The Little Owl
“Who loves you?” sings Frankie Valli in the legendary Little Owl restaurant in Greenwich Village. The answer is Rosie Bova’s three grandsons—Lou, Joey, and Mikey. Together, they’ve earned wild success, with lines out the door just a few weeks after opening. Sure, the restaurant is cozy, friendly, and decorative, but it’s the food that has won followers. Grandma Rosie’s molasses and Romano cheese-infused Gravy Meatball Sliders sell over 1,000 weekly, while the Little Owl Burger was proclaimed the world’s best by the UK newspaper The Guardian.
