The Little Owl

The Little Owl Review

This tiny neighborhood joint, with seating for 28 people, is exceptionally eager to please—and attitude, along with the food, is a winning combination. The menu is congruently small, which actually makes it easier to decide what you want. And what you want are the pork-veal-beef-pecorino-cheese meatball "sliders" or miniburgers. The unusually juicy pork loin chop, served with Parmesan butter beans and wild dandelion greens, is gigantic, and hugely satisfying. Raspberry-filled beignets, served with a ramekin of warm Nutella, are otherworldly. It's quintessential West Village: quirky and wonderful. Fans of sitcom Friends might recognize the apartment building that houses the restaurant.
