    More deals made per square foot than anywhere else south of 34th Street. Where nigthlife spends the day, if it wakes up before dusk. Juice bar strongly recommended for hair of the dog. [BlackBook] Read more

    1. Put away your pride for an hour (staff consists mostly of models);2. Order the herb fries.

    FYI - The Coffee Shop has great food, but is haunted by some of the rudest hostesses ever. You've been warned!

    They're aspiring models, not real models, so yeah, you probably have a chance.

    Bring your appetite and patience. The food is good, the eye candy better - but the service is always crap

    Yes, it's actually a restaurant, and surprise, their specialty is authentic Brazilian! Get the shrimp baiano, a shrimp stew from Bahia, that comes with kale, fried plantains and plenty of white rice.

    The lounge downstairs is pretty dope. Very chill on the weekends

    We have a soft spot for this chill (and still chic) joint. Their Jazzy Brunch is fun (try the English Grill) and the tuna over greens is a favorite.

    I come here when I'm sad and hungry at 1am and want to get drunk and eat plantains and they don't judge me. 10/10

  • Meghan Kathleen

    Here's the thing, the food here isn't really anything to write home about (except the Truffle Fries, duh), but it's a fun place to sip a cocktail and be seen.

    Everything's good. But what a burger!

    Horrible service. Forgotten orders and passive aggressive drink slams for ordering water. Only thing that keeps me coming back is the Sesame Chicken Salad.

    Nice husband/wife team will cook you just about anything. I like the grilled cheese or the pastrami on rye. Everything is quick and cheap!
