Chef Mike Isabella opened Kapnos along the Fourteenth Street Corridor in July 2013. Isabella draws inspiration from Northern Greece to create a menu of spreads, breads, vegetables and other small plates, including his signature wood-grilled octopus. Two wood-fire grills with rotating spits and a large oven for stone-baked flat breads service the 160-seat restaurant. Guests enjoy carvings from whole animals that have been spit-roasted all day, including lamb, goat, duck, chicken, and suckling pig. Kapnos is open for dinner seven nights a week.

"I really like the setup of Kapnos: you choose a series of mezzes which allows for sharing and a convivial atmosphere. We were recommended by our server, Omar, who was fantastic, by the way, to order 2-3 mezzes per person. We ordered 5 for two people and this was the right amount. We started with pikilia, or a sampling of three spreads. I'd recommend the eggplant one, but skip the lentil one. For cold mezzes, I had the tuna tartare, but it's not very inventive and lacked flavor or salt. For garden mezzes, get the horta, which is based in Swiss chard and kale. For ocean, absolutely get the octopus as it was really amazing. And finally for wood-roasted mezzes, the spiced baby goat was crispy and flavorful and delicious. Highlight of the meal was our server, who was friendly, helpful, approachable and gave perfect recommendations including the wine pairing."

"I dined here on a visit to DC. With the imprimatur of Michel Richard, I expected nouvelle cuisine and high end dining. Instead, it's much more bistro casual, so keep that in mind if you are caught off guard by the restaurant name.
Our server was excellent in providing recommendations as well as being helpful on portion size. As an example I ordered the lobster burger (I recommend this as it's more lobster and firmer than you normally get in restaurants) and my partner ordered the fried chicken, the house specialty. Both are healthy portions, so we were recommended to split a salad, which was the perfect idea. I recommend the frisée salad.
Overall, good experience, I just had more that I expected due to the Michel Richard name."

Drew Nieporent’s long commitment to Tribeca continues in the space that housed the legendary Montrachet and Corton. Chef/partner Markus Glocker’s modern European menu reflects his Austrian heritage and diverse experiences (Gordon Ramsay, Charlie Trotter). Dishes like Octopus “Pastrami,” Roasted Beets Linzer and Veal Tenderloin “Tramezzini” are inventive and delicious. Diners may order two ($55), three ($69) or four courses ($79) - fixed prices that represent excellent value. <br /> <br />Managing partner John Winterman, former longtime maître d’ at Daniel, welcomes you to a relaxed setting warmed by golden light and cozy banquettes. The wine list highlights the best of Burgundy; cocktails are expertly crafted.<br />

"My partner and I celebrated our 15th anniversary dinner at Bâtard. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted and made to feel special. The menu is a 2-, 3- or 4- course set menu and you can virtually customize the way you want. However, the portions don't get smaller the higher the set menu amount. I ordered two small apps and one entree and still had room for the cheese cart.
The highlight was that the restaurant brought our dessert with a candle and wished us a happy anniversary. And the ONLY communication about this was a note I wrote in the opentable reservation - no other live conversation took place!"

"I dined here before the Met on what happened to be Valentine's Day. Overall, I rated my experience average due to the extra steps required just to have a meal here and the average experience once here.
First, you were required to provide your credit card on opentable to book the reservation. Second, you were required to call back the restaurant with an email address. Third, you were required to respond to an email agreeing to pay charges for a no show for the night. Which the credit card would have been used to charge in step 1.
Find the evening in question, we were seated near the server station, and had the joy of experiencing chaos and questions about the servers' coordination at different tables. "Table 22 doesn't want dessert yet." Really? And all for the pleasure of an $80 prix fixe menu and to be rushed out before the next seating."

"I had an amazing experience on a recent Friday night in January. And actually, most, if not all, of the experience was related to our wonderful server, Jennifer. She was knowledgable, friendly, helpful and really cared about our table. Plus our recommendations for wine pairings were perfect. I had steak frites, which was cooked to perfection. Will definitely be back."

Blenheim is an enticing new restaurant in the West Village highlighting ingredients sourced from owners Morten Sohlberg and Min Ye’s proprietary 150-acre farm in the Catskill Mountains. The restaurant is a canvas for the property’s vegetables, fruits, meats, dairy, and even maple syrup. A curated wine list showcases organic, biodynamic, and natural wines and artisanal cocktails will utilize farm ingredients to pair with the flavor profiles of the menu. Inspired by a world away from the bustle of New York City, this 45 seat eatery with modern lines give a departure from the traditional farm-to-table look, juxtaposed against vintage and antique décor. We look forward to welcoming you to Blenheim.

"Do you know when you walk into a restaurant and you have an amazingly special experience, that you feel like you just discovered it and it's your new go to place? That is Blenheim for me.
It's charming, the service is top notch and better than it needs to be and top food is outstanding.
To start, I had braised chicken tacos with celery root and egg. Four to an order, so delicate (I think the celery root is the taco shell) and delicious. It's listed under canapés but it's filling enough as a starter. For my entree, I had Icelandic lamb with sun chokes. Braised to perfection, so tender.
The restaurant took over the space that used to be Smorgas Chef in the West Village. The space is perfect to have an intimate evening. Come here for a relaxed, romantic dinner. Come back again and again!"

"The view here is spectacular, especially from the bar area where you see the Empire State Building up close and from a vantage point you'd never seen.
The food is great, too. Bimbimbop is some of the best I've had. Ask for the egg on top. For a table of four, you can order two large appetizers and that's sufficient for the food quantity.
The wine list by the bottle is overpriced, but I found a great Shiraz for $59 that my friends raved about. The was a deal vs three other Shiraz's, one above $200 and another above $400."

"You go here because of the food, obviously catering to vegans/vegetarians, but healthy cooking for everyone. Our server was top notch and helped us navigate how to order.
We shared four apps, and really loved the whole cauliflower (even if the food critics are 'over' it), burrata and roasted baby beets, and heirloom carrot and hikiji salad. For my main, I absolutely loved the fennel and fish pie (like a pot pie). We were initially steered away from it (fennel is like licorice, the server said), but I absolutely loved it.
My only complaint is that the position of my chair was in a part of flooring that is weak so every person who walked behind me (lots of servers, also, walking with purpose) caused me to feel their steps, in a really annoying way. They need to replace the floorboards in this area (about midway back of the restaurant)."

Good fresh food served graciously. That's what we do.<br />Offering a contemporary American menu of casual dishes crafted to work with the seasons, in a warm, stylish setting.<br />They say our name is an understatement. But it's still GOOD.<br /><br />We offer a moderately priced menu in a casual, stylish setting. In the heart of New York's West Village neighborhood, our comfortable dining room & friendly staff provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere. <br /><br />Our Dinner and Lunch menus offer a well-rounded selection of dishes that are familiar but with a modern twist. <br />Our innovative American Brunch keeps us busy every weekend year-round & has become a weekly staple for many.<br />And our cocktails utilize the same fresh, seasonal ingredients found throughout all our menus.<br /><br />We look forward to having you join us.
