Most Instagrammable Restaurants In The West Village

Ask any New Yorker (and aspiring New Yorkers), what their favorite New York neighborhood is, and most will respond with the West Village. The charming, cobblestone streets of the West Village are reminiscent of a time gone by, and it’s one of the only places in the city that still maintains an air of old New York. Naturally, the restaurants in the area are just as beautiful, and worthy of being photographed time and time again. Here are the most Instagrammable restaurants the neighborhood has to offer.

While We Were Young

With a great list of cocktails and stunning, feminine décor, While We Were Young is the spot to have a cinematic, Instagram-approved Girls’ Night Out. An intimate, rosy space, the restaurant offers a diverse menu with highlights including chicken and waffles that’ll leave you ready for Girls’ Night IN. 183 W 10th St

Early mornings with @michelewatches for the launch of their new Sidney Collection! ?

The Elk

An adorable café (as you’d expect, being that this is the West Village) located on Charles Street. The Elk is a great place to relax with a cup of coffee, meet a friend, read, or get some work done. 128 Charles St

Jack’s Wife Freda

Jack’s Wife Freda’s Carmine outpost is a larger version of its Soho spot, but just as incredible. With its American-Mediterranean cuisine, fun decor, bright food and airy space, this is a no-brainer. 50 Carmine St
