American Bar is a West Village restaurant from the people behind Cafe Clover with wicker furniture, forest-green banquettes, and an almost overwhelmingly expansive American menu. It has everything from an egg salad sandwich to a bowl of chips with a side of caviar, and it’s a perfectly fine spot to eat a nicely cooked steak with a couple of picky diners. Sure, the menu’s a little boring, and most of the entrées cost more than $30 - but this place is open late, and it’s an attractive space with dim lighting, loud music, and little lamps on every table.

Bobo is "Perfect For" Girls Night Out, and has an amazing outdoor area, but the food is underwhelming. Also, wait 'til you find out how they came up with the name. Come on.
We love Piccolo Angolo because it’s the antithesis of every other restaurant within walking distance. There is nothing cool or buzzworthy happening here, just really good, classic Italian food that will make you happy and probably very fat.

Most everything on the menu at Charlie Bird is fantastic. They do service and wine better than almost anyone else.
