The little owl has a strange position in New York — universally hailed as the perfect neighborhood restaurant, it’s one of the hardest tables to get. So chef-owner Joey Campanaro has decided to open it up for lunch. “We have to turn a lot of people away at night,” Campanaro says regretfully. “There’s always people coming in during the day, seeing if they can get in. Now they can.” The restaurant has introduced a full lunch menu, below, and while there are some new dishes on it, regulars will be pleased to know that the signature meatball slider is still there. And that getting in will be easier than at night: Only five tables will be available for lunch reservations.
