Time Out New York: "The best place to find your inner Zen boasts relaxed, peaceful grounds. Claim a spot near the serene Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, surrounded by Japanese myrtle and cypress trees, and bliss out."
Eater: "At this sunny new restaurant in The Standard East Village, John Fraser is serving an inspired version of California cuisine. The roasted beets, carrots Wellington, and lamb saddle are early standouts."
Hallie W.: "Do yourself a favor and get the carrot fries. Actually, make it two orders. Seriously."
