West Village upscale casual comfort food

With a snowstorm coming, I am looking for someplace in the West Village area that is a good comfort food destination with a great atmosphere. I am thinking someplace in the vein of Northern Spy Food or Ducks in the East Village. It can be any cuisine (even comforting Asian would be good). Price not an issue. Thanks so much.

  1. Could you clarify "great atmosphere"? I'm thinking maybe The Marrow, Perilla or Louro.

    1. Without further clarification I think you might be looking for some place like The Marrow (as suggested by rrems) or maybe Joseph Leonard, Jeffrey's Grocery, maybe even some place like August or Spotted Pig.

      1. For comforting Asian: Kin Shop, Wong, RedFarm

        1. Thanks to all of you. I always forget about both Wong and August. Both are great suggestions. Spotted Pig is exactly what I was thinking, but need someplace that takes reservations. Appreciate it.

              This might actually be the best night to do the Spotted Pig even despite the lack of reservations, so unless you're going with a group of 6+, you should give it a shot. Haven't been since the chef change but Cafe Cluny could also work.

                And depending upon what time you want to go; we've done the walk in several times around 5:30 - 6:00 and we were seated immediately.

                  Tonight i would try spotted pig first and just have a plan B if the wait is unmanagable.
