Three Owls Market is the West Village's newest eatery, joining the growing number of all-day cafes in New York. Fans of Fairfax, Dimes, Gertie, Golda, Hunky Dory and Ole & Steen will rejoice at the concept inspired by New York delis and European markets.
The space was designed by James Beard Award-winners The MP Shift, the studio brainchild of Anna Polonsky and Amy Morris (Ferris, Golda, Mimi Cheng's and Colonia Verde are also clients) who make many of New York's most Instagrammable eating destinations.
The menu—which pulls from Italian, Mediterranean and French pantries—includes 40-60 items for sit-down, with 25-30 prepared food options. In the morning, you can find grain porridge with barley grits, amaranth with herb oil, crispy millet and an almond pesto; yogurt with citrus, fennel seed, nuts; egg whites, peppadews, arugula; and on the weekends, a special Montecristo with egg-dipped bread, turkey, gruyere, grain mustard and jam. Pastries change daily at the to-go counter (morning glory muffin and lemon poppy seed version will be available starting on Monday), as well as to-go sides like beets with orange and juniper, cauliflower with pickled currants, spicy honey and almonds and cacio e pepe snap peas. In the afternoon there's a fancy grilled cheese with gruyere, shallot jam and pullman among other sandwiches and rotisserie meats. At night, the 24-seat space also functions as a bar, with a roster of natural wines and bar snacks (such as a petite chickpea panelle and stracciatella lemon toast) in the hopes you'll never want to leave.
