Hubby and I are having a last-minute long weekend in Mahattan this Friday to Monday. We're staying in the meatpacking district, and are likely to spend most of our time in the West Village and LES. Friday night we'll line up for the Fatty Crab on Hudson, but we have no reservations for Saturday and Sunday dinners -- we'd really appreciate hearing about your "neighbourhood favourites/secrets" -- smallish places with consistently delicious food. For example, we really enjoyed the Little Owl in the West Village. We're happy to eat at the bar or tables, and we like a broad range of experiences (taverns, French, Italian, Spanish, Mexican, local, modern, etc) and we're fine to line up if worthwhile. Lunch tips appreciated too. Thanks so much, and happy to return the favour if you're ever in Toronto!
