If you really like natural wine, then you’ll find a short wine list entirely made up of them at L’Accolade. But considering there are better natural wine programs all over the city (at places like Ruffian, The Ten Bells, Four Horsemen, and Have & Meyer), a better reason to check out this West Village French spot is for a casual date. Make a reservation for a table in the loud, brick-walled dining room, or try to get a couple seats at the bar, and share some charcuterie or small plates while discussing your feelings on natural wines.

Wilfie & Nell
Wilfie & Nell is, first and foremost, a place you come to drink, rather than a place you come to eat. Consider it an added bonus that the bar food you'll likely be eating while standing near a tiny ledge is pretty good.
Mary’s Fish Camp
Mary's still makes an excellent lobster roll, but this restaurant has developed some flaws with age. Hit it for lunch or brunch, avoid it for dinner.
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.

Little Prince needs a lot of fine tuning. We really wanted to love this place. But don’t hire a bunch of waiters just because they look cool, and don’t fail on technique when you’re serving French food.
