Foursquare Tips

  • Grab a table in the garden when its nice and try the BBQ Duck Sandwich (for lunch) or the Seared Sea Scallops and the Duroc Pork Chop for dinner.
  • Holy moley this place is good. Two plates per person is plenty -- cauliflower, duck and the hen were the favs.
  • The chef here is also the owner and it shows! The food and service is excellent.
  • Sunday pancakes!
  • Venison. Mmmm
  • Try the beets and cheese raviolis. Amazing.
  • Stand awkwardly in the pass
  • For a light lunch, try the Chopped Salad its perfect. For a light dinner (or as a starter) the Noodle Salad is a must.
  • If bacon is on the menu, have it. Charlie makes his own in a smoker in the garden and its quite good.
  • You will not be disappointed!! Chef is awesome! Excellent service!
  • Amazing small plates. One of the best meals I've ever had in NYC. Only 11 tables so call ahead.
  • Tasting menu was heavenly
  • Food was delicious and seasonal. Plates are small served family style.
  • Lamb stuffed cabbage is perfect on a cold rainy night
  • They had us at French Fry Salad! The Shell Peas & Sugar Snaps are also a CITY GRIT favorite!
  • From the complimentary amuse-bouche to the gingerbread steamed pudding, this place is worth the splurge. And when weather allows, try to get a seat in their garden.
  • Its pricey, but for one of the best bargains in the borough, try the Green Plate Special - $40 for the four-course veggie tasting menu.
  • As the name implies, this veggie-focused restaurant is a go-to for seasonal picks from roast game and winter squash to wildly popular signatures like french fry salad topped with wild mushrooms.
  • Really really good, but pricey. Wine is way high and what you think is an entree is just a little dish. Super good, but dear.
  • The staff is attentive, the food is delicious, and the restaurant is cozy! Make a reservation -- great place for an anniversary dinner or intimate date!
