Looking to try a new spot in the West Village/Far West Village -- we have theater tickets for an 8 PM show on 47th Street, so would love to do something relatively low-key, i.e. not requiring a reservation, not too involved (since we have only an hour or an hour and a half to eat), and on the early side, before taking the train uptown. Is there anything good in this category near the Christopher Street subway?
I've been thinking of trying Buvette -- anyone been?
Is Little Owl doable for a walk-in party of 2 around 6 PM on a Friday? I feel like I always see hordes of people on that corner.
Commerce? I've had drinks there and liked the vibe, but how is the food?
Thanks in advance for any quick thoughts on this last-minute brainstorm request...
