We stumbled on this place looking for a lunch/brunch spot over Thanksgiving, and we have fallen in love with it! It's a terrific little place at Broadway and Bleeker in Greenwich Village, and a perfect spot for lunch or brunch. Dinner menu looks great, too. The staff is terrific, and manager Stephanie, who hails from our city of Cincinnati originally, is friendly, helpful, and runs a tight ship.

The bar below, called "The Vault," is one of the coolest bar spaces I have ever seen in New York, richly appointed in an old English style. I was so impressed that I'm going back tonight for a cocktail on our last night in New York for this trip. Yep, it's that good.

Go! And tell Stephanie that Douglas from Cincinnati said "Hey!" :-)

Had an excellent lunch here. Fresh soups (1 tomato & 1 chicken noodle) followed by very fresh prawns, served in a small skillet with garlic. I had their special chicken wrap & fries. Everything was perfectly prepared and served with a smile. What more can you ask?

We were looking for a place where we could get a simple meal in a relaxed atmosphere. This place had excellent food (I ordered the burger and fries - something I rarely do) - it was superb. The service was equally good - nice people with helpful suggestions. I'd recommend it highly.

Corner Shop was the perfect place to live above for four years. It's a small place with a small menu, where everything is delicious. If your mom opened a restaurant, this would be it. This remains my favorite brunch spot - the creme brule dipped french toast will change your life. It doesn't hurt that the owners of Corner opened one of my favorite bars in NYC (and one of the best cocktail spots), located just underneath.
