On Christmas Day, I met some friends at Cotenna Italian Restaurant and Wine Bar in New York’s West Village before going to IFC Center to see the movie Corsage.

I had few expectations, not having frequented many restaurants in that area. The West Village is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods, with narrow, cobblestoned streets winding in various directions. Specific addresses are sometimes difficult to find, but I bravely embarked on the downtown local 1 subway to Houston Street. With my phone in hand in 9-degree weather, I navigated to the inconspicuous Cotenna that is nestled on a small side street. Here are some photos of the restaurant’s exterior and indoor spaces.

Cotenna is known for some of the finest Italian dishes in town and is renowned for its burrata and pasta. They boast a long list of wines and a variety of cocktails. While some wines are costly, their food choices are delightfully affordable. The decor is simple, matching the restaurant’s elegance on a small scale.

I chose the Bietol e Caprio, a Roasted Red Beet dish with herbed goat cheese and a side of Patate Arrosta, also known as Roasted Rosemary Potatoes.

Both dishes were fabulous! The ingredients in the Beet Salad were all fresh, and the roasted potatoes were just right!

I highly recommend Cotenna if you’re in the West Village. The food is delicious, the ambiance relaxing, and the prices are just right!

I may get the lamb chops next time!
