    Not a fan of the deviled eggs, but did very much enjoy the chicken liver toasts, and I'm not even a liver guy!

    My favorite burger in NYC--even compared to Minetta Tavern, Shake Shack, etc. Get it w a side of sriracha mayo. Sit at the bar and let the knowledgable staff introduce you to your new favorite beer.

    The deviled eggs are consistently excellent. However, been disappointed by food overall. Off-menu burger only served medium well. Not good.

    Upscale eats paired with Belgian beer. Recently had the chicken, with chicken meatballs and a side of roasted brussel sprouts. Delicious!

    Belgian frites are good and all, but they get nutritious vegetables right too. Try the roasted cauliflower!! Read more

    The lamb chops are really good, which is an inverse relation to the level of service. Also get the deviled eggs but don't bother with the tartar.

    One of my favorite places in NY for maybe reasons. Live the beer selection, meats always cooked perfectly, correctly once named the best burger in the city.

    the term "carboload" was invented for resto's belgian hangover pasta. and it's worth it. #supernomz

    Great food and location. The service is very courteous! Taste one of the desserts! But don't sit close to the door, it's really drafty when the door opens and closes.

    lunch service can be spotty but the hangover pasta and anything meat related is great. beer selection is insane - get the rodenbach grand cru by the glass just because you can.

    Order the burger! It's not always listed on the menu, but it's available, and it's amazingly good. Once claimed by New York Magazine as "New York's BEST burger" &ordering off menu makes you extra cool

    For Belgian food, Resto is spot on. Cheeseburgers, deviled eggs, and Belgian fries are irresistible at the haven for comfort food.
  • Westin Hotels & Resorts
    It's brunch. It's Sunday. It's bacon and a scratch-made bloody mary. It's fresh yogurt, crunchy granola and toast swimming in egg yolk.

    The chicken entree is worth it for just the chicken sausage. Amazing. Pay with Cover to complete the experience.

    Tries hard to emulate the downtown trendy vibe but fails; miserably. Simply poor service, while the food can be described as mildly above average seamless. One love Yoko.

    Very interesting spot, You pick your tasting menu for the table and share like 10 dishes. Again, long dinner great cocktails unassuming simple interior. Intimate, great for dates. $$$$

    I had their Bronx brewery radiator pasta, basically lamb neck pasta and it was delicious ... I have never thought they can make pasta that way, very American... Though the wait is a little bit long

    Food here is delicious, but this is the least accommodating place ever. Want chicken on your salad? No can do. Wheat bread instead of ciabatta? Nope. Substitute a side order? Keep dreaming.

    Brunch: it would be a sin not to get the eggs benedict-- perfectly poached eggs perched upon a bacon-studded liege waffle. Maybe ask for a drizzle of maple syrup. Sweet and savoury at its best.
  • Candace C.

    The Cote de Boeuf was amaaazing. The bone marrow was an excellent compliment to the rib eye. And the Bernaise dipping sauce with a hint of maple? So yum. Seriously melts in your mouth.

    Eeeeeeh I dunno. They made up for the seating issue with champagne and free dessert (and a really attentive staff), but for $120, the amount of meat we got was kind of shameful (and waaay too fatty).
