Cititour Review:
The West Village is all of the sudden one of the hottest destination spots around. From the opening of href="http://www.cititour.com/NYC_Eats/listings/view_details.php?eats_id=2970">Morandi, to the little gem they call href="http://www.cititour.com/NYC_Eats/listings/view_details.php?eats_id=2586">The Little Owl, and the recently reinvented, and quite exclusive, href="http://www.cititour.com/NYC_Eats/listings/view_details.php?eats_id=1178">Ye Waverly Inn, this part of town is hopping. Which brings us to a spot that some may say helped get the ball rolling. The Chow Bar on West 4th Street continues to lure a stylish crowd with its sake sangria and watermelon martinis, laying the path for others to follow while still going strong itself.

I recently found myself at the bar sipping a potent rum drink called a Typhoon ($10), which resembles a mojito, while nibbling on crispy spring rolls ($8) with a red chile dipping sauce and a side of spicy lobster fried rice ($12), with large chunks of lobster, that could easily serve as a meal. Other items on the menu worth noting; barbecued spare ribs ($10) with a honey plum glaze, Szechuan Black Angus steak ($23) cooked in a soy chile sauce, seared tuna ($19) with a plum vinaigrette, and Mandarin duck pancakes (Sundays) served with a cucumber papaya salad.

But it's really not the food that brings people here. It's the good vibe you get the minute you walk in the door.
