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.

"a great place to celebrate mardi gras - or anything else. food is inventive with enough comfort dishes to make even the pickiest eaters happy. stand out dishes are the market green salad, roasted oysters, fried chicken, curried goat, and the profiteroles. the monkey bread is so delicious."

More than just a restaurant, Preserve24 is a new art and dining experience composed of a café, pub and restaurant in the theme of a turn of the century expedition society. Chef John Parlatore creates rustic American dishes with a old New York Chophouse feel which is complimented by a locally sourced Oyster & Raw Bar.

"space is cool - with plenty of nooks and crannies with different seating options - though some feel a bit too out of the way. restaurant week options were excellent - as was the regular menu. standout dishes: bone marrow, crispy oyster slders, brussel sprout salad, steak frittes, and the scallops. plenty of good options for cocktails, wine or beer. desserts were a bit weak."

"worth the detour off the beaten path. bar is buzzing - cocktails inventive, plenty of wines by glass to keep everyone happy. fodd is great - biggest problem is that the menu is too hard to choose from! standouts - oxtail dumplings, devilled eggs, beet salad, duck fried rice and the sticky pecan rolls. wait staff extremely warm and welcoming. looking forward to a return visit."

The downtown hit-makers behind Scottish hot spots Highlands and Byron at The Surf Lodge set aside the tartan for industrial chic at WHITEHALL Bar + Kitchen. Chef Chris Rendell puts an upmarket twist on British classics. <br />Gin enthusiasts will not be disappointed with the bar&#39;s artisanal selection of over 50 bottles of England&#39;s national spirit. <br />WHITEHALL is opened for cocktails and dinner. The setting is also perfect for a variety of occasions from a quiet dinner in the intimate dining room to drinks at the bar or a gathering of friends for cocktails.

"went late on a friday night (10:45ish) - and coud not have been more charmed. the hostess and waiter were both warm and welcoming - and except for being out of a few dishes - it was as good a service as prime time. mussels were terrific - huge and sweet. all the different sauces are fun. plenty of bread given to dip. will definately put it in the rotation."

"went on the early side of a saturday night - and it was terrific. interesting cocktails and nice wine list. small plates are hard to choose from because there are so many good options. bread comes with two delicious spreads. grilled octopus is perfect. space is very cool and sleak - but comfy at the same time."
