Dinning in the West Village

aberkel Oct 30, 2006 07:23 PM

I have been living east of 6th ave on Prince St for 2 years now. I have been dying to try a good restuarant in the area West of 7th ave. Can anyone suggest their favorite, not terribly expensive place to eat in the vacinity?

    I love Da Andrea on Hudson. The food is terrific, the sevice is great and the prices are very good. I also like Valdino West on Hudon which I think is underrated. You should get some great response to your post.

        If you go, make sure you try the octopus salad or tigelle rolls as an appetizer and any of their homemade pastas. I like their gnocchi. All the fresh pasta are great. Enjoy

      Westville on 10th near Bleeker. Best burger in New York, in my opinion. Great grilled corn too. And homemade cookies.

        I heart Westville. Great, unpretentious food and cozy atmosphere. Love the "market sides."

        I love Wallse, though it may be a bit on the pricey side - perhaps not the brunch, though.

            I second the recs for Da Andrea and Westville and add Petite Abielle (Hudson and Barrow) to the list - their mussels, burgers and fries are delicious. Pinxtos for tapas is excellent, too.

              I agree w/the suggestions for Da Andrea, Westville, Petite Abeille. I'd also add August, Little Owl, Snack, Cafe de Bruxelles, and Piccolo Angolo. I've had a good meal at Maremma, but that was some time ago, and I've heard mixed things lately. For brunch, beyond some of the places I already mentioned, I've had good meals at Cafe Condesa, Les Deux Gamins, Extra Virgin, and good.
