The last time my husband and I visited this place we came for a glass of wine. On this return trip, we wanted to make sure to try the food. The wine selection is well rounded. I highly recommend the Orvieto. We started out meal with the procutto and fruit platter. My husband opted for the cuttle fish. For my... More

We had one of the best meals in a long time at Peasant. The chef is creative in his combinations and it's obvious he uses only the best ingredients because the food is absolutely delicious. The space is warm and inviting-- it's a perfect dining spot for winter in NY. It also has a nice bar area, something often lacking... More

We asked the waiter what he thought of a wine we had selected on the menu. He applauded our choice, and when he left the table we applauded him for not trying to up-sell us to a more expensive bottle (the bottle we selected was $45). My husband had been pointing to in on the menu. The waiter brought the... More

It was a short weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were looking for a reliable restaurant, off the beaten path, where we were certain to get a great meal without pretention and over-the-top prices. Our research led us to Peasant, with has been around since he 1990s and still draws a strong crowd. We had read about the chef,... More

We recently had dinner at Peasant with another couple and had a excellent time! The food was amazing, everything from the appetizers to the deserts. The prosciutto wrapped mozzarella appetizer was very good and the suckling pig and potatoes entree tasted great. We had a couple different deserts, each one was served with a side of gelato which again tasted... More

A sales rep took a large party to dinner and the mix of yumminess was shared by all. It was weird going down into a basement for our "private" dining event but it was cozy and cute.

One of my favourite restaurants that I make a point of visiting every time I'm in NYC. The Chilli octopus is simply amazing and every dish there is well done. A bit on the pricey side however.

As the review stated below, this place is good but not great. The food was pretty solid but nothing spectacular that would make me want to come back again. The biggest disappointment came in the portion side. I ordered the Tagliolini with Veal Ragu which was very good but for a pasta dish in the mid $20 range, I expected... More

Mixed emotions about this place...my cocktails and Apps were very good, but my a Wild Boar Ragu and wifey's Pumpkin Risotto were both just good. Not bad, just not wow factor. The "direct from Venice" waiter was attentive and charming, and his broken English accent added to the ambience. The room was cozy and filled with a lot of young... More
