Sweet Revenge

Eat, drink and be merry at Sweet Revenge! Located in the heart of the West Village, this charming restaurant and dessert bar is a go-to spot for an impressive date, or simply a night out with friends. The atmosphere is intimate and inviting, thanks to European-style windows open to street, white-tiled walls, and dark wood. Don’t miss the drunken Thai noodles, savory rosemary and jarlsberg belgium chicken and waffles, or the “El Gigante Burrito,” each perfectly paired with an imported beer or wine. And of course, as the name suggests, you can’t leave without partaking in one (or three) of their signature cupcakes. Our pick? The “Pure,” with a Mexican vanilla buttercream frosting and it’s beer pairing, the “Kwak,” a caramel-flavored Belgium beer, served in a glass that’s as badass as the beer itself. Stay current on their happy hour, up-to-date on specials, and “taste the good life” at Sweet Revenge.
