Peasant menu

Does anyone have a link to Peasant where I can look over their menu? From what I understand it's in Italian and I want to be familiar with it before I go, which is in a couple of weeks. Thanks for your help fellow foodies.

  1. Try googling:

    The waiter will translate the menu (albeit very quickly) tableside, so that'll help.

    2. chrism,

      Please post a review after you go. We'll be in NYC in Dec and Peasant is one of the places I'm thinking about visiting. Thanks!

        Will do dd. Looking forward to trying a variety of dishes as there will be 5 of us, one being a chef.

          dd...definitely go to Peasant! We had a great night, Sunday, so it wasn't terribly crowded, at least by NYC standards. Every dish the 5 of us had was very good. Appetizers of sardines, tripe, bocconcini and octupus were flawless. Entrees of ossobucco, lasagne, pork, orata and a pasta special were all well represented. The orata had some bones left after the owner himself fileted it, however, I guess that is to be expected. Service was extremely good, Helen from Shopshire, along with wine and a couple of desserts. Not an inexpensive place but well worth it. Hope this helps, have fun!

            Thanks so much! Peasant is very high on the very short list for a Thursday night in Dec. I thought I read something on this board about the FOH being a little unpleasant, but it may have been another restaurant. They all run together from down here....

            Thanks again! Glad you had a good meal.

        2. Could anyone tell me more about the desserts at Peasant?? I'm a sucker for anythign chocolate...

          Also, how big are the pizzas?? Anyone better than another??

          Heading there for the first time this weekend.

            I had a great white chocolate bread pudding there.

          2. I'm not a big dessert person but our table had the bread pudding and the panna cotta, both looked very good and the table seemed to like them as well.

            1. I really wish their menu would include the English translation. It's a pretty extensive menu and by the time the
              waitress finishes translation for you, you've forgotten everything she said. This restaurant just didn't work for me. It was just okay. I would never bother to recommend it to anyone and I have no desire to go back. Underwhelming is the only way I can describe it.
