Bryan showed up one day to snake out our drain, and he never left. He’s an enigma wrapped in duck prosciutto, which is why he smells like duck prosciutto. Hobbies include skiing and fencing. His hobbies do not, however. He’s from Seattle, and if he could only eat one food for the rest of his life he’d be upset and confused. Bryan’s previous employers include Dr. Ian Bell DDS, The Gap, and Le Bernardin.
American Bar is an attractive West Village restaurant with a huge menu of things like steak, caesar salad, and chips with a side of caviar.

The Best Italian Restaurants In The West Village

Pasta Al Forno is different from most West Village Italian spots. It’s tiny and BYOB, and it’s a great place to have unexpectedly good baked pasta.
Rossopomodoro isn’t the best Italian restaurant in the West Village, and it isn’t the second or third-best either. But it’s still a useful place.
Gaetana’s is an old-school Italian spot in the West Village that tends to stay quiet. If you want to hide from the world, stop by for a chicken parm.
If you’re looking for an impressive place to get a table when you didn’t plan a month in advance, here are some great options.
There’s a constant wait at Fish Cheeks for a reason. This Noho spot makes some of the best Thai food in the city, including an excellent crab curry.
Where to drink craft beer in a place that probably has brick walls and tastefully labeled taps.
Alphabet City Beer Co. looks like a general store you’d find upstate, but it’s actually an East Village bar with armchairs and lots of craft beer.
Bronx Drafthouse is a block from Yankee Stadium, and it’s a great place to drink after you catch a game or leave work at the Bronx Supreme Court.
