Wonderful outdoor space. Great food and wonderful wine list and cocktails. Service was a bit slow at times but understandable given the complexity of covid. Will define truly be back to this gem !

Outstanding service top to bottom! Management was so gracious about last minute reservation changes. Our server Heracles was knowledgable and charismatic, and able to make recommendations for my vegan guests. Ate the special pasta, a squid ink spaghetti with lobster and shrimp scampi. Unbelievably delicious! Chef Greg and his team know what they are doing. Live music by Maddy Ruff was so great to dine to. The tables properly spaced out on the treelined street made the experience feel so "normal". A really special dinner all around.
Thank you Peasant!

Forgione and team have done the seemingly impossible: they took over a beloved NYC institution and managed to preserve its character while injecting their own style, AND they are doing it doing a pandemic. I hope they continue to survive and then fully thrive once things return to a semblance of normalcy. This restaurant should continue on for at least another twenty years. Excellent food and drink and good vibes all around.

Marc Forgione and his team deliver yet again with Peasant. After having spent many years going to Forge, as well as Khe-Yo and his steakhouse, we were so excited to try Peasant. Much like Forge, Peasant is inviting....feeling like you’re in someone’s Italian living room, but also making it feel special. Each bite of food was also something special - from the pastas to the meats and the wine selection, everything was delicious. I also highly recommend any dish with the wild boar.

the minute you walk into this restaurant you know that you are going to have a terrific time. The ambience is one that is really re-created in New York City. The talented chef Mark, is at his best. From the delicious pasta dishes, to the mouthwatering apple crisp which is the best we ever had. Enjoy the evening with a great selection of wine. The wait staff is friendly and tries very hard to make your evening perfect! Enjoy

I read the reviews post-Forgione takeover. They were mixed so I gave it a try. The drink glasses - wine and water were filthy. It took FOREVER to get our drinks. The portions are very small - expensive for what they are. We got the beef as one of our dishes - it was fatty. The atmosphere suggests that you will have a rustic, hearty Italian meal. It was more like a fancy (not very good) Italian-ish meal, being consumed in a cabin in the woods. Our waitress was very nice and apologetic about the dirty glasses, etc., but the service was more like you would get in a busy diner (and the place wasn't that busy). Needless to say, I won't be going back. Pity because I loved the old Peasant.

Chef Marc Forgione has taken over Frank DiCarlo and Dulcinea Benson’s much loved restaurant and kept the good - cooking on fires, rustic and sincere Italian cooking- and added the energy of some new dishes and people. We now have another go-to Italian.

Tremendous experience! The decor, atmosphere, lighting, smells and space are just amazing, but pale in comparison to the staff and food! The menu is outstanding and presented in a clean, non-fussy way with tastes that are layered and full of positive surprises. Nothing we had was less than 5 stars and that goes for the staff as well. Front of the house, the bar, wait and bus service was exceptionally warm, even on a busy night, and we felt appreciated and never rushed! Be sure to get here and enjoy an wonderful meal and experience! We’ll be back.... and often!
