Philip Marie, a Greenwich Village staple, ushered in its 15th anniversary in February and celebrated by introducing its highly anticipated seasonal spring menu.
“This anniversary is a milestone,” exclaims owner and executive chef John Greco. “We have culled a large, loyal following in Greenwich Village for the delicious, soothing food we offer at popular prices.”
Using ingredients plucked straight from his farm upstate, Greco personally sees his culinary process from farm to table. This spring, his American comfort cuisine menu will boast a light strawberry salad, topped with walnuts, organic arugula, goat cheese and honey lemon vinaigrette, appetizers such as baked brie and slow-roasted burgundy black truffle soup, and heartier entrees such as pork tenderloin stuffed with mushrooms, white truffle essence and drizzled in an herbed molasses glaze and a mouthwatering portobello burger with stilton bleu cheese, glazed onions and bleu cheese dressing.
The large, rustic dining room gives off an inviting atmosphere, but we recommend booking the downstairs Tasting Room for parties of 4-20 people. Greco uncovered the room which had been walled up for more than a century and, local lore tells that, in the 1700’s, the room was a centerpiece of a loving couple’s home. The secret spaces downstairs also boast a Wine Room – a private wine cellar with dining for two with your own waiter and chef – and is rated one of the most romantic dining spots in New York.
