We were nicely surprised with the quality of the food, and the service. Upon our request the staff managed to get everything on time as we were on a tight schedule. Not too noisy and a beautiful place. Very nice selection of wines and beverages and priced nicely.

Everything was good, drinks, wine, food and service. This is a great place with a very nice fun atmosphere. I loved the sausages and liked the fact that you can select two for an entree. What a great place for a fun evening with very good food.

We ate here as a part of 3 for a business meeting. We started at the bar where they had a great server and some wonderful beer, wine, and cocktail options. We moved to the table and again the service was great. We especially enjoyed working with Ian, the Somellier. We shared some appetizers and they were all quite good.... More

This was my second visit and not my last. The happy hour specials are a great way to start out a dinner and evening out. The Oysters were especially delicious this time.

Dinner on a Tuesday night with friends in a largely empty, subdued room was a bit of a contrast with an earlier visit when the place was buzzing and vibrant. Service was professional and friendly and the food competent, if uninspired. A good wine list and an impressive, wonderfully described beer list.

Fun atmosphere and excellent food - highly recommend it. Other famous chefs and donated sets of cookware, which are stacked around the restaurant as decorations. Very interesting. Nice menu

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.
