NYC Restaurant Opening: West 3rd Common Brings Upscale Gastro Pub Fare to NoHo


West 3rd Common (AMP3 PR‘s newest client!)  is the latest addition to Manhattan‘s NoHo district. The restaurant is an elevated version of owner Dan Warren‘s older venture, the popular East Village bar Common Ground.

“Like the East Village location, West 3rd Common maintains the cozy appearance of a 19th century library, with shelves full of leather-bound books, crystal chandeliers, and red velvet couches.  We’ve also kept our signature board game selection. What we’ve added is a menu that goes far beyond your typical pub fare,” says Warren. Indeed, pub fare doesn’t come close to describing the New American menu, which includes Duck Sliders (with kim chi and sweet hoisin), Pan Seared Sea Scallops (with orange pepper coulis and arugula citrus salad), and Build-Your-Own Grilled Cheese.

For their weekend brunch, West 3rd Common boasts an all-you-can-drink special for only $20. Favorite brunch selections include the Southwest Benedict, Spicy Fried Chicken and Waffles, and French Toast with Strawberries, Blueberries, and Chocolate Chips. Twenty dollars buys you a brunch entree and unlimited bloody marys, mimosas, and screwdrivers!

The gastro pub menu is crafted by Chef David Scott Walker, a former F.C.I. student who showcases his southern roots at West 3rd and boasts that he makes one of NYC’s best burgers: “We use a special burger blend and a rather uncommon technique of steaming the burger, rather than grilling it. Steaming it makes it super juicy, even when it’s cooked well done. And our blend of toppings combines all the right flavors. It IS the best burger in the city.”

Another highlight at West 3rd Common is their unbeatable happy hour specials: $3 draft beers, $4 well drinks and wine, and $5 cosmos and appletinis (from 4-8pm, every day).

Whether you’re looking for an affordable yet chic downtown restaurant to take your date, a warm, inviting lounge to play scrabble with your friends, or an unpretentious after-work happy hour spot, West 3rd Common has something for everyone.

To celebrate its opening, West 3rd Common is offering new patrons a free plate of its signature, mouth-watering garlic fries and a free pint of beer or glass of wine. To take advantage of the limited-time promotion, mention the code word “wheaten terrier” to your server on your next visit! Promo expires March 31, 2010.
