THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Calliope Restaurant Review

: A Gallic-accented, rustic restaurant on a busy East Village corner, Calliope doesn’t look like much at first with its typical brasserie design: distressed mirrors, tile floors and wooden tables. But the menu --- cooked up by a chef who is a Waverly Inn alum --- is well executed. Most of the items are simple fare: a nicely roasted chicken, for example, remains juicy. The hot and sour braised lamb neck is ultra tender and the rabbit pappardelle has a meaty, amplified taste that will have you thinking about ordering seconds. But save some room for the baba rhum with whipped cream or the chocolate cake with hazelnut cream. The French wine list has some surprisingly pricey bottles but also a few nice options by the glass that are under $10.
