My mother and I stopped in for breakfast on our vacation in New York. We were seated immediately and our server was attentive. The restaurant had a contemporary but comfortable feeling. The food tasted wonderful! We would definitely visit Ma Peche again.

I like to come here with a group of friends who enjoy good food and are not shy to share and try multiple dishes. Have been there both at lunch and dinner time and always had a great experience.

Highly recommended. Korean fusion food served in a dim sum and tapas style. Small portions so you can try a bit of everything. Definitely try the pork buns and fried chicken amongst other dishes.

It is a good place to go if after a visit to the MOMA. Not a very good place for Asian for. The pork buns are the good but overpriced. I have had better for less. It is no fun to be on communal tables either.

Good food, good service but not much space. A lot of couples were installed on the same table... our neighbors were cool but it could have been otherwise.

Quite possible the best meal I've ever had, both food- and drink-wise. Ricotta and beets, snap peas, oyster buns, crab cakes - all super delicious. Best GT I've ever had and the spicy hot house specialty cocktail we tried was strong and delicious, too. The only downside was the host at the front desk who was a bit too dismissive... More

We had a nice dinner with a friend down in the very plainly decorated cellar restaurant Ma Peche. As all the tables were full, the atmosphere was very nice and lively. Mostly young people, but you didn't feel awkward being a middle-aged couple. We were there for a first time and were very nicely shown the ways of the house.... More

Loved the fried chicken and a lot of their tapas sharing plates. Not a fan of their decor though. Depends what you are expecting, but if you would like a nice-chi chi place, this ain't it.

Casual dress place ; food is top notch. You need to be a bit adventurous. Sharing plates all were great. Adventurous wine list as well. One of our party had an old fashion - it was not your normal cocktail - we all enjoyed it. First impression was rocky - but we truly went with the recommendations of the servers.

Thank krbl6161

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
