dinner on cornelia street....
i moved from the east village 5 yrs ago...i'm looking for an excellent meal in the village for four in west/greenwich village. we used to go to cornelia st cafe, po etc. i'm sure there's good food on cornelia st still, but where should we try?
thanks in advance,
Depending on when you are going (as you will need to make reservations well in advance at all of these) try: Perilla, Market Table, Little Owl...

We just went to Palma and dined in the lovely garden. Food was good. Olives with fennel and bread were good. We had a salad, fried calamari and sage (very nice, cooked perfectly, loved the fried sage leaves, no red sauce), fish stew (large enough for two to share) and a bottle of wine.
I used to go to Cornelia Street Cafe (just celebrated 30 years) often years ago and have rediscovered it. We have had several delicious meals there lately (mussels, fish, duck, salads, etc.).
Don't know if I would classify either place as "excellent."
