Back Forty West

Back Forty West Review

The SoHo spinoff of the popular East Village restaurant, Back Forty, where chef Peter Hoffman was doing sustainable farm-to-table fare long before it became a near-obligatory restaurant trend in the Big Apple, outdoes the original. Neighborhood denizens and shoppers flock here for well-executed comfort food. The menu changes with the season but expect dishes like coconut-milk-spiked scallop ceviche, pumpkin hummus, a very good grass-fed burger, and grilled trout from the Catskills, served alongside quality cocktails and a short but excellent list of beer and wine. Add in rustic, homey decor and you'll feel like you're hundreds of miles form that shopping mecca known as SoHo.
