Casual dining West Village.

I have an appointment tonight on Christopher & Bleeker. Want to have a casual dinner with my finace in the area afterwards. Any suggestions? We're pretty much open to anything cuisine wise.

    My inclination would be to go to Pearl Oyster Bar and then to Cones or L'Arte for gelato afterwards.

        Villa Mosconi on McDougal St although Crispo is a sure winner as well, but a bit further away from where you will be

        Kick back with a Tiger beer at Fatty Crab, located on Husdon St. Really tasty and authentic Singaporean/Malaysian cuisine (pork buns, nasi lemak, asam laksa). Feel free to check out some pictures at: http://www.gobbl.com/blog/426

          Given your location, I recommend August, Moustache or Malatesta.

            I can't pass up the chance to recommend my all-time fave, El Charro Espanol on Charles (4 Charles @ Greenwich AVE). delicious, reasonably priced real Spanish food, and the best Margaritas in town....

              If you want a fun, affordable, lively atmosphere I would try Cowgirl. Good margaritas, chips and guac. It is on Hudson right by W 10th. Mexicana Mama is a few doors up Hudson if you want more authentic Mexican.
