cafe cluny review

Cafe Cluny sits on a picturesque corner in the West Village...cobblestones, townhouses, romance. The restaurant has flattering amber lighting, a lively, attractive crowd, and attentive service. The food? A mixed bag here...Heirloom tomato salad disappoints--four clumps of mealy fruit. Terrific risotto with peas and asparagus and an average stripped bass were fairly priced. A peach pie with oatmeal ice cream-- a perfectly fine dessert. For West Village ambiance and a touch of romance, Cluny delivers. I did notice, however, a string of jewel-like restaurants on the neighboring West 4th Street. This is a restaurant row that begs many visits, til I eat my way to 7th Avenue.

      The beet salad was great at Cluny. Sauteed calamari was ok, nothing special. My husband loved the short ribs. Good apple pie.
