We came here on a Sunday right when they opened for brunch. We we the only ones in the place for at least 30 mins. But that didn't change my view of the place. Server was very attentive and pleasant. Food was really good. We did the pre fixe brunch which comes with unlimited mimosa's, which were quite delicious! The inside was very nice, with exposed brick and artistic "graffiti." Faces the street so really good people watching. (My wife claims she saw Willem Dafoe walking by, but I'm not convinced.) It was quite a nice place with the food and service to go with it. Would definitely go back.

SetG is a small, nearly on the street restaurant in the West Village, with attentive staff. A nice wine list and an interesting food menu. The edgy graffiti decor and generous street front view add up to a whole, and favorable, experience. Return visits a must. Even for a wine & frites snack. Do it!

I had been to this newish restaurant twice - once for a drink and once for brunch - and decided to return for a light dinner the other night. The 5 to 7:30 pm happy hour is still going on with a selection of wines at $5 a glass. I had a sparkling from Burgundy which was very good and accompanied a duck rillettes small plate. The rilletes came in a small pot with toast points and cornichons. Rich and tasty. I had a nice off and on conversation with the/an owner who was also working the bar. Some movie crews have been in to shoot scenes. It seems the camera likes the restaurant's decor and ambiance. It's a cool spot committed to a certain authenticity and quality.

Sel et Gras opened this summer on a stretch of 7th Ave south that has mostly mediocre restaurants. It's a small place that has an earthy feel - lots of exposed brick, chalk boards with daily specials etc. The staff is super friendly and cool without the attitude that comes with cool. They are intelligent. It's still finding its crowd since so many New Yorkers were in summer flight when the restaurant opened. The food is GOOD. The menu choices are careful and artfully executed with a preponderance of small plates. WInes have also been carefully chosen. Now that summer has come and gone, I hope the people at Sel et Gras get the following they deserve.
