Questions about Peasant
Hopefully, I can get some quick answers on this as I'm leaving for the city in a few hours:
Does anyone know if it's possible to dine at the bar as a walk-in (the upstairs bar, not the wine bar)? Would getting there right at 6 be a safe bet for doing so?
Also, does anyone know if the wine bar (downstairs?) serves the regular menu or only snacks/wine?
There are some small tables in the front of Peasant that are reserved for walk-ins. I have no idea how successful you'll be at 6 p.m. on a Saturday.
The wine bar downstairs serves a modified version of the regular menu. For example, some of their pastas are on the wine bar's menu, but not the lasagna, one of Peasant's most beloved dishes.
i have eaten at the upstairs bar several times. they offer a full menu. it's actually very pleasant there since it's a little removed from the noisy dining room. there have always been a few stools available but i tend to eat late. the bartenders have all been really knowledegable about the menu. funnily enough my one complaint from the last time i ate there was that the cocktails the bar tender made for us tasted like coolaid. otherwise he was a great waiter.
