The other day we did has a pretty awesome brunch at Alexandra, a West Village bistro known for it’s happy service and music.
We went to Alexandra restaurant, located in the West Village and bumped Eran, the owner. Eran was born in Israel and moved to NYC 14 years ago!
He decided to open a small West Village bistro with American cuisine, happy service and music. Besides, the restaurant, Eran works in the super cool NYC film industry.
Everything at Alexandra is very fresh sine they go to the market every other day! Plus, it’s all cooked “a la minute”, so they don’t prepare anything before hand. It’s the type of place where they certainly don’t try too hard and do get it right on point!
This is for sure our type of place, since it’s not part of the NYC Scene.
What to try? Everything! We were in a big group, so we were able to try several dishes.
Their Calamari is definitely the b-e-s-t we’ve ever had. It’s not fried! It’s pan-seared and the taste is heavenly.
The buttermilk fried chicken with amish farm cage free chicken, marscarpone mashed potatoes and asparagus was a big success. The Burger is a very simple tasty burger and worth it, if you’re into burgers.
The omelets, salads and desserts are all very good too!
Drink? Oh! Eran did this great Frozen Margarita that was perfect for this crazy hot and humid weather. The girls were into wine and couldn’t stop the “refill”.
Plus, They have live Jazz music every now and then, so call them to see when the next show will happen!
If you enjoy the neighborhood, you can visit a few spots we love!
