The Village Tart
Cuisine: Dessert and Drinks
86 Kenmare Street at (Mulberry Street)
New York, NY 10013
Part restaurant, part dessert bar, part lounge, but 100% delicious, The Village Tart does breakfast, lunch, dinner and late night right. Antique mirrors fit into jigsaw patterns across the walls, while the comfy booths and pressed ceiling instantly set the mood for a relaxing, romantic evening.
Well known chef, Pichet Ong, whose past ventures include Jean Georges and P*Ong, now can call The Village Tart home, as well. His goal this time? Combining sweet and savory flavors with a rustic flare aided by local products. Take, for instance, the sweet potato gratin with goat cheese. Each ingredient does its part to uphold the balance between sweet and savory. Even the desserts have multiple curtain calls! The grapefruit butterscotch budino with rum whipped cream and the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich translated into a cupcake are among the temptuous highlights.
The Village Tart is a a relaxing drink spot, an after dinner dessert spot, or the setting for an entire meal from beginning to end. Outdoor seating is set to open upon the arrival of the summer season.
