An unexpected treat. Goodness throughout in an inconspcious location. Microscopic open kitchen. Chaotic environment, caring, skilled and friendly staff. Love it, 100% chance of return.

The airy doughnuts topped with dulce de leche and crispy bacon bits with a scoop of strong coffee ice cream is a must. The cocktails are creative and pair perfectly with the food. Get the head-on prawns and be prepared for a wonderful, delicious, spicy mess. For singles or couples, seats at the bar are recommended to watch the magic... More

The food here is just awesome. Try the tasting menu - its the best value for money: 11 dishes for $50 out of which 9 are savory and 2 are sweet. I've eaten here twice and loved it both times. The second time I was waaaay to full by the 8th course so I think the order of the dishes... More

My brother-in-law recommend Traif for our trip to NY. He made reservations for Friday evening and we were able to get in quickly. We chose to do the chef's selection which was a nice option versus trying to get enough of each plate for everyone. They were happy to accommodate any dietary restrictions (no Tartar due to pregnancy). The bacon... More

Yes it isn't kosher, but wow! We ate outside and loved every single course which they recommended. Some dishes we had to repeat. This is not an inexpensive place, but it is well worth it for a special occasion. We set outside on the covered terrace and it was spectacular in coolness (not too) and privacy. I recommend this highly.

As a prelude to riding the Five Boros bike ride we made a reservation for my wife and family at Traif. Both my sons live in Clinton Hills so it was a short ride to the restaurant. My younger son recommended we try the tasting menu. We asked if the kitchen could stress courses with fish or shellfish and the... More

The small and yes very noisy space belies the friendly and professional service, unique food, (one dish was better than the next) and is an excellent value. That tiny kitchen is amazing. What else could a foodie want?:-)

Wow, amazing place... The food was way more exiting than many michelin star restaurants i've been too. We had the 13-course tasting menu, priced at 45 dollars...!!!! Perfect service, perfect atmosphere, perfect food. Would go back any day.
