Worth the Expense

Delicious, great quality and well prepared. Interesting, innovative vegetarian dishes. Yummy juices and smoothies. I suggest the veggie burger, it's one of the best I've ever had. Also try the Green Milkshake! It's a bit pricey, but such is healthy food these days..

While the fare here is healthful and tasty (albeit no bargain), the server gave me my requested tap water in a (trendy) Mason/Ball jar that had an mistakable and potentially dangerous sharp edge. When prompted, the waiter replaced the glass. However, the water had a pronounced metallic/chlorinated taste. He said all customers complain of it, and the only thing I... More

Saying the decor is unique might be an understatement. Very vibrant colours that almost reminds me of some place in the Bahamas. Gordon Ramsay would rip everything out and remodel.. However, I feel that it's of no importance. You feel welcome and it's peaceful. Very far from trendy raw-food venues which is a relief. I went for brunch and had... More

My partner and I went to Organic Grill twice on our recent trip to New York (dinner and lunch), as it was very close to our apartment. Both times, we received friendly service, although on the second visit (Sunday lunch), our waiter seemed run off his feet, and our service suffered as a consequence. The meals were quite slow to...

Highly recommended if you enjoy delicious, fresh, seasonal organic food! We visited in December and the best seasonal offering was the most amazing mulled wine in a fresh cored apple! My new favourite cafe in New York!

One of my favorite NYC vegan eateries. Great tasting with lots of variety and good prices. The staff is very personable and knowledgeable about the what's available. We go as often as we can when in NY.

Small, great find on the lower east side. The slider sampler was good, the buns appear to have been homemade, and the greens were garlicky and delicious. The tempeh bacon (side) and the peanut pie were just so so.

I came here with a friend for a quick dinner bite to eat. everything is vegan or vegetarian - whatever it really wasn't my kind of spot. I must say though that it really was tasty. They used fresh ingredients to make pretty unique dishes which kept me satisfied as we continued our adventure. I might not be back again... More

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
