    Cozy space with quick service. Always busy but worth the wait. The smoked salmon/cream cheese scrambled eggs were the definition of perfection, and iced Belgian chocolate was to die for! Cash only.

    Wow, food is phenomenal. Tuscan chicken and poached pear salad are unbelievable. Three heads ups: its cash only, byob and make sure to make a reservation or you won't get a table.

    Very good and cheap. They don't serve alcohol but you can bring your own wine or beer. We had the egg scramble and made our own mimosas with their fresh squeezed orange juice. $50 total inc champaign.

    Ver y small and intimate space hence the name. Mushroom cigars, tuna tar tar and pierogi apps were very good. Entrees were large and also very good. Apple pie a la mode is a must so save space.

    Zagat rated it a 23, I would rate it a 19. Preparation and atmosphere was sub par but the service was excellent. Vegetarian options were too limited to make this a repeat but I don't regret it either

    This is the best weekend brunch spot in Hells Kitchen. There's a small line brewing around noon, so come early, or come late and order any of their egg scrambles - they're straight baller.

    Great food although the wait was longer than they said. And service pretty slow. And no earl gray tea despite it being on the menu. Still, delicious fries and excellent croque Monsieur.

    BYO with zero corkage fee!Amazing teeny-tiny restaurant...make a reservation a little ahead of time to make sure you can squeeze in. Trust them to whip up a proper rare steak. :)

    Spicy sausage scramble with mashed potatoes and red onions and greens greens dressed with a touch of sweetness. Intimate, personal spot.

    Try the vegetable quiche. It's badass, even for a meat lover like me. The Eggs Florentine with Ham is amazing too. Really tiny place though, not good for more than 4.

    Tiny location with speedy service. Staff is a but rude. They wouldn't let my friend use the bathroom while we waited for our table. Only once we were seated were we allowed to use it. Odd!!

    Potato pancakes with sour cream and smoked salmon + capers was really really good. Huge portions, too. Might wanna consider splitting with someone. They only take cash!

    Small location with handful of tables with some good Polish food. Recommend: potato pancakes with tomatoes and sausage, cheese & potato pierogis. Cash only.

    Horrible! Very small place, tables close together. Zero temperatures and the heating does not work. Poor service, maybe it was just a bad day but it really is not a good choice ... not recommended.

    The name is fitting because this place is small but we just love it. Best part? BYOB. Get the tuscan chicken with the amazing rosemary fries and chow down!

    Order the tuna tartare terrine with avocado glaze. Suggest no stilettos as walking through the active kitchen required to use the washroom / WC. BYO.

    The nook scrambler for brunch is fantastic and worth the wait. They don't keep a waiting list so monitor your position to prevent queue jumpers!

    Tight space, and a limited menu selection. but if you make Nook your choice, you can't go wrong with whatever you choose to try!! FANTASTIC!!

    BYOB but you have to spend $15 per person. Unfortunately, none of the brunch items are more than $12 so it makes it a bit difficult....

    Reminds me of Prague. The menu is small but the dishes are top notch. Try the tuna tartare.

    Mushroom rolls are really good. Desserts and espresso drinks are amazing as well. Try to leave some room for that desert. BYOB.

    Eggs Benedict was okay. Service was fast. Restaurant is very small. If there's no space, you can't wait inside the restaurant.

    Weirdest seating policy for brunch. They more or less make up wait times and give tables to people they want to.

    One of the best meals I've had in New York. The owners are hands on and make it the place what it is!
