This place is super cute. Beautiful setting and amazing food. My boyfriend is from London, and this was his first time actually having brunch. I'm glad this was the place I chose!

Wound up coming to Pocos by accident when another local haunt was closed for a private party. Poco's win. When eight performers order a dozen items and the evening becomes a tremendous tasting menu, you know you've hit a special place. With mid-ranged prices, it wasn't inexpensive - but it was a taste extravaganza. A modern, unique twist on comfort... More

We went for brunch and it smelt like an old frat basement. Not the best job cleaning/airing out from the night before. Also found air in our food. The servers took care of it quickly and compensated us on the bill but still would probably not recommend this place for brunch. Would still return for just drinks. They also have... More

When we go to New York, we go to the Upright Citizens Brigade. Regardless of its hits and misses it's always fun. Poco is a great after event tapas meal. On the recent visit the Mac and Cheese was awesome. Nothing warms the soul like their pulled park Mac and Cheese. The service is attentive. The beer cold and the... More

Came here with friends, two from England who happen to be in New York same time as me and one from New York who lives elsewhere now. Big coincidence we were all in New York at the same time over Labor Day weekend. The New York native booked this place for Sunday brunch as she'd been before. It's very small,... More

They have a fun Sunday brunch. However, beware, the cost for brunch and drinks is only for 1.5hours. They cut you off after the 1.5 hours. Apparently Sundays is one of their busy days so they won't let you linger around. And the clock starts ticking as soon as they sit you down. So if one person gets there late,... More

Here's my bullet points on this restaurant: *Bring cash for Sunday brunch. No credit cards. We found that out when we got there and had to use the ATM at the tiny grocery store across the street. ARG! *Young crowd. Not for anyone over 40. I was too old for this place. *Very casual. You're eating in a bar. *Very... More

Another one of my favorite go to brunch spots. Love their lobster mac n cheese. We always order it as an appetizer to share along with our entrees. I love that their lobster benedict is served on an arepa (corn flour cake) instead of the normal english muffin. The steak & eggs as well as the french toast is very... More

Great service, great food selection and amazing sangria! This is my favorite spot in NYC. The happy hour special on food and drinks is great, the trivia nights are always fun, and the brunch is amazing! I have attended two parties here for friends and both were wonderful.

Description
Less is always more. Restaurateur Sara Grizzle (formerly of Redemption Grill and Essex) and Food Network’s award winning chef, Abe Lopez, have teamed up to create a bright new spot in Manhattan’s East Village with the best Tapas ever plus other small dishes. The menu offers a taste of everything and accommodates every food preference, meat eaters and vegans alike. Serving Tapas lets a group mix and mingle. With a great wine list, a good selection of tap and bottled beers, as well as some of the most interesting cocktails around (try the Ginger Mojito), Poco is the perfect spot for a quick drink and appetizer, dinner, or a place to wind down after a hectic day.
The food is original and fantastic (Mac & Cheese & Lobster) and as well as a good price performer appealing to budgets of any size.
Everyone at Poco looks forward to serving you. Sara, one of the owners, is usually there and stops by each table to meet our guests. See you when you arrive.

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.
