Fit for a King

Had dinner last night at Peasant and it was simply delicious. If you are looking for good Itailian food with a distinct fresh and original twist, this is the place to go. I ordered the Quail appetizer which I might say is probably the best I have had. This was followed by Venison which was one of... read more

We dined here on Friday night. We had a reservation for 8:30 which they confirmed earlier in the day. We turned up early and we're happy to have a drink at the bar. However, we weren't seated until 9pm. The waiting staff weren't particularly apologetic but the bartender was lovely and accommodating. Nevertheless the meal itself was worth the wait.... More

From the minute you walk into peasant to the minute you walk out you feel very welcome. The service was great, food incredibly tasty, the wine selection was great (if you like Italian wine). You can also see into the kitchen which I quite like. All in all a very good Italian.

Simply put this is the second time I have been here and both times it was excellent. The first time I had a few too many Martinis so I wasn't sure if I only thought it was good. This time I was quite sober and it was as good as I remembered. Menu is not the typical Italian but it... More

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

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.
