In the heart of Nolita, Peasant mixes the upscale hipness of downtown with the romantic tradition of Little Italy. The menu features everything that makes Italian food so darn good, like pizza with hot chiles and soppressata, gnocchi, and lamb with polenta. The main dining room, accented with painted brick walls, hanging indoor plants, and candle-lit tables, will woo you before you have a chance to see the subterranean wine room, which looks straight out of a rustic Italian barn.
