With two locations one in the East Village and the other in the West Village, Westville boasts an extensive menu of salads soups and main plates. It's extensive menu made me fear the food may not measure up though the space was so inviting I took the risk. The East Village spot located on the corner of East 11th. and Ave. A. is an airy spot with whitewashed walls and a few pieces of local art hanging. Some comfy cushiony seating and a casual environment with good food make Westville very popular with a youngish crowd. I ate here for lunch and enjoyed my gazpacho with avocado for $6, which was tasty. Two vegetable dishes one of grilled lemon asparagus and the other artichoke hearts with parmesan was filling. Larger plates with fish, fries and a salad run from about $16-$18. The sweet fries looked especially good. Brunch here is muy popular with many creative edd dishes including fried eggs with turkey hash, toast and salad for $8.00. Foodwise, the grub is tasty enough with an emphasis on the fresh and brunch is cheap. The bathroom looked like a silver spaceship with silver popcorn walls and a teeny sink, fyi.
