So my good friend Clinton always has great insights to little eateries around the city. I can always trust his recommendations. Today he called me for a last minute lunch and since the sun was shining I knew I could not turn it down. I needed a break from studying anyway.
The place we went was in the Greenwich Village on 90 Bedford called the Little Owl. It just so happens that the restaurant is the first floor of the building used in "Friends" for Monica's apartment. This was just a little icing on the cake. The restaurant was great! It is situated on this quiet corner with lots of windows, which was perfect on this beautiful day! The restaurant itself is pretty small, but I liked it that way. It felt cozy and definitely more personal. I ordered the grilled chicken breast and it came with asparagus home fries. The chicken was so flavorful. Every bite was perfectly grilled with just the right amount of sauce and spices. I also loved the portion size. I hate leaving a meal feeling full and uncomfortable. They gave you the perfect amount of food. It also was pretty well priced. My friend Clinton got the cod, which he was impressed with as well. I guess they are known for their bacon cheeseburgers or the gravy meatball sliders. If I had seen the cheeseburgers before I ordered I would have got one of those, they looked amazing!! I was still definitely happy with what I got, and now I have a reason to come back!!
Not only was the food great, but the service was great too. We had a cute server, who was super friendly. The food came out very fast and everyone was very attentive to the needs of all the customers. The check came in a book full of comments from previous customers. I thought this was such a great idea. I wish I had read some of them, or made one of my own, but I will next time for sure
