Wasn’t the worst experience I’ve had but did feel like a waste of money. They sat us down in a hot basement that felt like a steam room. I­t­ was so loud down there that you could barely hear the people next to you. We...More

I had the guacamole Benedict and my husband had the lobster Mac n cheese- both were delicious! The service was great and it was a nice atmosphere. The drinks were good, but a little weak so I’d give 4 stars for that.

The food and service at Poco was amazing. We went for brunch and all of our meals were delicious. The avocado smash was outstanding and came with salad and potatoes. The mimosas were truly unlimited and the server came around often to refill, or just...More

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

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.
