak. Price and co-owner Joey Campanaro just recently opened New York’s very first, clam-centric eatery in the West Village. But don’t even think about calling The Clam — a shellfish-centric restaurant recently opened by Market Table’s Mike Price & Joey Campanaro — a seafood shack. In theory, it may seem to have a lot in common with West Village neighbors, like Pearl Oyster Bar and Mary’s Fish Camp, but Price insists the only unifying factor between the three is a love of seafood…

Fatty ‘Cue

Cuisine: | Featured in Best Of

Fatty ‘Cue has a smoker and they’re not afraid to use it. Whether they’re cooking scallops, chicken, or beef brisket, almost everything on the menu is touched by the smoker. Even one of the cocktails gets the smoke bath treatment: the “Smokin’ Bone.”

The Clam – Reviewed

Cuisine: | Featured in Hottest Newcomers, Restaurant, Reviews

There’s nothing worse than a great, new neighborhood restaurant that opens in someone else’s neighborhood. That always happens to me. And it happened again just two weeks ago when The Clam quietly flung open its doors in the West Village (right near another great newcomer, Piora). They had me at a Parker House roll, individually baked for every diner, warm, pillowy & fresh from the oven welcome. If you had any doubts about what’s on the menu exactly, chowder’s muse is indeed the inspiration…

Restaurant Letdowns: Pagani & Villard

Cuisine: , | Featured in Reviews

If you’re a foodie, there’s nothing more exciting than discovering a great, new restaurant. And there’s nothing worse than wasting an evening at a mediocre or awful, new eatery, especially if you’ve dragged a group of friends along with you. Something about it being “new” makes it all the more depressing when hopes of a potentially fantastic find are dashed and calories wasted. But the truth is it happens all the time…

Q & A with Piora’s Chris Cipollone & Simon Kim

Cuisine: | Featured in Chef Q&A, Restaurant

There’s no shortage of restaurants serving fusion fare nowadays. Chinese-Mexican. Jewish-Japanese. French-Scandinavian. But Korean-Italian? That’s a new one, even for New York. “Our approach is simple… to cook and serve who we are,” said Simon Kim, owner of the exciting new West Village eatery, Piora. “We have two different heritages, Italian and Korean, so it was a natural process to marry our two cuisines.”
