Annisa n. 1. An Arabic term for women. 2. A Sanskrit term for food.
Ok, to the point.
Annisa n. 1. A new West Village restaurant that’s a team project between Anita Lo and her partner Jennifer Scism, both veterans of Chanterelle and Bouley. 2. An 850-square-foot space, plinked in the heart of the West Village and dotted with details like giant purple pom pom flowers, a crema marfil marble bar, and a minimalist airy feel. 3. The latest spot to conjure up buzz for both its slamming wine list (comprised mostly of female vintners), and a menu that caters to both the dainty eater (slices of raw tuna with spiced cod roe and pink radishes, zucchini blossoms stuffed with chickpeas), as well as to the hardcore carnivore (sauteed sweet breads with morels and pea shoots, roasted beef with baby vegetables and bone marrow persillade).
And who said all chicks eat like birds.
Annisa, 13 Barrow Street, West 4th Street and Seventh Avenue South
