Peasant is Very Pleasant!

We were a group of six who dined here on a Sunday evening. We had apps, entrees, and desserts and every dish was a winner! How often can you say that? The service was very good and prices were very reasonable for the quality and quantity. I will go back to this restaurant the next time I'm in the... read more

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of a Cajun! He had studied 2 years in Florence so I felt his judgement on Italian cuisine was going to be spot on. Oh, it was! The place is low lit and cozy feeling immediately. We stopped at the bar for a cocktail before we were seated. Even the cocktails were... More

Modern attractive, ambience, great food, terrific menu. The staff, especially the sommelier, really knew their stuff. Modern cuisine, Italian influence - with a New York twist. Loved the decor and the open kitchen. Also good excuse to visit the Nolita neighbourhood.

My adult son and I visited Peasant this past weekend. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. I ordered the pork which had been cooked on a spit. It was the best portk I have ever had.

After having a superb dinner the night before, this restaurant was a bit more my style. First, it was Italian, Second the food was excellent, Third the location and chef had a story (read the menu), and Fourth the wine options by the glass were quite good. Both me and my coworker ordered fish, she ordered Skate and I the... More

This was the best meal during our recent trip to NYC! The lobster dish was a conversation stopper as I just had to give all my attention to this heavenly dish! Great atmosphere, and friendly efficient staff. SO good!

I have heard about this restaurant for some time now and was amazing to say the least. I took my Mom & Pop (tough Italian critic) for dinner and they both raved about it. Our waiter Francesco was extremely helpful, knowledgable (from Venice), and treated us like we were family. For appetizers we had razor clams, proscuitto with fresh pears,... More

Our dinner celebration with a large group was delicious, fun, and laid-back. The restaurant is beautiful (casual but very nice), the waiters multi-lingual, and the food delicious. We ordered several salads to share, and the burrata was superb. Excellent bread too. For main courses, many of us ordered a very good asparagus risotto. Others had pasta (made fresh to order),...

I had an unpleasant dinner with my family at Peasant where the haughty hostess clearly didn't care about us as guests. The pizza and desserts were good but the other dishes were less than inspiring. The most disappointing dining experience I have had in New York City in over a decade. I didn't expect to be treated like a peasant... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
