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 Latin American inspired restaurant that emphasizes the social aspect of eating. Using fresh ingredients from local markets and time-tested cultural techniques, Colonia Verde is built on the principle that food tastes better when shared. From the group behind Cómodo, for the neighborhood of Fort Greene.

Little Prince is now open at 199 Prince Street in SoHo (between Sullivan St. and MacDougal St.) This new destination, featuring Chef Matt Conroy, aims to be a cozy neighborhood stand-by. Featuring classic French bistro items, the menu includes Skate Grenobloise, Bistro Chicken and Steak au Poivre, in addition to lighter fare such as Steak Tartare, Ratatouille and Mussels. Signature specials include an “off-menu” French Onion Soup Burger with caramelized onions and gruyere. Little Prince will also feature a frequently rotating beer program, highlighting unique French and local beers and seasonal French cocktails. Dramatic floral arrangements accent the light-filled space, which has floor-to-ceiling windows that look out on bustling Prince Street. Caramel banquettes line the walls and the wooden bar is warmly lit by classic globe pendant lamps. Hand-painted ceramic floor tiles complete the bistro ambience.
