This Is The Most Unassuming Spot In The West Village
The unassuming Malatesta Trattoria is casual, cozy and so reliably good. Among the special touches that will charm you are the handwritten menus, the pleasantly cheap bottles of wine and the simple, welcoming interior. It’s good for big groups or small ones and perfect for when you just want a good meal without any fuss. Stop in for an early dinner and bring cash; everything is perfect here.
The night is still young! Keep the energy going and visit The Stonewall Inn—site of the 1969 riots sparking the gay rights movement. Open until 4 a.m., you and your person will have plenty of time to bask in history and affection of one another. Hit this spot on a Friday or Saturday night dance party or drag show.
