The vibrant flavors of the Southwest are on full display at The Banty Rooster in the West Village. Hospitality veteran Tronco-De Pierro tapping her husband and Executive Chef, John (formerly of Miss Ada, Rebelle and Metta), to create a welcoming restaurant with white-washed walls, cozy banquettes, full bar and ‘80s and ‘90s artwork inspired by New York City. The menu features snacks and small plates like Fried Chicken Skin with hot sauce and buttermilk dressing, Chicken Meatballs (Albondigas) with herb mojo and confit egg yolk, and Grilled Squid with tomatillo XO and fennel. Entrees include Pan-Roasted Pork Collar with hatch chile, cotija, and pickled onions, Charcoal Grilled Short Rib Steak with ancho barbecue sauce, and Biscochitos with toasted corn ice cream. At the bar, visitors will find bold spirits like tequila, mezcal and rye whiskey. Look for cocktails like the Ginger Jab (choice of mezcal or blanco tequila, honey ginger syrup, and lemon) and Lime Out The Door (lime gin, almond milk, lime, orgeat, green chartreuse, and kaffir lime leaves). "Banty" is short for bantam, a small chicken known for its zeal and tenacity. >>
