    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.

    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!

    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

    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

    Go and order a meal, but also one of Sharon's amazing deserts. Chosen as one of New York's (not just Brooklyn's) top ten restaurants a couple years ago by Zagats.

    Grab a table in the garden when it’s nice and try the BBQ Duck Sandwich (for lunch) or the Seared Sea Scallops and the Duroc Pork Chop for dinner.

    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.

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

    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.

    Focus on desserts, this is the strong point of the restaurant! Go for appetizer and dessert or entree and dessert.

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

    If bacon is on the menu, have it. Charlie makes his own in a smoker in the garden and its quite good.
