We go here often; great place to eat before or after seeing a movie at the Spectrum. There are daily specials, making this a good place to try something different each time. Menu is eclectic, and always has something for vegetarians and vegans. There is a large list of tapas and small plates, offering you the opportunity to be adventurous... More

New World bistro is quite simply one of the best meals in the capital District of New York. The food is rather hard to define, it is a very eclectic menu with something to please everybody. If you're a fan of spicy food there are many delicious options like the purple haze shrimp. The specials are always outstanding. The service... More

This restaurant is a unique offering in downtown Albany right next door to the main independently owned movie theater in the Capital Region. The Chef is well known and offers unique dishes not available in other parts of town. Some dishes are spicy but all are well prepared and delicious. Pricing is reasonable in light of the freshness and unique... More

Whether friends are from NYC,Burlington Vt, Texas or any other state I bring them to New World. The food is eclectic and satisfies my vegan friends as well as my carnivore/gourmand friends. The food is very well prepared and locally sourced. I often see the chefs shopping at the Troy farmers market. A true local treasure

We live just 20 min. drive from NYC and we have lots of great brunch places in Westchester County but I can't say we have anything similar to the New World Bistro Bar. They give new meaning to "hearty breakfast". The day we went we ate at about 12:00 and I wasn't hungry until 8 hrs. later. First of all... More

I chose this restaurant before I drove 4 hours to Albany. There were so many items on the menu that I were really interesting, and I was able to peruse the menu online days before my trip. I was pretty familiar with the food and had narrowed down my choices. When I got the the restaurant, one of the first... More

I read the other reviews from TripAdvisor and decided to go there....big disappointment!! It's nothing close to what people are saying... We've ordered the Cauliflower nuggets for appetizers, which were OK, but the sauce was extremely spicy and nothing really special. I had the brown rice risotto which is nothing even close to a risotto, it's just some rice mixed... More

The food, service and the entire experience was wonderful. The dishes were well prepared and not your typical fare. If you want an enjoyable experience at a fair price I would highly recommend this establishment
