Gabriel Stulman is taking over the West Village. He recently moved Perla up from Minetta Lane to this cozy corner locale to give him 5 eateries in the area. This more casual (and affordable) rendition serves Italian-inspired cuisine and stands up to the lofty reputation Mr. Stulman has built. There’s a pretty lofty art collection too.
Note: Perla is permanently closed and has reopened as a wine bar, Fairfax
Fairfax is an all-day neighborhood cafe and wine bar. Come on in early for coffee and pastries to stay or go, settle in for a light lunch and the newspaper, or swing through at night with friends for a bottle of wine and a full-on dinner.
