It’s notoriously hard for a restaurant to survive on Bleecker Street, but Baker & Co. has a lot going for it. The space is generic, but charming—exposed brick, a nice bar, some trendy art—nothing spectacular, but it's totally pleasant for a casual dinner out with friends or a first date. The outdoor garden is particularly lovely and shockingly quiet. Even better: Ingredients are fresh and often locally sourced, and the dishes are reasonably priced. Start your meal with the burrata appetizer, which comes with artichokes, greens, and bottarga, or the light fava-bean salad with snap peas. The real standout here is the charred squid with smoked paprika, capers, and rosemary. Pastas like gnocchi with foraged mushrooms are pleasant, as are the oven-baked pizzettas. Baker & Co. isn’t trying to be inventive or daring with its food, but if you live nearby, you’ll want to come back regularly to sit in the garden, order a pasta that costs less than $20, and drink lots of wine.
