We found New World a few years ago, and every time we visit the Catskills we make a point to make a reservation here. The funky atmosphere is casual, yet well put together. It is not stuffy, yet you can still feel like you are having a night out. The drinks are always amazing, and we make sure to get something different each time from the fantastic bartender. Also- try it virgin- half the time they come out even more delicious than the ones with alcohol! The service is impeccable, never have I had a complaint. Friendly and informative without being overbearing. We have never had to sit for long without getting what we needed. So onto the food! The food is meant to be spicy- and it is. You can find a few lower/non spicy dishes but that isn't why you would come to New World. There is a metric system on the dishes to the amount of spice. We like to mix it up, however there is one dish we always get. The Purple Haze Shrimp. Watch out. Addictive. Also highly highly spicy, and this is from someone who likes an inferno. The great thing about their spicy food is that you can STILL taste the flavors. The heat doesn't kill the flavor which is a hard trick. The portions are large, and I don't think you really need to both order an entree if you get an appetizer. Especially since you want to save room for drinks and desert! I highly recommend this restaurant if you want a unique experience with good food, fun atmosphere and a casual night.
