Randomly walking into a small West Village restaurant, with no prior intelligence, is not a strategy I recommend.

But I did. This place, as far as I know, has not been on the Mouthfuls radar. I’ve visited the H&C (sustainable, natural, etc) butcher before, but hadn’t noticed the attached restaurant, which essentially serves up the butcher’s meat.

And what a good meal. Small sample, I know, but it gave me confidence in this kitchen. A steak tartare which was just fine, then a piece of coppa which had really been cooked correctly, seasoned correctly, and came with a creative combination of sweet grilled peach and tart labneh.

The wine list is utterly minimal, but they pour hearty.

I wish this was in my neighborhood. I’ve had much more problematic meals at restaurants which are very much on the Mouthfuls radar.

Good to know. I walk past it all the time and the menu looks appealing, but it seems a little pricey for a casual meal for me, and a little casual for a date.  I'll check it out.

You might have seen it recommended in a performing arts newsletter in the months since it opened.

You know it’s an offshoot of a well-regarded butcher shop, right?

Didn't know either of those things.  I don't know what newsletter you're referring to.

Well the butcher shop is next door, right?  I've been there before.

 

Prices were a bit variable night I was there.  The short ribs special was $38, I think, which is expensive: although it looked big enough to share. The coppa was $26, the tartare $13, which I thought was very fair.
