Profile

Located on a quiet block of Greenwich Street, Houseman is a true neighborhood spot. The dining room is bright and airy, filled with light wooden tables and oversize windows that open up on to the street. The service is friendly and comfortable, and the varied menu is from a pair of chefs with real pedigrees: Prune vet Ned Baldwin and Marco’s alum Adam Baumgart. The menu changes more or less daily, though dishes can stick around for three days or two months. Of the smallest bites on the menu one night, crunchy fried fava beans and seeded bread with fluffy green butter are tasty to snack on while you’re deciding on entrées like creamy “pearl” cheese with grilled country bread and plump, juicy littleneck clams served alongside butter beans in a flavorful broth. The Long Island fluke is decadently soft and moist and has a straight-from-the-sea saltiness that’ll make you want to lick the plate clean. On the beverage side, there is an approachable wine list, including a particularly interesting, lightly effervescent rosé by the glass that’s ideal for balmy summer evenings. 

Recommended Dishes

Seeded bread, $4; littleneck clams, $16; “pearl” cheese, $14; fluke, $23
