Restaurant Review

The Village Green is a popular Ridgewood restaurant offering very good New American Cuisine with a European influence.


The location is on a corner in the center of town in an old charming building. The ambiance is casual, cozy and romantic, with soft lighting and lends itself to quiet conversation.


Chef Kevin Portscher, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and formerly chef de cuisine at Latour, is known for his cold fish presentation and for his commitment to using fresh, locally sourced produce in his seasonal new American, European influenced menu.


The menu is seasonally changing and is offered as either ala carte or as a five course tasting menu.


The service is friendly and knowledgeable; tends to be slower on busy weekends


The Village Green Restaurant is child friendly with a kids menu..
