For the West Village, Pennyfeathers is one of a dying breed known as the neighborhood hangout. Food isn’t the point here; you come for a warm welcome, a cozy atmosphere, and an unhurried conversation after a tense day at work. The late local Republican activist Angela Boone opened Pennyfeathers as a modest café in 1974. Under daughter Gabrielle today, it’s a haven on a strip where restaurants seem to literally fly by night. Breakfast attracts mostly lone regulars. At dinner, the wood-paneled room fills with quiet couples and chatty groups from nearby gay bars who dutifully eat what’s on their platesóbe it meatloaf or chicken parmigiana. None of it's remarkable, but then again, there are plenty of other things to talk about.
