    Amazing small plates. One of the best meals I've ever had in NYC. Only 11 tables so call ahead.

    From the complimentary amuse-bouche to the gingerbread steamed pudding, this place is worth the splurge. And when weather allows, try to get a seat in their garden. Read more

    It’s pricey, but for one of the best bargains in the borough, try the Green Plate Special - $40 for the four-course veggie tasting menu. Read more

    As the name implies, this veggie-focused restaurant is a go-to for seasonal picks from roast game and winter squash to wildly popular signatures like french fry “salad” topped with wild mushrooms.

    Really really good, but pricey. Wine is way high and what you think is an entree is just a little dish. Super good, but dear.

    Best meal I've had in New York!!! Amazing wine list and a delicious seasonal menu. Risotto, snap pea salad, and mocha bread pudding are a must! Loved the complimentary samples. Sit in the garden!

    Everything was good, but very few dishes really stood out (with the exception of the sorbet palate cleanser). For the price, we expected more.

    All sorts of yum! Everything was delish that it's worth the price. Unpretentious and FULL of vegetarian options- which makes them a winner amongst the farm to table movement. GET THE BEETS!

    Holy moley this place is good. Two plates per person is plenty -- cauliflower, duck and the hen were the favs.

    The best food I've had at NYC so far. This is a small place, and rated very highly so reservations are almost impossible to get. I got lucky as my cousin's friend cancelled hers.

    For a light lunch, try the Chopped Salad – it’s perfect. For a light dinner (or as a starter) the Noodle Salad is a must.
