    VIBE

    Housed in a former garage, this stylishly faux-shabby restaurant comes complete with practical café tables, brick walls, cement floors, and a dominating open kitchen. The space is cool and lofty, but there's plenty of warmth radiating from the impressive wood-burning brick oven that churns out wave after wave of seasonal and green market cuisine. When the chill of winter recedes, the restaurant opens its garage doors and allows customers to wine and dine alfresco on the adjacent sidewalk.

    CROWD

    A mix of West Villagers and other stylish Manhattanites.

    WHAT WE WOULD WEAR

    Diners and wait staff alike dress stylishly casual, so go for a laidback dress or blouse with skinny jeans and flats.

    WHY WE LIKE IT

    Because the menu changes on a regular basis to accommodate seasonal ingredients, there’s always something new to try here (though fortunately its standbys are often retained on the menu–we almost always spot the chocolate pudding, much to our delight).

    WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE

    Nothing. The ambiance, food, and service are all consistently spot on, and we love coming here to kick off the warm weather with a table on the sidewalk and a glass of rosé.

    GOOD TO KNOW

    The restaurant is located on Industria Superstudios’ ground floor. The head honcho here is Jonathan Waxman, a celebrity chef, restaurateur, and author, who can be spotted on TV on Top Chef Masters. He is a firm believer in and supporter of green market cuisine, and is particular about using local and organic ingredients for his Italian-inspired dishes. Consequently, the menu changes daily based on what's freshest and at peak season.
