Sat by the fireplace. unfortunately the goat cheese and artichoke soup which tasted so yummy was full of onions which... read more

I was very excited to get a reservation at this restaurant while visiting for the Westminster Dog show. I had an unexpected health issue that prevented me from eating certain foods. Our waiter Alan was very sympathetic and extremely helpful in suggesting foods that I could eat. He even had the kitchen remake the fries because they usually put garlic... More

Met at friend I haven't seen in awhile for brunch. This was her suggestion and she raved about it. Often, people will tell me something is wonderful and after I try it, I am left wondering if we are even from the same planet. For once, this was not the case. She was spot on. On a very cold day,...

Every thing was so fresh I ate every vegetable on my plate. My husband had a burger, it was delicious as well. We will definitely be back. I would like... More

This is a charming 2 floor cottage on quiet Irving Place. It gets crowded but they were efficient in managing the people waiting outside in the heated enclosed vestibule. Seating is very tight as is typical in NYC, especially in older buildings. The 5 of us especially recommend the blueberry pancakes, sausage, and the special omelette with blue cheese. They... More

in downtown Manhatten! Two stories w outdoor patio on street level. It is what I would picture a quaint French cafe to be like. And the food was great!

The omelettes here are amazing and the atmosphere is warm, relaxing and festive. A great place if you want to enjoy brunch without lots of loud tables participating in AYCD brunch. The line is long, but worth it!

This was by far one of the best places my husband and I have been lately! Cozy, small restaurant with a great atmosphere. We picked it by chance and were more than happy for doing it! Food was great! Try the chicken pot pie, my husband swore he will go back only for this plate! And I ate a great... More

We booked a Friend of a Farmer based on the forums on Tripadvisor as we were wanting an authentic Thanksgiving dinner in a homely environment. Friend of a Farmer was perfect.
