The Little Owl, NYC

On Friday night I went out with my friend Waynebow to a newly opened eatery called The Little Owl, deep in the saucy West Village. We had some big appetites, and ordered two apps and entrees, which the restaurant artfully split for us to share.

The appetizers were a seared hamachi and duck breast. The duck rocked, and the hamachi was bright and summery. But the rave for this dinner was the pork loin (shown on the right, with the cod)... spice rubbed, with a dark gravy, served over cannoni beans. Sometimes there's a dish worthy of eating the scraps that fall off the plate- the pork loin makes that list. Even the sometimes critical Waynebow left with a smile on his face...
