Take some time away from your own kitchen
Every now and then, even the most talented and devoted home cook wants to escape the kitchen tasks associated with preparing and cooking a meal or two. Thankfully there are many dining options in Manhattan suitable for varying tastes. Take a train or walk over to the West Village and enjoy a delicious meal at Out of the Kitchen!
Out of the Kitchen! is at 420 Hudson Street in the West Village.
While at this venue, you and your guests will feel comfortable with the consensus to leave the cooking to the skilled hands of the restaurant's kitchen staff. During your visit, your immediate tasks are simply to bask in the homey décor and ambiance, and catch up with your family's latest goings on.
Among their delicious dinner options are Puglian-type orechiette pasta, which in Italian, translates to small ears. Aptly named due to its shape, your orechiette pasta dish comes with broccoli rabe and sausage. Slivers and sprinklings of various cheeses complete the entrée.
Leave some room for dessert, such as a chocolate pudding parfait, tiramisu, brownies, cakes, cupcakes and more. The venue is also known for its custom cakes, should you need one for your special events.
