Set on a quiet block of Greenwich Village, the rustic, farmhouse-slash-greenhouse that is Hundred Acres is a lovely place to while away a long lunch or quiet dinner. The market-driven creative comfort food keeps the neighborhood patrons and out-of-towners-in-the-know coming back again and again. Mains run the gamut from fish to meat: think a luscious pork shank with polenta and rhubarb chutney; shrimp and grits; or a classic burger made from pasture-raised beef, topped
with Vermont cheddar and served with fries and Vidalia onion mayonnaise. Weekend brunch is a standout affair, with a list of variations on the bloody mary theme and treats like a country pâte sandwich and goat cheese–sage bread pudding.
