This place has great atmosphere and of course, if you didn't already know, is an awesome place to see films. This however was the first time I'd actually had a full meal there and I have to admit I was a tad disappointed. The menu...is nicely varied but it's one of those places where you kind of play roulette with whether the main dishes require sides or not. As it turned out, my partner's King Salmon was ample but my deconstructed Moussaka was a ham-steak size slab of Moussaka in sauce and that's it. Complicating this further, the sides are interesting (the Shishito Peppers were delicious) but they don't easily pair with the mains and I ended up having the Cauliflower Cakes with my Moussaka which was tasty but not a great combo ... the wait staff like many in New York are not exactly helpful when it comes to these decisions which is why I rated it the whole experience Average and not Very Good. The flavours were solid but the meal was a bit of a jumble.More

Enjoy the art house films in a setting where there is a reverence for film. Be ready to choose your seats before entering the theatre. A great date spot; enjoy the dinner inspired by the canteens of 1940s Hollywood, with excellent waitstaff! The cocktails are...enthusiastically shaken behind a very authentic bar. This is the Metrograph's second birthday, and I hope this experience will be available for a long time to come!More

Gorgeous dining room, great service, and the best steak tartare dish I have had in ages. The lamb with mint skordalia was heavenly and the lavender cocktail was perfect. Will definitely return.

My daughter and I met with a local friend for brunch (as you can book a table). Lovely bright space, excellent bloody Mary and good plate of smoked salmon.

We are one of the lucky ones to have a restaurant/movie theatre walking distance from our home. Thanks to the owners for saving this old building and turning it into a nice venue. We arrived promptly at 9am for breakfast and we were the only...ones during the whole time we were there. I had the egg sandwich and it was one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've ever had. I would have warmed up the feta cheese in it if it was me. The espresso drinks were so good that we both had seconds. Nice atmosphere, quiet, good value. Thank you.More

The cafe is quiet in the late am, which I give high marks at the start. The food is great, service gracious and friendly which means alot in a crowded place like NYC. I've not seen a film yet there, but their selections are fantastic,...often with Q &A's from independent film directors and actors. Love the restaurant and their food is really unique. I went to brunch. It's a new venue,More

A friend recommended this and it was a real disappointment. It was loud, the food expensive and mediocre and what ticked me off the most was expensive wine served in tumblers. There is a reason for stemware....but they have not figured that out. The waitstaff...looks like schoolgirls who forgot to put on their plaid skirt and are not well trained. Not going back.More

Metrograph Commisary is definitely worthwhile for pre or post movie dining. The staff is wonderful, especially Gabrielle. We arrived way short of time due to subway difficulties, but they still managed to serve us delicious food before our movie began. The pumpkin soup with hibiscus...and bee pollen was delicious & the mac and cheese side creamy and just the right size. The Jack Lemmon salad and side of sweet potatoes were right on as well. We will be back, next time with plenty of time to have a full meal.More

Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up
at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from
the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many
bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where
