I know small plates are small, but here they are ridiculous. Try minuscule. One of our group ordered the bone marrow toast. The rounds of toast were the size of a quarter. We had a good laugh over this dish.

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
