The Spotted Pig
WEST VILLAGE. West Village setting aside, this gathering spot is a London-style gastro-pub in every sense of the word. For starters, there is the food, an inventive combination of British and Italian favorites prepared using local ingredients go for the smoked haddock chowder or sautéed quail with cippolini and marinated figs. More than that, the restaurant also boasts a solid wine selection and, in keeping with the pub tradition, a tasty lineup of drafts. Perennially packed, the Spotted Pig does not accept reservations … but, oh, is it ever worth the wait!
