The menu changes seasonable with a core of staple recipes. Dinner last week was a gorgeous heirloom tomato salad, followed by Ox tail "jam" on crostini with crumbled blue cheese. The bartenders are genuine mixologists. It is always adventurous... More

A truly great place for dinner in Albany. Staff is great and they also got a nice patio for outside dining. We really liked every dish we had, the Rabbit Terrine is amazing. We would go again if we're around Albany.

As frequent diners at NWB, summer seems to be when they are at their best. We usually order a half a dozen assorted appetizers and course it.... Everything was awesome. We love the changing menu and trying what is new along with some favorites. Rarely disappointed.

Easily my favorite restaurant in Albany--I thrive with the ever-changing specials, the strong staples, the high energy and the close quarters. Reminds me of a Manhattan restaurant.

I go to NWM half a dozen times a year, dinner with friends, family, dates. I love the seasonal menu and the drinks are outstanding. The noise level at times is too high to hold a normal conversation. I don't know how they could remedy this- but it does t stop me from going!

I love this restaurant. I bring everyone who comes to visit for a meal here. The food is interesting, locally sourced and so good. It also has my favorite feature in a restaurant - something for everyone (meat eater, vegetarian, and vegan). The chef, Ric Orlando, is also not afraid of spice! It is so refreshing to find a place... More

I travel to Albany quite a bit and always look forward to this restaurant. This is a farm to table restaurant and the Chef likes to inject a Korean spin to some of the dishes which make it quite interesting. I love the Korean steak and cheese lettuce wraps which also incorporate kimchee. Just had the daily special ceviche of... More

We just had a fantastic dining experience here last weekend and highly recomment this restaurant to anyone in the Albany area. The food was great from the appetizers to the dessert. Here are the details: We ordered the blackened stringbeans and the pork belly for apps. Both were delicious. The stringbeans had a kick but came with a very good... More

Excellent food, especially for vegetarians. Order the seitan wings, shrimp with fat noodles, or their signature burgers! Excellent ambiance!

Third time at New World. First time enjoyed. Second time very disappointed, left prior review. We got out of the Spectrum with friends and went to eat. Friends wanted to go New World. We went reluctantly. Veggie tapas plate was meh, we left a lot on the platter. New World Pizza was overwhelmed by the Romano, with little taste of... More
