Stinging-nettle at Gwynnett St.
West Village

Tuck into Spanish twists on bistro classics at this French-American brasserie in the West Village. Chef Jodi Bernhard (formerly of Boston's fine-dining French den Clio Restaurant) adds an Iberian accent to casual Gallic plates: leeks in romesco instead of the traditional vinaigrette; tarte flambèe topped with pancetta Iberico; and beef tartare enriched with Catalan aioli. Linger at a reclaimed-mahogany table for côte de boeuf with salsa verde and a glass of burgundy. The Edwardian-inspired space is decorated with original honeycomb tile floors, antique archways and restored tin chandeliers.
