delicious, delicious, deliciousstumbled upon this spot and it has become one of my favorite spots in the east village/alphabet city area. wonderful food, friendly staff, amazing drink list, live bands during brunch - what's not to like?!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMquintessential neighborhood gemFriends in nyc recommended Exchange to me as a great place "off the beaten track". I brought 3 business colleagues and they were not disappointed. One hipster friend called the priest stranglers on the menu " the best pasta dish he ever ate". The hangar steak, jambalya balls with Brown gravy and salt seared cod were all extraordinary. We ate family style and shared 3 apps, 4 mains and the cheese plate. The only one that wasnt as well received ad the others was the braciole, which was just a tad dry. Service was excellent and very friendly. Chase was our server and made solid recommendations on beers and sides. 5 stars for this near perfect little gem.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent New Orleans influencedExcellent New Orleans influenced food bursting with dynamic flavors.

Urban beat atmosphere.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThe menu was varied and weThe menu was varied and we liked everything that we ordered. We had a vegetarian with us and she was especially pleased with her choices. We were a little disappointed with the fact that they did not have a full bar. I thought the wine by the glass selection was limited and overly expensive. I will go back when I am in the neighborhood again, but may not make a special trip just to go to the restaurant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPhneomenalPhenomenal. Everything was good: food, atmosphere, music, service...everything. The attention to detail was impressive.
We ordered two entrees and all six sides. Enough food, as it turns out, for dinner the next nights at home. But, we were intent on sampling everything we could.
The entrees were great: pasta and hanger steak. But the best part were the sides: brussels, radicchio, kale, etc. Even the fries were a treat.
Highly recommend for most occasions.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful "Girls NightHad a wonderful "Girls Night Out" dinner on a Saturday night. Staff was great, food delicious and ambiance eclecticly fun!
We dined on several small plates and a trio of veggies (plus cocktails) and all were delicious!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMEclectic and provocativeMy dad grilled our waiter about almost every item on the menu, and I was very impressed with his insightful answers. I was even more impressed that all the food that came to our table was delicious!!!! I also enjoyed the setting, which is laid back enough not to be pretentious, but well-lit enough to feel very glam.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
