New to NY and want lunch in west village

erinl Nov 25, 2008 07:13 AM

I'm here visiting nyc from LA and want a cute lunch spot in the west village. I love italian, french, american cuisine...any suggestions?

    For American, Westville. It's small, but between the salads & sandwiches, it's really good. For more of a vibe, the Blue Ribbon Bakery. Neither place is super posh, just possessing lots of variety. Le Gigot seems a bit over the top for lunch, but it's good. I don't rec Pearl nor Home on Cornelia.

      I second Perry St. Also, try Le Gigot on Cornelia or Pearl Oyster Bar (also on Cornelia), both open for lunch and darling, charming, etc.

        Bar Pitto on 6th Ave. between Bleecker & Houston (cash only). Cornelia St. Cafe is American, very reasonably priced. I, too, like the pizza at Grano.

          If you like Greek food, I highly recommend Snack. They have amazing and fresh food!

            Do you mean Snack Taverna? Snack is in Soho. I like Snack Taverna--it's good for dinner, but I've never been for lunch.

          This isn't quite "cute" but Perry Street has a great lunch special (or at least it used to, not sure if it has changed by now). It is $24 prix fixe and a beautiful setting.

          I've also had a more casual lunch at Extra Virgin, which was cute.
