Townhouse Dining at its best!
When talking real estate speak, "quaint" is a nice way of saying "small". If you're a New Yorker, you know this better than most. It's not quite the same with restaurants, yes it still connotes small but it's so much more, it's a vibe, a hominess, an attention to the little details. This, this is Dominique Bistro.
Opening it's doors in November of 2015, on the picturesque corner where Christopher and Gay Streets merge in the West Village, namesake Chef Dominick Pepe's restaurant is truly something special. With windows lining the entirety of the restaurant and a large wooden bar inside it's almost a wonder that there is space for tables in this quaint space. That said, the second you walk in, you feel that specialness.
Sitting down at a table for two with one of my favorite girlfriends, we ordered bubbly and iced coffee—not to be too brand centric—and prepared ourselves for a lunch I will flat out say you must go and experience for yourself. From Pistachio Crusted Lamb to squid ink Linguini loaded with lumps of blue crab meat, this French bistro takes the classic French cuisine to the next level. It's not your average meal, it's better. On that note, I'll leave you with the direct order, GET INVOLVED!
