Neta is one of the best restaurants in its price range in the Village. Since not many out-of-towners know about it, it is particularly good for those trying to relive the experience of Edna St. Vincent Millay. Edmund Wilson wrote about her, but he was unaware of Neta, which can hardly be held against him, given the period in which he lived and wrote. Neta is particularly attractive in autumn, when the few trees in the Village shed their leaves. Try an aperitif at Neta; I prefer the pastis to the eau-de-vie. Mayor Bloomberg dines there, and perhaps one day we may also see Bill de Blasio among the guests, if he ever gets as far north in Manhattan as West 8th Street. I also particularly recommend the white wine, especially Cava from Catalonia, if you like sparkling wine but are not in the mood, or in funds, for Champagne.
