Quietly sited on a quaint, tree-lined block, this charming eatery is the prototypical "great little place in the Village." Few restaurants have such broad appeal or can cater to as many diners whims. Want to eat outdoors? Try one of two outdoor terraces. Need to shake off the winter chill? A fireplace will warm your bones. Long to catch up with a few good friends? The intimate, stone-lined, wood-beamed rooms are conversation- and linger-friendly, and the eclectic, market-fresh menu surely encourages diners to stay awhile. Each season brings a few new gems, like meltingly delicate ravioli stuffed with goat cheese, dappled with walnuts and laced with chunks of summer beets, or a char-grilled salmon winterized with hearty white beans. When it comes to cozy neighborhood spots with a good, solid, crowd-pleasing menu, The Place is—pun intended—indeed the place to go.
