The Little Owl Restaurant Review

: In spite of the intimate space, large street-view windows offer airy scenes of the West Village neighborhood. In the back of The Little Owl, the windowed kitchen overlooks the wood-toned dining area. The friendly staff weaves among the small tables and side banquette to serve up the boldly flavored, Mediterranean-inspired specialties from chef Joey Campanaro (formerly of the Harrison). Entrées include Basque barbecue strip steak with creamy corn, but it is starters like sunflower sprouts and seeds with Parmesan that will have you cleaning your plate. As the evening wears on, locals dig into generously portioned dishes while sipping from a choice selection of worldly wines and brews.
