West Village for three days.

We're (I like to think), a young couple in their early 60's and we've rented an apartment in the West Village for three days. We'd appreciate ideas about where to eat in the area. We're interested in places such as Barbuto and Recette . If we can't get into those , where else might we try? Also interesting places for lunch would be appreciated.

Thank you all in advance. Toby 1355

    Corner Bistro is a great Burger joint. Jane is a great place for lunch/dinner. Bar Pitti is great for lunch/dinner and has outdoor seating. It's an Italian place. Cafe Cluny is very nice for breakfast/lunch/dinner. Good luck.

      If you want an awesome burger, you should definitely check out Tavern on Jane (diagonally across from Corner Bistro, actually). The burgers are juicy and the best I've had in the city. I haven't tried Corner Bistro's, but I do know that Tavern on Jane is $12 or so for a burger whereas CB is around $5. The ambience at Tavern on Jane is MUCH nicer and more of a sit-down restaurant than a pub (like CB).

      I sodi on Christopher for Italian but it's a small place so reserve. For lunch, take a stroll over to Num Pang for Cambodian sandwiches (on the spicy side) or Keste for pizza. Any cuisines in particular you're looking for (or looking to avoid)?

        I second Cafe Cluny for breakfast, and I also second Tavern on Jane for a burger. I must admit that I don't understand the passion for Corner Bistro burgers. I think it's more the history, location and even name of the place that creates the illusion that the food is good. If you like fish and don't mind waiting, I love Mary's Fish Camp. The Little Owl is a charming spot that good food and a very West Villagey feeling.
        Have fun!
