Ric and team continue to keep the quality high and the choices unique

new world is not a meat and potatoe restaurant, as its name suggests. be ready for creative combinations of foods and flavors. i am one who relishes this. local ingredients rule. the menu is fun to peruse. no hurry here. small bar and bar area where a single diner might feel more comfortable. independent movie theatre three doors down. off...

We enjoy our experience here at this neighborhood bistro...whether for a meal of small plates or a full dinner. The menu is interesting and unique for Albany. We have also ordered from the catering menu and were pleased. Always fun and fresh desserts as well!

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary here and couldn't have been happier with the service, ambiance, and cuisine. We both ordered appetizers (beet infused hummus, and roasted pork belly) and I had the smoked gouda stuffed meatloaf wrapped in bacon in gravy and a maple glaze... how could it get any better? Well, it did with their own cheescake... More

I could literally write this post using four characters-WOW! The menu was hard to choose from because everything sounded amazing. It ended up tasting as amazing as they described each item.

This is a 5 star place for food! Such a varied menu with offerings from all over the world . Beautifully prepared . Fabulous service, drinks, great bar. Huge wine and beer list. The place is way off the beaten path. Need a car, or taxi. Very popular. In a residential area. Plenty of parking. Very casual . Smallish inside.... More

Each and every time I go, this place is consistently great. Whether it's just to sit at the bar with friends for cocktails and apps, or enjoying a meal on their outside patio, the flavors here are nothing short of amazing. And intense. some things more than others like their awesome Purple Haze Shrimp. Influences here are Asian, but that's... More

I have always enjoyed going to the New World Bistro. The menu is creative and the food is consistently excellent. The Bartender ( I think it is Nick) is great and always make you feel welcomed. Our server was excellent as well but since there seemed to be about 3-4 people involved in serving our table is seemed a little... More

When my daughter asked me, where I would like to have dinner on my birthday, I suggested this restaurant, as I had heard favorable comments about it. I had the Korean salmon and was surprised when the waitress asked how I wanted it done. Glad I said medium, as this chunky piece of fish was delicious cooked to this degree... More
