Unique and sure to please!

This was my 3rd visit in 6 months...and I will return any time I am in Albany, NY. The dishes are always fresh, seasonal, and wonderfully prepared. Some of the seating is a bit tight inside, but the food is worth it. During the summer I ate outside (approximately 6-8 tables available.) The Dinner... read more

You generally never order meatloaf anywhere... because you risk it being terrible. However, I have a cumin allergy, and this was one of the dishes that didn't have cumin in it. OH my word, it was so good. This meatloaf is wrapped in BACON and stuffed with gouda! All I can say is... you have to go here, and you... More

We have eaten at New World many times and never been disappointed. The eclectic menu offers choices for everyone, fro our veggie relatives, to our 8 year old granddaughter to old carnivore me. Ric Orlando is a genius chef and the ambience of his Albany restaurant is fun and sophisticated at the same time. A local gem!

This was one of my favorite restaurants. Chef Ric Orlando needs to spend time at this establishment. The food is hit or miss lately, and the service leaves something to be desired. Chef Orlando recently appeared on a food show competition and highlighted his potato latkes. I ordered them for breakfast and they were over cooked and I could not... More

I love eat in a restaurant that pushes the envelope deliciously--especially in a suburb of Albany. The foods go beyond the Tri-City Area for sure--I had some delicious Cuban pernil (pork) and one of hardest things to do is choose from the great variety of dishes that span the globe and food preferences. The service and helpings are both grand,... More

Great food, ample parking. Excellent wine selection. Tough to get a reservation but we sat on the patio and it was pleasant and quiet. Great attentive service

This restaurant is a lovely little bistro but is truly for the Vegans and Gluten-free diners of Albany. The menu is extensive but has such a variety of Asian, Latin and Middle Eastern fusion that our taste buds were totally confused. Those of us who are not vegans have a tough time finding something palatable there. The food we did... More

Came in for dinner after a long day at the hospital. The atmosphere was perfect. Cozy and friendly. The food was exceptional. We especially enjoyed the cheese plate. The small dish choices were intriguing but my husband's choice of ropa vieja was the best entree. Shared a delicious plum sorbet for dessert. The beer choices were great.

Went to see "Burnt" today. Excellent movie. So inspired, I decided to go to Ric Orlando's New World Bistro Bar for dinner. It was amazing as always! I had: 1)Beef heart taco (really good-spicy) 2)Blood sausage w/smoked pumpkin crema, toasted pumpkin seeds and black garlic gastrique (AMAZING!!!) 3)Saigon street style calamari with cucumber noodles, peanut sauce and chile garlic sauce...
