A week ago, I sat down with my laptop in a charming café, “Ciao for Now,” for coffee with blended scents of tea on Greenwich Avenue and West 10th Street. Thirty-five minutes later, I left to meet a friend for dinner at “Rosemary’s” in the understated, casual-style neighborhood of Lower Manhattan. While we waited for our table, we sauntered up to the roof’s elegant garden, where we gazed at the flowers, the pale blue sky, and two sparrow birds flying by.
There is something of an old-world charm on Greenwich Avenue, and if you are strolling along the West Village, you may like to explore these three eateries in the quaint community of New York City.
