Coincidentally, Market Table is owned by Mikey Price, the former chef from the Harrison who later opened The Mermaid Inn (where we went on Wenedsday night). We had no idea. It has been around since 2007, so this is yet another spot we missed over the years. The food is just simple farm to table fare. The portions are quite large and we went with hardy steak and lamb shank. The word is the fish is outstanding. Our meal was uncomplicated, savory and delicious. We also had a full meal the following day with the leftovers!
The atmosphere is very warm and rustic. Like most W Village restaurants, the space is tight even though it is unusually large for the area. The walls are huge windows looking out onto Carmine and Bedford Sts. in the heart of the village. The bar looks like an inviting spot for a glass of great wine. The wine list was quite extensive. We could not help but note that the crowd was not young. Generally, people were our age or older. I guess that means it’s over in terms of ‘hip’ but stays booked because of the great food and service.
