The Little Owl
Had a very good meal there Wednesday night with two friends. The room is dark, small and inviting. The staff is friendly and accommodative, an accomplishment considering the great demand that the positive word of mouth has created.
We had an amazing White Truffle Risotto, topped with Raw Egg and excellent Sea Scallops as starters. The mains were the justly famous Pork Chop ( "best I ever had, anywhere"), a delicious whole Red Snapper with Herbs, Olives and Lemon and a very fine Roasted, Crisped Chicken ( "you expect roast chicken to be somewhat ordinary, but this was really special").
The wine list was a little disappointing, with not enough selections under $75.
The restaurant is a very nice addition to the West Vilage. It is cozy and comfortable. I suspect that the hype may have built it up a bit, but for those with reasonable expectations, it satisfies. i wish it was in my neighborhood!
