West Village Dinner Suggestions

mickel Jul 13, 2013 07:22 AM

Any suggestions for moderately priced dining in West Village with my wife and 2 adult kids? Would like a restaurant that takes reservations and would be not more than $50 per person. Just looking for place with good food.

    What date will you be in town?

    Is that $50pp BEFORE tax, tip, wine/drinks?

    How much do you care about space/noise? Is cozy and cramped OK, or a little loud?

    Some ideas:
    Blue Ribbon Bakery
    Kin Shop
    Empellon Taqueria

      $50 before tax and tip. No big drinkers. Space between tables would be nice. All that you suggested take reservations? Thanks!

        Those are all on OpenTable.

        The only one that you might feel quite a bit cramped at would be Recette, dependent upon where they seat you.

          Ditch plains has opentable for 4 at 7 or 8pm sun, nice casual with seafood focus
          I always enjoy westville, but they don't take res. if you are going b/w 6-7pm won't be much of a wait, good casual food with lots of daily market specials
          I also second blue ribbon bakery suggestion below

              Highly unlikely they can get 4 people for tomorrow night at Little Owl, unless they try to walk in at 5pm.

              I had some very nice ziti with artichoke hearts and sundried tomato at Trattoria Spaghetto on Carmine street a few nights ago. The pasta, glass of wine and 20% tip set me back about $25. It's a solid red-sauce Italian, a neighborhood kind of place. Not too sure how crowded it will be on a weekend. DH and I have been going for a few years--it's one of our "places".

                Check out Bell Book and Candle on West 10th Street. You can stay in your budget if you order wisely:

                  Kin Shop is very good if you appreciate Thai flavors.

                    How about La Lanterna di Vittorino? Cute little italian place with great food.
