Greenwich Village and the West Village are two historic NYC neighborhoods that are rich in diversity and culture. This is definitely reflected in the wide variety of food establishments within this small area of New York City.

There is a little something for everyone from classic pizzerias, modern takes on the classic burger joint, popular causal Thai restaurants, Michelin star restaurants, authentic Italian restaurants and more.

Cafetasia – 38 E 8th St
Cafetasia is a local hotspot, popular with college students. You really can’t beat one of their lunch or dinner specials especially one starring their Pad Thai or Pad See Ew, both are very satisfying and perfect for a quick meal with friends.

One if by Land, Two if by Sea – 17 Barrow St
One if by Land, Two if by Sea is a historic location, rumored to be haunted. Perhaps the ghosts linger because of their Beef Wellington which has somewhat become their signature dish. It is very tender and bursting with flavor and at the very least it has us coming back for more.

A Salt and Battery – 112 Greenwich Ave
British cuisine really hasn’t gotten its fair shake. You really haven’t tried Fish & Chips until you’ve tried A Salt and Battery’s, as it is easily the best Fish & Chips on this side of the pond.

Joe’s Pizza – 7 Carmine St
In a city with a ton of pizzerias, there are only a few which truly are must have experiences. Joe’s Pizza is one of them.

The Spotted Pig – 314 W 11th St
It is not a secret among locals that The Spotted Pig makes a great burger. It is incredibly juicy and insanely delicious and just thinking about it has us drooling for more.

Spice – 39 E 13th St
Spice is another top notch Thai restaurant in Greenwich Village. In addition to the Thai staples like Pad Thai and Pad See Ew, you must try their shrimp fritters and duck wraps.

Gotham Bar & Grill – 12 E 12th St
Gotham Bar & Grill is a Michelin star restaurant and it is the pinnacle of gourmet dining. Their dishes are culinary masterpieces such as their Yellowfin tuna tartare, chilled corn soup and grilled rack of lamb; all are adventures with every bite.

Little Owl – 90 Bedford St
Two words. Meatball sliders. Every bite is an explosion of flavor, making them wildly addictive.

BLT Burger – 470 6th Ave
It really doesn’t get better than a Cookie Monster milkshake, one of BLT’s signature burgers and a side of waffle fries. It is the ultimate comfort food.

Il Mulino – 86 W 3rd St
Il Mulino is an authentic Italian restaurant serving classics such as raviolis and homemade pastas. Honorable mentions go to Lupa and Babbo Ristorante e Enoteca both are solid Italian restaurants that are all within the vicinity.
