West Village



211 Waverly Pl.,
New York,
United States,

Styled after a country estate, restaurateur Keith McNally’s Waverly Place trattoria frames its rustic furnishings—farmhouse-style tables and chairs and old wooden cabinets—within a space that features weathered brick columns and wooden ceiling beams warmly illuminated by candlestick-shade chandeliers and sconces. McNally, who was also the driving force beind the Meatpacking District's Pastis, entrusts CIA-trained chef Tony Liu with helming the kitchen at this West Village icon, and what has resulted are standout Italian dishes such as pumpkin ravioli with pomegranate sauce, braised pork with apple cider over polenta, and meatballs with pine nuts and raisins.
