    Let me introduce Bronte to you. He will be your best friend for 10 minutes. Best 'different' burger so far. The pasta has no chance after this burger, but is good, too. I tried 'roasted vegetable'.

    The famous Bronte burger. As some reviewers stated, it's too sweet. Also the meat was a bit overcooked (I ordered medium but was served almost well-done). But every dish was tasty. Worth to go.

    This is a cool little restaurant with a garage door that opens up to the street. The crispy chicken salad is delicious. Ask for one of the two tables along the garage door and closest to the street.

    Bronte burger and creamy chicken pasta were our choice. Both were really delicious, but the burger was slightly overly sweet for me. And the wine glasses are funny and cute.

    Great for brunch (until 1 pm) with a ton of veg options. While the green eggs dish isn't filling, the kale is out of this world with its subtly sweet taste. 👌

    what tourists want in "soho": a cool crowd in a unique hole in the wall with healthy options that feels like a hidden gem. Unfortunately the teams ingredients aren't always fresh & waits can be looong

    All of the burgers are unique (the meat and the bun are...more Australian) and tasty. The real lunch winner is the chicken avo salad. Light and well-dressed, just like your favorite startup employee.

    Really like this place. It's super super small but can always manage to get seats. Salads and pasta are both awesome. Apparently the burgers here are great too cc @xy (4 of 4 petals via Fondu) Read more

    The Bronte is a great burger. Love the ciabatta bread, Thai sweet chili sauce and juicy burger. Side salad is alright but I guess better than filling on fries. Tiny tiny restaurant, sit by the window.

    The Bronte Burger is freakin' amazing. It's messy, and a bit unorthodox, but so delicious. The truffle fries bring it to new heights. Bonus: Australian accents.

    Their Aussie-style Whaleys burger made with a meatloaf-y patty topped with beets, pineapple, and a runny fried egg may not be anything like a typical American burger, but it's still tasty. Read more

    Treat yo'self to this burger and truffle fries. Absolutely incredible! It's a lot of food, so go splitty splitty with the gluten free pasta dish. Use the truffle fries as leverage.

    Bronte bronte bronte bronte. Thank goodness they expanded the space a little; lines are still pretty long though. Pastas are okay too; if available get the passion fruit banana bread!

    Order the Bronte burger without a bun. The bun is a delicious ciabatta, but if it isn't your cheatday just let it go. The burger will still be one of the tastiest in all of NYC.

    Awesome spot. Farro and haloumi salad. Brussels sprouts are a MUST. Bronte burger is hardcore but pretty awesome if you're really hungry

    One of my favorite hearty salads in Soho is the roast vegetable salad with roast pumpkin, peppers, goat cheese, pine nuts, and arugula.

    Salad lovers, try the apple prosciutto salad. Fresh apple chunks, crispy prosciutto, and bits of toffee for a salty-sweet surprise. Light eats but satisfyingly full of flavor.

    Good looking Aussies hang out here 24/7. Maybe because it's also owned by Aussies. In any case, the salads here are fresh and amazing. Love the pear & walnut version best.

    My Burger and the Chicken Salat were really outstanding. Be sure to go for the fancier burgers, the plain one is a bit boring.

    Over-hyped. Slowest service ever, no explanation why only our order was delayed and the complimentary bread came after 30 minutes of waiting! Burger was mediocre, pasta sucked- go to fiat cafe instead

    Pasta dishes were great, but a side dish of sweet potato fries w/ sweet chili sauce & sour cream was actually the best.

    Although I did not have it (and regret it) the burger my friend got (and I tasted) was amazing. Get the side of Brussel sprouts as well. Thank me later.

    The food is great, but they have an interesting perception of time. What's 15 minutes for them is more like 45 (and counting) to the regular folk. So be prepared to wait

    Used to come here all the time, but it sadly went downhill after they expanded a few months ago. They changed a bunch of dishes for the worse, and quality is now pretty inconsistent.

    The Whaley w egg beets and pineapple will blow your mind. By far one of the most tasteful and creative burgers I've had.

    Splitty-split on the burger and one of the pastas (spicy sausage!) is the way to go. One of the best casual lunch spots in the hood IMHO

    Always packed but quieter if you do an early dinner. Pastas have interesting flavors without being obnoxious. Portion sizes are perfect.
