Hidden Gem: The Leroy House

Hidden Gem: The Leroy House


Located in the heart of  West Village, The Leroy House is the cozy neighborhood hidden gem you have been looking for.


Owned by couple Kim Nguyen and Bill Block, the charming restaurant located on the bottom floor of a townhouse features an approachable and well-thought out American menu by Chef David Werner. Some of his staple dishes include Steamed Mussels (served with Calabrian chilies, cockles, rouille and sourdough) and Leroy’s Cheddar Burger topped with house-made pickles, a customer favorite.


“We set out to be a neighborhood restaurant that reflects our love of the West Village,” says Block. “On the corner of our block is one of the many beautiful streets, Leroy Street, and we are on the ground floor of a magnificent and uniquely West Village townhouse. So, for us, ‘The Leroy House’ made perfect sense.”


The pastas are all made in-house, and fresh seasonal ingredients are highlighted in every dish. Standouts include the Crispy Duck Confit, Grilled Scottish Salmon and Bone-In Steak for Two. Save room for dessert- all are homemade and worth the calories.



The restaurant itself is classic, yet sleek with its vintage European tiles, long marble bar, dark wood tables and antique-style sconces. The centerpiece of the dining area is the detailed hand painted wallpaper imported from France, surrounding airy picture windows that open to the ever-changing gardens.



In the warm months, diners can people watch and dine alfresco on Hudson Street, and brunch is offered on the weekends. The happy hour menu is extensive, offering affordable bites from 4:30-7pm daily.


The Leroy House is open Mondays from 4:30-9pm, Tuesday & Wednesday 4:30-10pm, Thursday – Saturday 5-11pm and brunch on weekends from 11-3pm at 430 Hudson Street. For more information please visit
