Adventorous Under the Radar Spot (West Village or Union Square)

I am looking for a somewhat under the radar or hidden gem for a dinner with an adventurous foodie. It doesn't have to be some sort of extreme cuisine, but something that a foodie would appreciate who has tried all the normal foodie spots. Not really worried about price. West Village or Union Square vicinity would be great.

Thanks!

    Wong -- previously under the radar until their recent NYT review, but still somewhat under the radar
    Takashi -- same except it was on Anthony Bourdain's The Layover, but for a while you could walk in and sit with no wait

          Thanks. Just looked at the menu and the Seared Veal Liver Sashimi sounds interesting as well. Might give that a try.
