"reservations on a friday night - greeted warmly by the hostess. every dish was terrific. standouts were the tomato soup, the softshell crab special, the kale caesar and the chicken pot pie (easily enough for two)."

Monument Lane is a New American restaurant in the West Village that focuses on farm-to-table cuisine. They use seasonal and sustainable products from local farmers and growers have been awarded Slow Food NYC's Snail of Approval for their standards. The menu changes weekly, if not daily, reflecting the restaurant's commitment to showcasing the local harvest. <br /><br><br><br />Established in 2011 Monument Lane takes its inspiration from the area's pastoral past; a time when Manhattan island was rich with salt marshes and grasslands, pure estuaries teamed with mussels and oysters, and acres of apple and cherry orchards bloomed nearby. In the 1700's and 1800's, New Yorkers came to Greenwich Village as a retreat to the countryside; traveling a road named Monument Lane, now called Greenwich Avenue, where the restaurant presently sits.

Located steps from Madison Square Park and the Empire State Building, L&W Oyster Co. features an array of the finest East and West coast oysters, as well as classic clam shack fare -- like Lobster BLTs, Oyster Po' Boys -- and beautiful fish entrees that showcase sustainable seafood and local produce. L&W Oyster Co. is a fun, accessible place where people can grab a fish sandwich and some pickles at lunch, then oysters and martinis after dark.

"I am a big fan of cochon, so i was excited to try their sister restaurant. i was even more impressed by Herbsaint. Great choices for every type of eater, including salads (a rarity in New Orleans). Every dish came out perfectly, both from the regular menu and the specials. Service was helpful. plenty of wines by the glass and reasonable bottles and a cool choice of wine flights. Will highly recommend."

Guests are invited to take an unpretentious seat in one of the Peacock’s four rooms, or outside on the champagne terrace, where modern elements playfully mingle with English culture and American tradition. Comfort and camaraderie fill the air as Old World bartenders mix classic British cocktails and English inspired cuisine is served upon a cloth-less wood table.<br /><br />Surrounded by a mix of original fireplaces and mahogany walls, eclectic furniture and whimsical modern art, you can’t help but feel a connection between what the building once was and what it’s become. <br /><br />The Shakespeare, located beneath the Peacock with its own separate entrance from the street, is the Peacock’s more casual pub counterpart. The Shakespeare is emblematic of a 16th century pub found in Stratford-upon-Avon and served hearty English pub grub, cask ales, wine, and cocktails.

"the bar is very cool, with very inventive cocktails. dining space is open and airy. great choices on the food, something for everyone. service was a little uneven, but we were taken care of nicely. a good place in the neighborhood, but not really destination dining."
