A great place to stop in for a cozy glass of wine and killer olives!

The subterranean wine room located underneath Peasant, is a more intimate space, candle lit in a rustic, charming atmosphere. Finding it though, is a little tricky, look for candles lit on the steps begging you to enter through a medieval wooden door. The wine selection is lovely and the olives are... read more

The subterranean wine room located underneath Peasant, is a more intimate space, candle lit in a rustic, charming atmosphere. Finding it though, is a little tricky, look for candles lit on the steps begging you to enter through a medieval wooden door. The wine selection is lovely and the olives are a perfect pairing!

Was not the best spot for a big group dinner but the servers managed it well. Good drinks and interesting menu. Some menu items a bit too daring for some, but there is always pizza as a backup.

We were recommended to this place for its Italian food. My dish was pork liver and polenta and was excellent, my wife's dish was skate and destroyed. It was overcooked and far too salty. The skate was buried in capers, when the capers should have been a garnish. I would have rated the restaurant average based on the two dishes... More

It was definitely a loud experience, but it was delicious. The menu is amazing, and the cocktails are to die for! The service was definitely the highlight of the evening though, our waiter was so knowledgeable and sweet! He made conversation with us and gave awesome recommendations. I will be back for sure.

Authentic Italian dining at its best . . . topped off w bread pudding if you know what's good for for you! Check out the wine room on the lower level.

I hadn't booked for dinner but I had a great experience at Peasant. Great environment, good service and delicious food. Well worth a visit when downtown.

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 the daily specials.... 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

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.
