Benjy Levit has been serving some of the most creative modern American cuisine in the city since 1985. The Village location of Benjy's is remarkably small, all the more so because of the open kitchen and bar that anchor one end of the restaurant, but that's a part of its charm. The kitchen never seems to fail, and dishes rotate on a seasonal basis. The house-cured corned beef sandwich is not to be missed, and neither are any of the thin-crust pizzas from the wood-burning oven. Best entrée? The crunchy chicken - it's unbelievably good comfort food.
