I was looking at Peasant's menu on menupages.com in consideration of it for a wedding-night dinner. However, I almost FAINTED when i saw the prices! I eat at "upscale" NYC places frequently and happily pay for great food but $30 for a plate of Risotto?! $24 for Orzo? $12 salads? I risked humiliation by calling and asking if the portions were by any chance "family style" and as I suspected, they're not. What's the deal with this place? It can't be THAT good, can it?
The ceremony's in NoLita so if anyone can suggest alternatives walking distance for a group of 10, I'd greatly appreciate it..
