Pork at Peasant!

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

Peasant has a casual vibe but the food here is serious. Just about every dish was terrific. In particular, you should try to get dishes cooked in the wood-burning oven. We had pounded rib-eye covered in chives and mushrooms, as well as roast sucking pig and an amazing frittata. Our kids enjoyed their pizza. The recommended wine was excellent, as... More

Our dinner at Peasant was one of the best meals during our time in New York. The homemade gnocchi was especially delicious. We loved the location and the decor - felt like we were in a rustic inn in Italy! I highly recommend Peasant and look forward to a return visit.

We visit Peasant when in NYC and we love it! Ally in the basement is a doll. The ambiance is awesome as is the service. We like to eat down stairs and it is a great date spot!

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.
