84 E. 4th St.

New York, NY 10003


Map & Details>>

Husband and wife Eric Korsh and Ginevra Iverson cooked at the Waverly Inn and Prune, respectively, before taking over this East Village space, where the duo serves fine country-bistro fare between the candlelight and potted herbs. Calliope offers classic charcuterie that has been slightly refined, like the elegant tête de porc, and big, comforting dishes of roast chicken breast on the bone. The chicken comes with a rolled-up cigar of cabbage, stuffed with thigh meat, and the menu includes other old-school touches, like a baba au rhum that's cut at the table. 84 East 4th Street, 212-260-8484, (10003)
