Little Giant – NYC
Tonight, I invited the Meg(h)ans to the Lower East Side for a lot of vino and a little food. That’s usually how it goes with the three of us.
I offered up a couple of my favorites (Frankie’s and Clinton Street Baking Company), but they insisted I needed to venture out. So Meghan played LES hostess and took us to her favorite nook Little Giant.
She’s pretty particular so I knew the food would be good. And when I got there I understood why she knew/loved it. Little Giant is a classic NYC date place: great food, intimate and cozy atmosphere, good wine list, and reasonable prices.
I had no issue taking the place of whatever man had been there before me when I saw a $35 bottle of Malbec and several dishes that made my mouth water.
Although they were out of their “famous” bread and butter, we we accommodated with a chihuahua-sized biscuit that didn’t disappoint. And neither did our choices for dinner.
Overall, I give Little Giant a big thumbs up for date night, but not a MUST for out-of-towners.
(Please excuse the picture, I tried to touch it up a little, but somehow I went too far and there was no salvaging it. Just focus on the food.)
