Everything was great. I wish I lived closer so I could try it again. Soooo yummy! Hint: Try the blackened green beans and any of the curry dishes.

NWBB is my top choice every time when I want to impress friends or family who come to town. The menu is exciting, eclectic, and the restaurant has options for those with special dietary restrictions (gluten free, vegetarian, vegan). In addition to an a menu that changes seasonally, there are nightly specials that reflect the chef's (Ric Orlando) amazing creativity... More

Busy place with great food. Menu works for us especially because of the great vegetarian options as well as fantastic choices for meat eaters. Bar area is small. There is an odd bench people sit on waiting for tables so try not to get seated near it. You'll have people staring at you eating. Actually had a man comment that... More

This place is a wonderful option particularly for vegan and vegetarian diners, although there is a lot on the menu for carnivores as well. The menu is unique and eclectic, and the décor of the restaurant is cozy and relaxed. I have never had a bad meal there, and have tried numerous things on the menu, including the seitan "chicken"...

Let me start by saying there were six of us at 7 PM on a busy Saturday night. A time frame when many restaurants let service slip a little due to a crowd, high turnover etc. Not true at the New World Bistro. The service was outstanding. From the attentive, friendly professional bartender where we stood and had a pre-dinner... More

Ate at this restaurant this evening -excellent atmosphere and good food - varied menu though not sure about the baked Brussels! Think about including bubblensqueak with Brussels on your menu. Attentive staff, excellent selection of beers definitely worth a visit.

The New World Bistro is an amazing place to join friends to talk, drink and eat. We met up with two other couples, one couple from Denver, Co., and the other from Burden Lake, NY. We weren't rushed. We had plenty of time to order drinks, select our foods, and eat. The food is amazing. Every dish was a work... More

We celebrated my sister-in-law's birthday here. Our party included the guest of honor, her son, me, and my husband. The menu wasn't really big, but they had some delicious appetizers, large and small entrees, snack type options, nice wine and drink choices and luscious desserts. The food was fresh and delicious and the service could not have been better. Overall,... More

This was a great find! The NWBB has a broad-ranging menu with something for everyone -- from small plates, pizza and burgers to full sized entres. Everything was delicious. We ordered a brussel sprout appetizer/small plate that was absolutely wonderful -- there were six of us dining and we all thought it was great! And the beer choices were great.... More

Stumbled upon this place after stopping off at Albany on our US tour. We picked Albany as our stop off randomly on our travels, then ended up at New World Bistro on the advice of our hotel who told us that everyone that goes loves it. We did too. We had a lot of fun with fellow customers as apparently... More
