Tucked away on a beautiful tree-lined street in the West Village, The Place is a neighborhood gem with Old World charm, revered by reviewers and locals alike since 1998. Built 117 years earlier, the restaurant’s three intimate rooms are unique, retaining their original oak beamed ceilings, cool New York slate floors and working fireplaces that combined create a superb effect. And the menu is as wonderful as the ambience: Made from only the freshest, hand picked market ingredients, our talented Chef creates original Pan-European and New American dishes that have been heralded as truly outstanding.
Whatever the reason or season, The Place’s atmosphere and cuisine reflect a simple, well-orchestrated way of life that leaves diners satisfied in mind, body and spirit. In the fall and winter, take comfort by one of our stone hearth’s for a cozy, candlelit date or reunion with friends and loved ones; In the spring and summer, dine al fresco on one of our lovely terraces overlooking picturesque West Fourth Street. Weekends are perfect for our sumptuous, family-friendly brunch, and anytime is the right time to enjoy our simple tapas menu and sip a refreshing speciality cocktail or glass of wine from our eclectic boutique list in our intimate bar area, a favorite spot for people-watching among even the most discerning Villagers.
The Place also has a big heart, donating a percentage of profits to local children’s and global green charities.
