      I have never been but the Spotted Pig is supposed to be great.

        I would actually put Spotted Pig in the more expensive category. It's good, but it's not cheap.

          I don't think it is that bad. I mean the gnudi is $15 and the burger is $17. The most expensive entree on the menu is $29 pork belly.

            Well... maybe it was the bar tab that inflated my bill there the 3-4 times I've been... :-)

        I am usually the one complaining about expense whenever the girls just have to eat in the West Village. Our usual compromises are on the cheaper end of medium and include Malatesta, Trattoria Toscana, 'ino, Baoguette, Bar Pitti, La Lanterna, Grand Sichuan, Snack Taverna, Dublin 6, Rhong Tiam and Alta.

          I went to Extra virgin last summer with a friend and we both loved it. It is a beautiful restaurant with great food. The at mosphere is laid back and they have a couple of tables outdoors. The prices are very reasonable.

            Second the L'Artusi and Extra Virgin recs. Would also add Malatesta Trattoria.

            I think L'Artusi is well priced...you can keep it around $50 a person if you aren't big eaters including a drink. it's the perfect location and great food

              I consider Tartine inexpensive. What is the price range you are thinking of? Dollar figures would be helpful.

                What is the price range you are avoiding?

                You can try Market Table for "medium expensive"

                  there's just loads of places in the west village for that. any type of scene? food type? price?

                  if yr looking for just places with great food for cheap in the area, try ino, westville, moustache, da andrea, stand, and tartine.

                  what age group are these single women : )
