Years ago the Westville was born. A tiny restaurant in the Downtown area.
Basic look, spartan furnishings and a large blackboard with the menu written by hand.
More than 30 dishes of vegetables, all centered on the healthy, fresh and of the season. The winning formula: a platter with four vegetables of your choice at only $ 15 and … eye on the board, when a vegetable is deleted, useless to ask for it. A hit.
Now Westville is in Chelsea (246 W 18th St), Tribeca (333 Hudson St) West Village (210 W 10) and East Village (173 Av A).
Reservations are not accepted and waiting time may be long, but I assure you, it’s worth it.
ENJOY HEALTHY FOOD!
Among my favorites, quinoa salad, kale and leeks, marinated tofu and delicious mint lemonade
Westville’s salads are big and cut right to the point without getting too cute. You can add and subtract from the salad ingredients, and they don’t get pissed about it, which is always a plus. Definitely go with chicken over the steak as your protein. Favorites include: Westville Cobb, the Greek Salad, and a frequent lunch special, the Chopped Salad, which is a well-dressed, hearty mix of vegetables like cauliflower, kale, brussels sprouts, and broccoli. Get it with blackened chicken.
Westville always has twenty plus options available on their “Market” menu. Pick four, and you’ve got one of the best vegetarian meals in town. Favorites include: Brussels Sprouts in Dijon, Soy-Glazed Tofu with Broccoli and Sesame Seeds, Sautéed Kale with Shallots, Mushrooms with Leeks, and, of course, their Sweet Potato Fries, which are ridiculous.
