Amazing menu....the wine bar is great for groups like birthdays. Bread and fresh butter are top and they have a couple excellent pasta's. If you like steak or fish this place is top.

My husband and I wanted to try Peasant because we love Hartwood in Tulum started by Eric Werner (former chef at Peasant). Peasant is simply outstanding in every way. The food is real, straightforward fresh, delicious food that tastes amazing. The seafood was excellent. We had the octopus (out of this world, bursting with flavor) and great oven roasted oysters...

If you come to NYC and miss the opportunity to eat at Peasant you will have missed out on one of the best culinary experience in NYC. The food is rustic and full of delicious authentic flavours. Ambience was first rate, service was superb and it was one of those restaurants where it was obvious who the restaurant manager and... More

The food is very good here but I would like a little more light. The do some fabulous dishes here but you may not like all of them. I have been there a number of times and this is one of the best around. It gets a little busy so I ten d to go earlier if possible,

I have eaten here several times and it is one of my favorite NYC restaurants. Plain brick-walled room with open flame ovens in the open kitchen in the back. Italian inspired simple food as the restaurant name implies, but everything I have eaten has been top-notch. Last week, we shared the slow-roasted whole rabbit for two-which I have never seen...

We went there with a group of friends having found it by chance on the web. The food was brilliant. The burratta was fresh and gooey, the prosciutto crudo was delicate and cut very thinly to perfection. I had the veal ragu for main, and I was blown away. The freshness of the pasta and the flavours of the delicate... More

My French friend Stéphane introduced me to Peasant a few years ago, and we've been religiously returning ever since. The open kitchen in the back is a scene out of a happier version of Dante's Inferno, with food roasting on spits, fresh bread and pizza going into the charcoal fired brick oven, etc. This place is all about simple but...

Good food. Gnocchi, Wite asparagus risotto, Pork & veal. Great atmosphere and neighborhood for after dinner stroll in Nolita. We had a good crowd so that made the evening perfect.

This restaurant is so welcoming as soon as you walk in. I love how everything is cooked in the wood stove. Very rustic feeling and definitely a great date spot! We had a good bottle of wine with our meal as well. Be sure to make a reservation as it gets crowded! The meal can get a little costly, but... More

This was our 2nd time at Peasant and we will definitely have a 3rd. The wood fired bocconcini was amazing, suckling pig...not to be missed and the skate dish was simple but very savoury. Don't forget to save room for dessert...especially the flourless chocolate cake,
