Little Owl, I want to love you. I really do. We've had a few nice evenings together and honestly, I think if things were different, it could work out between us.

The problem is that none of my friends like you. Every time I bring my friends around, you make them mad. You sometimes serve a sub par piece of fish or kill your tuna lettuce wrap appetizer with salad dressing. Every once in a while you run out of an entree. You are always so friendly and they expect things to be great, but then something goes awry and I have to defend you.

They tell me I should be spending my time somewhere else. They say there are better places in the West Village to spend my money. They say I am too good for you. I know I should just take their advice and walk away, but you have such a sweet, sweet pork chop. If you only served pork chops and meatball sliders, I would give you a 9.0 rating and we would move in together and have game night every Thursday. Think about it. We would be so happy.

I made you a mix tape.

Food Rundown

Big Eye Tuna Appetizer

This is such a frustrating little number. Upon first examination, this is a beautiful piece of big eye tuna sashimi wrapped nicely in a piece of lettuce. As mentioned above, it unfortunately is decimated by what tastes like Italian dressing from the bottle. Such a shame.

Gravy Meatball Sliders

These are perfect meatballs (pork, veal, beef, and pecorino) served slider style with gravy. Note for sharing, these come three to an order.

Clam Strips

Clam strips are clam strips, and this holds true for this appetizer. They're fine, but don't expect fireworks.

The Porkchop

Served with wild dandelion and parmesan butter beans, this pork chop is the stuff dreams are made of. The bone in chop is incredibly flavorful, has a nice caramel colored crust, and the greens and butter beans are the perfect compliment. I have considered ordering several, freezing them, and stashing them in my Doomsday backpack.

Crispy Chicken

This is a very well done chicken entree. It comes served with asparagus home fries, which is apparently what you get when you put asparagus in the pan with home fries.

Conceived in the spirit of Little Owl, this is a tiny West Village restaurant perfectly engineered for surveying action while you eat. Dinner is generally better than brunch, but it's a nice place to dine any time of day.

Prune review image

Instead of waiting outside of it for brunch, hit Prune for dinner.

Fedora review image

Fedora is in the basement of a townhouse in the West Village, and it feels like a dinner party in a speakeasy that your friends happen to own.

Jeffrey’s Grocery review image

Jeffrey’s Grocery in the West Village is one of the few restaurants in town we return to regularly. It is Perfect For pretty much everything.
