The corner of Bedford Street and Grove Street in the West Village is the site of the fictional home of the F.R.I.E.N.D.S. show characters. At some point in the show every character has lived in one of the 2 apartments in the show.
The ground floor now houses the very popular, cosy (small and a bit close together) Little Owl restaurant which specialises in bold flavoured Mediterranean cuisine and, apparently, is a hot spot for romantic dining, known somewhat ungallantly as 'clinching the deal'. Due to its compactness and popularity reservations are the order of the day.
