Need great restaurant for wife's bday in west vill.

My wife loves any kind of food - as long as it's really good. Indian, Greek, Italian, French, Malaysian, you name it. Looking for under $100 if possible. Also open to something that might be a little different. So far friends have suggested Market Table and Mas Farm House. Anybody have any other suggestions in or near the west village?? Thanks!

  1. Market Table is good, but Little Owl is better if you can get in. I also like Snack Taverna and August.

    1. Mas (farmhouse) is one of the more expensive places down there. I doubt it'd be under $100 (even per person, with wine, etc.).

      1. If you mean $100 for 2, none of the suggestions so far will work. Da Andrea is a good, solid neighborhood Italian that will fit in that price range. If you mean $100 per person, you open yourself up to many good choices. Mine would be Perilla or Bar Blanc. Agree that Little Owl is better than Market Table. I also like Snack Taverna. Jarnac is a quiet, cozy French bistro. Chow Bar could be fun, with pan-Asian food as interpreted by an American chef.

        1. Have you thought about Wallse? It's Austrian, so it's a little bit different

            I was thinking Wallse as well (you'll make the $100 mark only if it's per person.)
            I don't think of Market Table or Little Owl as a birthday spot.

          2. You can try Le Gigot, a small cozy french bistro. I consider it as quite romantic. If you don't drink too much (they have a few options by glass and some reasonable bottles), you should be able to do at around $100 or just slightly above.
