Hungry but not sure what you’re in the mood for? And instead of making a decision, you just sit there and get increasingly hungry and irrationally moody?
FEAR NOT. There is an answer. Actually, there are a few answers. Westvilles all over downtown! Each location (West Village, East Village and Chelsea) provides a similar menu filled with classic goodies: smokey mac n cheese, fish and chips, all kinds of enormous salads, french toast, and daily market specials. And if you feel like being extra classy, they have entrees for your type: grilled trout, grilled pork chops, grilled salmon. They like to grill things, obviously.
Veggie burger with fries, corn on the cob with lime, cumin and cotija cheese, and the smokey mac n cheese (bacon optional). My boyfriend swears that this is the greatest mac n cheese he’s ever had, and although it’s pretty great, I have to disagree. Beecher’s will always win.
My customary order at Westville: Greek salad with avocados and their special dill-infused balsamic dressing. Mind the heart in the dressing.
Baked challah french toast with strawberries, and a market side of brussel sprouts with honey dijon mustard. A classic breakfast here.
A quick note: their delivery service isn’t so hot (literally). The food was cold and the delivery man pedaled away quickly with the rest of my change. But on a more positive note, I once saw GAIL SIMMONS there from Top Chef having brunch with her fam. That made me very happy, since I have a celebrity girl crush on her. I was also glad that it was her and not Padma. Padma scares the living daylights out of me.
