Concierge.com's insider take:
Named after a traditional Basque stew of ham, egg, peppers, and onions (of which it serves a fine rendition), Piperade is a bit like its namesake: a little French, a little Spanish, and all good. With its rustic-chic decor (wooden floors, bold art, and a singles-jammed communal table), the place somehow manages to be both cozy and hip. The wine list, with categories like "Bordelaise types," is approachable and fun, and the shareable menu features simple, hearty dishes like bacalao (cod fritters) and a warm terrine of sheep's milk cheese and ham.
Open Mondays through Fridays 11:30 am to 3 pm and 5:30 to 10:30 pm, Saturdays 5:30 to 10:30 pm.
