The Quarter / NYC, NY

Located in the landmarked historic district of Greenwich Village, The Quarter is the perfect little place to eat after a day of shopping at specialty stores, trendy fashion emporiums, antique, vintage clothing, and craft shops, and artisan food markets. This neighborhood restaurant with a mix of locally inspired American cuisine and Mediterranean and Asian flavors also has a wonderful wine cellar to boot! Executive chef Jason Avery and Sommelier Hakan Aktas have pooled their expertise to create a relaxed, cozy place where food and beverages are presented with crisp, clean flavors and a touch of whimsy. The Quarter's menu changes seasonally to take advantage of the freshest ingredients - particularly local - at their prime. Some of my favorite dishes include the Smoked Tomato Bisque with Mini-grilled Brie Cheese Sandwiches, Foie Gras Fig Newtons, The Grilled Pesto Chicken Paillard with Broccoli Rabe Caesar Salad, and The Quarter Steak Special with House Cut Fries with Home Made Ketchup, Watercress and Bone Marrow.  And after a tasty culinary adventure here, why not stroll over to the beautiful High Line to take in the sunset on the Hudson.
