Back Forty West

70 Prince St. New York, NY 10012 | Soho | 212-219-8570

Location Description:

Cozily inhabiting the former Savoy space on a quiet corner in Soho, this restaurant, owned by Peter Hoffman, follows local harvests to produce true, seasonal cooking. Chef Shauna Pacifico turns out generous and nourishing plates like a kale and escarole salad with the big leaves softened on the grill. The casual, walk-in atmosphere makes the space an equally comfortable setting for New Yorkers to sit down for a fried chicken lunch, as it does for tourists visiting nearby boutiques to pop in for a burger. The homey décor, especially upstairs where the walls hang with crooked illustrations, adds to the friendly vibe. Though the menu changes often, diners can usually expect the kitchen to produce delicious, thoughtful fare.
