Mediterranean Food is Calling your Name at Shmone in Greenwich Village

After the success of Miznon last year, owner Eyal Shani is ready to greet the neighborhood of Greenwich Village with a new concept. Shmone is a 50-seat restaurant offering seasonal, market-driven cuisine in an intimate setting. In an official statement, Eyal remarked that Shmone is a "middle ground between the exuberance of HaSalon and our street food-style restaurant, Miznon." Customers can expect to find scallion-infused bourkas baked on hot stones and hot focaccias filled with tomatoes rich with sour cream. We love their "vegetable creatures" portion of the menu, including a white asparagus dish cooked on charcoal and doused with their in-house cream. Hungry yet? Shmone translates to "eight" in Hebrew, which hints at its 8th street location. Find Shmone at 61 W 8th Street between MacDougal St. and Avenue of the Americas.

Looking for Chicago-style Pizza? Emmett’s On Grove has you Covered in Greenwich Village

Emmett Burke has been known for his Chicago-style deep dish spot (Emmett’s) on MacDougal Street since 2013 but he’s ready to expand with newly opened Emmett’s On Grove. The new pizza joint will feature Chicago’s thin, tavern-style pies in plain cheese, a make-your-own version, or the aptly named ‘Hot Poppy’ (pepperoni, red onions, and jalapeños topped with a paprika ranch dressing). For the uninitiated, Chicago’s tavern-style pizza actually predates the deep dish style and features a cracker-thin crust that's usually square-cut and often loaded with fennel-heavy sausage. Guests can also expect to find meatballs, chicken parm, shrimp cocktail, pappardelle bolognese, and twice-baked potatoes with bacon and sour cream, among other dishes. You can find Emmett’s On Grove at 39 Grove Street near Bleeker Street.
