In comparison with Graffiti, this is a huge place. But in comparison with anywhere else, it's pretty small. A smart little dining room on 9th Street; the chef/owner Amanda Cohen was doing the cooking at Matthew Kenney's very short-lived Heirloom, and has a track record with a number of the city's best vegetarian restaurants.

The food is nicely done and well-priced, and there is more of course at the Pink Pig.

If the author could go around the place hitting random readers with a rubber hammer, the Pink Pig would still be worth a visit.

The photos on your page look delicious. I tried to go to this restaurant on two occasions, but it's closed on both Sundays and Mondays.

I am always puzzled when East Village restaurants close on Sundays. That's a big going out day around here, and you'd think they'd be better off closed on Monday and Tuesday.

Very enticing. Thanks, Jason.

Has there ever been a less appealing name for a restaurant?

I am sure we can think of some. Ditch Plains? Curry in a Hurry? Gneiss?

I don't think the name will be detrimental. Among the few Vegetarian Restaurants this name will stick out.. It's cute... I am just upset they dont have at least one or two offerings for us Carnivours.. After a recent trip to the doctor, I was advised that I need to eat at least one meat with each meal..

Wilf I enjoy reading your reviews.. Your photography is horrendous however.. I would suggest the 7 year old work the camera in the future.. laugh.gif Then I would like her to proofread my writing.

Really nice review too Mr. P.

One problem is that I have zero interest in photography. Nevertheless, "horrendous" seems a bit of an overstatement.



Yes, there's a photo in that article which is bad; there's clearly a problem with certain kinds of lighting, which I'll try to figure out. Jason's photos are much better than mine, and if that's what you're looking for, his is the blog to read.
