“What happened to a good restaurant??”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

I have eaten at this restaurant several times previously, but not again. There are too many good restaurants in NYC to give this another chance. The avocado salad had no avocado. They had no appletini ingredients. The Flatbread (Pizza) was burned, but cold! 2 pasta dishes were inedible.The cheese for the fig prosciutto flatbread overpowered the main ingredients. The service was also lacking with long waits between courses. I don't know if the chef changed or what happened but a definite disappointment.

“Your basic sandwich/salad place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2011

There is always a huge line here, so I had to check it out for lunch. I got the mozzarella, tomato, basil sandwich (my standard). I only got a half and it was plenty. It was good, fresh cheese/tomatoes. A bit dry with no oil or sauce on it. It's good, I'll go there again, but I wouldn't classify it as amazing.
