The lowdown

Before Gabe Stulman created a restaurant empire, he had Joseph Leonard, an intimate West Village bar specializing in food of the American variety. For breakfast and brunch, there are omelettes, an egg sandwich with manchego and Brussels sprouts, monkey bread, and Stumptown coffee, while lunch and dinner veer into strip steak, mussels, and roast-chicken territory. In other words, don’t expect culinary revelations at Joseph Leonard, but there’s plenty of comfort to go around.
