New World Bistro was voted as the best in several categories in the local paper so we decided we had to check it out ourselves. We were not disappointed. Our waiter explained the number system on the menu before I ordered the Purple Haze Shrimp - 9 out 10 on their heat scale. They were HOT! So be careful if... More

Family of four cost $135 for vegetarian type food. It's hard to get a table for the weekend. Need to call many days in advance to make a reservation. We were excited to try the vegetarian and vegan foods. It's pricey, most dinner meals start at $17. That is totally fine if it tastes even somewhat good. The beet salad... More

My son and I stopped into the New World Bistro Bar while we had some time to kill. I have heard great things about this little cafe and was curious to discover it. For an appetizer we had Cajun Blackened String Beans. With the mustard that accompanied it, a good start. However, the main meal was a different story. I... More

I was in Albany on business and my colleague took me here based on her recent experiences. Service was very good, food was delicious. I had wings - just plain was good, didn't even need sauce, and the deviled Feather Ridge eggs. Everything was really good. I'll be sure to go back next time I'm up that way.

Had dinner here with a large group. The staff was friendly, accommodating and patient. The menu featured local ingredients with some combinations that were usual but still appealing and delicious. Although I wouldn't bring my kids (they aren't that open minded about vegatables) I would definitely choose to return with adults. Even those who aren't overly adventurous could find something...

There are only a few restaurants in Albany that I visit with some regularity, but this is sure one of them! It feels like a real bistro as soon as you step inside - more akin to a NYC restaurant than one in Albany. Their food ranges from sandwiches and flatbreads to oysters and handmade pasta. My absolute favorite entrée... More
