You may think the term "American Brasserie" has become more than overused in NYC's restaurant scene, but the West Village's new hotspot Charlemagne is anything but tired. From the owners of Sel Et Gras, the eatery culls inspiration from King Charlemagne, as well as the Greenwich Village historical district. Our favorite menu highlights include the raw bar (think oysters, lobster, and more), and the delicious Leeks Vinaigrette.
Mirror the laid-back neighborhood feel of the space with your favorite shorts and flats, but glam up your outfit with a pop of color. And don't forget to top it all off with a bangle!
