One of the beauties of New York City is just getting lost around town and suddenly bumping into one of those small, cool, off the spotlight places we just crave to uncover. Wilfie & Nell is one of these type of spots! A super cool bar in the West Village.
Oh, if these stone walls could talk…
The other night we went to a bar in the West Village called Wilfie & Nell with a group of friend. It’s exactly this type of place we described above.
The music was great, the décor of the place is rustic yet polished, with beautiful brick walls and pillars. Their full bar is gorgeous and there is a small private room which is one of the best spots in there.
They pride themselves in “serving good drinks & locally sourced food”, but people mostly go there for their fantastic booze.
There are no reservations available. Tables and bar spots fill up pretty quick, but there is always a gap to squeeze in with friends.
The food is served until 2am, so it’s a great place if you are a night owl. If you’re a vegetarian, like our Founder Fê Paronetto, don’t worry. You’ll have great options.
These are some dishes she personally enjoys:
- Smashed avocado toast with soft boiled egg and chile flakes
- Mushroom and goat cheese frittata with baked eggs, red peppers, scallions, crispy potato and mâche salad
- Fried pickled cauliflower with smoked chile dipping sauce
- Sax elby cheese board with experience with seasonal fruit and raw wildflower honey
- Portobello mushroom burger with muenster cheese, lettuce, tomato and red onion
Their sides are mostly vegetarian too and there are a few dishes you can order with no meat.
Over the weekends there is a younger, noisier crowd. So, if you’re into something “calmer”, try going on a random week night or just arrive there earlier.
Also, try their brunch Saturdays or Sundays!
If you’re looking for a place to celebrate your birthday or a special occasion, you might want to check the place out. We’re sure your friends will find it pretty awesome!
