So, love this restaurant for the rich, unashamedly earthy approach to dining. The polenta and mushroom appetizer is a perfectly balanced, deeply savory dish that is absolutely high calorie and wonderful. Next stop? Why, the whole roast suckling pig special with a cracklin’ rib. Intensely and wonderfully rustic, don’t expect to diet here. Old world charm that is not an act.

We have dined at Peasant numerous times in the past when visiting New York and it still remains one of the best restaurants in New York. The chef is one of the few who still cooks in the kitchen every night. The food is Italian with many traditional southern Italian dishes. Peasant also has an extensive wine list from the various regions in Italy. This restaurant is not to be missed on any visit to New York.

The Wild Boar Ragu was excellent. Pizza was good. Nice wine list. Bread was good albeit a slight bit too blackened of crust.

This was fabulous meal.
The restaurant is cozy and spacious. They have nice bar and lounge where we had a drink before dinner. You can observe the partially open kitchen with wood burning oven from the dining room.
We started with burata, razor clams and spicy octopus. Than I had risotto with truffles, my friends got steak paire, whole sea bream and lamb chops, with side of steamed brocoli rabe. Everything was exceptional!!!! Gosh we were full and happy before the desert... but we couldn’t skip it. We shared panna cotta, and bread pudding with home made fig and honey ice cream. Delishhhhhhhhhh
Service was super friendly and super helpful. Always there when needed!
This restaurant is open almost 17(!) years...
We’re gonna be back for sure! Can’t wait

Trained down from Midtown to this restaurant recommended by a friend. The train ride was worth every uncomfortable moment to get there.

The ambiance inside was totally enhanced by the coolest restaurant kitchen ever which is very visible to the patrons. I only took my eyes off the kitchen while eating the delicious food created in that kitchen.

So if like unique earthy kitchens and some of the best food in Nolito this is THE place for you. Thanks for being open.
