Walk over to one of the most popular restaurants in the West Village—The Little Owl
. (P.S.: Ask the concierge at the Mondrian or Mandarin to help you score a reservation—it has just 28 seats.) Chef Joey Campanaro's American-Mediterranean cuisine is simple, hearty, and absolutely delicious—order the gravy meatball sliders (it's his grandmother's recipe), homemade ricotta cavatelli, and the pork chop—and look out for frequent celeb diners like Andy Samberg and Kristen Wiig.
