A word from Foragers City Table
Foragers brings clean and ethical food of the highest quality to our customers by shortening the distance between farm and fork. We believe that it is worth going the extra mile to find foods that are healthy for human, animal, and land. We do so by bringing in many local products on our own distribution truck that delivers the best of the Hudson Valley weekly. We also grow our own vegetables and raise laying hens for eggs at our market garden in upstate New York. Since we opened in 2005, we have found many incredible people and products! We are happy to share our discoveries with you in our grocer, wine shop and restaurant.

    I keep coming back and bringing friends and out of town friends. I'll always return. But please take that trumpet pasta off the menu....I'm trying to diet and I CANNOT resist it! Also we shared some kind of Chocolate, coffee dessert that was on the Prix Fix Tasting menu and we nearly fainted it was so delicious!

    Innovative menu, with a friendly staff to take you through it. Our group had fish and duck, all cooked to perfection--sides were also very tasty. Unpretentious interior, a bit on the casual side, but the food is serious and worth a trip to this Chelsea winner.

    Everything was delicious. Pork was crispy and delicious and fish was rare and flavorful. The mushrooms are to die for. I could have eaten an entire meal's worth of them! There is also a nice selection of wine, and a nice view of the street through the large windows. They have an adjoining grocery store and wine store as well. The only complaint I have is that they don't open for dinner until 6pm, so keep any after-dinner plans on the later side. I highly recommend!

    We started with the deviled eggs, a bit pricey--3 eggs(6 halves)$12.00 but very tasty. Three of us had Tempura Soft Shell Crab served on an Asian influenced vegetable salad. Very good-fresh and light offered in two portion sizes. We all opted for the small portion and it was enough. Adjacent grocery looks very interesting almost like an small American version of Eataly. We will definitely be back

    We decided first to browse the grocery which is attached to the restaurant. We were impressed with the freshness of the produce and the selection of fruits and vegetables. As we entered the restaurant we noticed immediately how noisy it was. Not the ordinary chatter of people happy to be out of work, this noise was bouncing off the walls. You have to speak loud to be heard, so that is what everyone is doing. Too bad, because the food is delicious and the servers were attentive and professional.

    A friend and I met for dinner and he ordered the pork special and I ordered the fish special but with salmon substituted for the monk fish (not my favorite). My fish was spectacular; the toasted red quinoa was delectable; the wok-tossed kale was fine. Perfect seasoning, I didn't need to add a thing! I will definitely go back.

    The food was quite nice but some items were really overpriced, i.e. the greens -- just cut the portion and lower the price. It's really just a pile of mesclun, etc. piled sky high. Great for neighborhood on a weeknight but wouldn't rush back.

  • Our best meal in NYC this year

    Dined on 8/3/2014
    We found Foyager on Yelp in search of a locally-sourced restaurant near our hotel. We come to NYC every year to see shows and discover new restaurants. Foyager was, by far, our favorite find in years and the fact that they offer as much fresh and locally-sourced food as possible is an extra bonus. My daughter and I both had the salmon tartine for brunch, which was just perfect. We also shared a bowl of fabulous roasted rosemary potatoes. We wished there was some magic where we could just sit and eat those potatoes forever and not get full.

    Clearly, the best food and service in the Chelsea area. I've been to most of them, living and working in Chelsea. Lovely staff and the healthiest and most locally grown veggies, and Forager's own beef, chicken, pork, etc. The grocery in front is well equipped for such a small store. Thank god, a welcome alternative to the Whole Foods industry!!

    The restaurant has a nice concept: fresh, locally sourced food. Had the menu of the day. Taste & presentation of everything was very good... but unfortunately the kitchen let us down on food prep & of the 2nd course / the salmon. It took 30 minutes from when we finished our soup until the main course / salmon was served. My dish was cold - it was clear it had been plated first and then sat waiting for the second meal to be prepared. I complained, the waiter offered to remove the item from my bill. The mgr offered to replace the dish / I said no, did not want to wait another 30 mins. Even though cold, it was good. Dessert was also very good. Disappointed as it could have been much better. And they did not remove the cold item from the bill.

    Great farm to table restaurant - you could tell all the ingredients were extremely fresh, and the dishes really let those flavors shine. The restaurant is attached to the market, so this may not be the place for a fancy event, but the food is definitely stand out.

    Arrived 5 minutes prior to our 6pm reservation and they wouldn't seat us until it was actually 6. This kind of set the tone for the service, except for when a friend found her pasta dish to be overly salty (it was) and they were very kind to take it off the bill and bring her another when she didn't ask for it. Needless to say we were late for our show that night, but I think it you're just there for the food and can brush off the iciness of the staff you'll enjoy the meal. Get the king crab first plate -- very delicious and interesting.

    We had an excellent meal at Foragers City Table, ordering from a creative and diverse menu and with some very good specials and good vegetarian options, too. The drinks list was also very nice. The only real downside was that it was very loud, so be prepared to be as focused on your companions' conversation as on the food.

    Excellent food. I started my meal with a glass of fresh veggie juice called The Chelsea with cucumber, kale, celery, and parsley. It was room temperature which to me is harder to drink so I asked for a glass of ice. For my main course I enjoyed the Housemade Crepinette. The pork and potatoes were delicious. My friend ordered a side of the house made bacon and it was really good. We also shared a side of pancakes and that was my favorite dish. The pancakes were light and fluffy with a hint of orange. There were amazing!

    Quiet in a rainy Thursday night before the 4th of July weekend. Seated immediately next to the huge windows for 7:30 reservation. Service and food excellent, fresh and creative. Deviled eggs to die for, fabulous eggplant dip. Sea bass succulent, but crab appetizer disappointing only because it was so minuscule. Desserts superior. Will definitely return often.

    So many great NY restaurants and Foragers is a little, unpretentious gem nestled in the back of an organic, natural food store. Our food was delicious, it tasted so fresh and we were impressed that is was so healthy and we felt like we were eating sanely. One way we judge good quality is would we come back? In a heartbeat!

    I've eaten here several times now and each time is memorable. The food is so fresh tasting and perfectly prepared and plated (although chasing a tempura soft shell crab around a steeply pitched bowl is a little more challenging that it needs to be). The wait staff is always helpful and enthusiastic. I always suggest Foragers when I want to be certain that my friends will be pleased.
