Painfully cute & cozy restaurant in an area you probably don't often venture into. Houseman is located in a little pocket of West Soho between the West Village & Tribeca. It's a jack of all trades restaurant - neighborhood comfort you could frequent several times weekly, take the parents, settle in for a first date. The interior design is clean and understated. Chef/owner Ned Baldwin's menu is very seasonal and changes frequently so you won't get bored to death. They have a large selection of small plates and seafood loaded heavily with vegetables. Think chicory with smoked trout, roasted carrots in tahini cream, or pork sausage with leeks and clams (fuck yes). You'll find a killer Houseman burger with a double patty, cheese, & caramelized onions. I'd honestly go just for the burger.
