- with Eu-Gene Sung, Chief Financial Officer
1. Via Carota - Long lines but worth the wait. Every dish is outstanding.
2. Pearl Oyster Bar - in typical West Village style, no reservations so lines can be long. For me, this is the original lobster roll in NYC (that may or may not actually be true).
3. Po - my husband and I often grab seats at the bar on a Saturday night and tuck into one of their fantastic pastas.
4. Joseph Leonard - amazing breakfast. Enough said.
5. Taim - great falafels to eat as you wander around the amazing West Village.
6. Rafele - totally random and very under the radar, but great food. My son loves their vongole pasta.
7. DomoDomo - delicious handroll spot on Houston, which is probably technically not the West Village.
8. Blue Ribbon Bakery: for me, there is only one Blue Ribbon worth writing about. They have an outstanding weekend- only brunch, which should involve poached eggs. Sadly, it’s closing in November, so hurry! The related bar across the street is also one of our faves (probably because we live down the street).
9. The Clam - casual, but great food.
10. Hudson Clearwater - great garden in the summer that makes you forget you’re in New York.
