We each ordered two of the small plate/appetizers. Our favorites: Mac and Cheese, Smoked Mushroom and Arugula Salad, Smoked Chicken and Pimento Cheese salads, Sliders, Fish Tacos. Each of these was phenominal and there were no leftovers. Also ordered fried oysters, Beef tenderloin and new potatoes, and Tuna with crispy Kale. These three were also good, just not quite as...

Pros = Open on Monday Night, one of few in area, and and at least one other was smoke-filled; artful decor; some of food offerings, i.e., arugula salad, brussels sprouts, + sliders Cons = Noisy atmosphere (contrary to mood trying to set); crab cakes were fishy ( a first for us! ); drinks menu w/o organization or prices (which wouldn't...

We stopped in during the Cooper Young festival. They were very crowded, but we got a table in the back. We had fish tacos and a panini type sandwich that were both very-very good. We felt like there was a limited and special menu for the festival day. This had to one of their, if the THE, busiest days of... More

Great place to meet, eat and enjoy! Specialty cocktails are great, and all of their small plate food is GREAT. Don't miss the Brussel sprouts (I know, I didn't like them either, until this place!) and the desserts, too.

Alchemy appears to be a nice place to have a drink, but I was having dinner, and just wasn't impressed. The restaurant has a confusing menu, dish portions are too small, and the prices are too high. In addition, the furnishings in the restaurant are inexpensive and uncomfortable. It's just lacking consumer value. However, one a positive note, the food... More

Fantastic place for the more sophisticated drinker. Great selection of cocktails and Park is pretty much the best bartender. The food is good. Not smoky. Room to breathe. Come here when you've grown out of the crammed dive bars.

A fun place in Midtown. Don't make a special trip but if you are in Midtown you should stop in. The wine list is decent. I asked for a dirty martini and they forgot the olive juice. Instead of remixing the drink they poured the dirt in the drink. Any martini drinker and bartender should know it should be remade.

My husband and I along with our 2 college age daughters had dinner here in a weekend night and we thoroughly enjoyed it! The atmosphere is very lively and the food was delicious. I recommend having a reservation and be prepared to valet park. Great place for dinner in a special night!
