West Village
The barn-peeled aesthetic (jeans-clad waitstaff, antique floorboards, ivy climbing up the walls of a heated back garden) and seasonally changing menu of regional European fare evoke the rustic elegance of a late-summer night spent at a lakeside cottage with your very best friends. Imagine the snap of fresh garden peas, horseradish and mint, and for a genius crowning touch, the crunch of wasabi peas—and that’s just a bowl of soup. The wood-fired onion and bacon tart is a sweet blend of grilled onions and crispy bacon, while the lathera of lamb shoulder is a brick of intense flavor; by that point, the smoked kalamata olive yogurt, although a beautiful complement to the rich lamb, is pure indulgence. Pastel de cuatro leches is a final reminder of how comfortably August turns a thing of beauty into something sublime.
