  • Great Brunch!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    We had brunch over Labor Day weekend and it was great. We had the cinnamon buns and beignets for the table and they were both delicious. The beignets were light and fluffly, cinnamon buns were perfectly gooey and cinnamon-ey. The soft scrambled eggs with veggies was delicious, but the jalapeno grits were the standout for me. Super creamy and fluffy. Other dishes at our table were the baked eggs with black beans and the french toast. The french toast was the only dish that didn't completely satisfy, it really needed more fruit or syrup. The bread was very thick, which is a good thing, but it was a tad dry. Other than the french toast, every dish was tasty and satisfying!

    My friend and I love to go around the city and dine in "new" restaurants. Hundred Acres has been around for about 2 years and has a beautiful patio and layout in general. Great wines and wild whiskeys that you must try. We ordered the ricotta cavatelli and the special "fish" of the day and THOROUGhLY enjoyed the vegetable dish (cavatelli). We did not care for the squash and spinach-filled deboned catch of the day with mint sauce-- as there was no savory taste. My friend doesn't care for salt but mentioned that it needed some salt to taste. I agreed. It was a bit bland and cold oddly enough. However, we loved loved the cavatelli dish and had 2 very attentive servers and wait staff that made us feel right at home. Perfect service!

    The seasonal watermelon lemonade with jalapeño vodka cocktail was utterly refreshing and not too sweet. The vodka infusion is done in-house. We asked about the green or almost herbal quality to the drink and our informative and personable waiter said there was also cucumber in the mix. Highly recommended! We started with the chicken liver mousse and fried green tomatoes. For our entrées, we had the jambalaya and the porchetta. Both were delicious and not overly seasoned. The pork was cooked to perfection and the crispy skin was candy-like. For around $100 (sans tip), two drinks, two appetizers, and two entrées, and attentive service made for a notable dining experience. The setting is also very nice, with a zen-meets-sonoma type quality.

    We've been coming here for years- both for brunch and dinner, and love the atmosphere and the food. Me and my husband also frequent the other restaurants by the same owners; Five Points and Cookshop. I would say Cookshop is at the pinnacle of these three restaurants, and Five Points is great for brunch, with a more busy casual vibe. Hundred Acres feels slightly less fancy than Cookshop, and less crazy to get reservation, but the food is always amazing, and I like the location on a quiet street in ShoHo.

    Go for the Cinnamon Rolls and a Bloody Mary. The pimento cheese sandwich was subpar at best but I have high expectations being from the south. However, the turkey sandwich wasn't mind-blowing either.

    Celebrated my 3rd wedding anniversary there. We loved the deviled eggs and the hush puppies we had for appetizers. Our meals were also very good. I had the conrnmeal crusted catfish which had a nice crispy-crunchiness to it. My husband had the duck and although he remaked it was a small portion, he enjoyed it a great deal. He said it was prepared perfectly and not greasy. We both enjoyed our desserts, he the bread pudding and I had the peach cobbler. Our waiter was great! He was friendly and informative and paid just the right amount of attention to As we left, I noticed the bar was quite alive with people laughing and having a good time. It was a great evening!

    We went to Sunday brunch with a reservation but still had to wait 20 minutes to get our table. The place certainly draws a crowd but I'm guessing it's more for the hipster vibe. Our waiter was quick to point out that the most important item on the menu was an array of bloody Mary choices -- we just wanted brunch. The sandwiches were well-sized but just sandwiches and the gumbo was surprisingly sparse and more like a soup, though it did taste good. All in all, only an okay experience.

    This is one one my favorite restaurants. Great space - I prefer sitting in the back if I'm with a large group. I love the fact their menu is seasonal. The drinks and food have been consistently good. Unfortunately, our latest meal was a little disappointing. The entrees were heavy on the salt. I thought it was me but when my friend didn't finish her meal, I asked the other friends and they had the same experience with their dish. It could have been an off night for restaurant. I'll be back again.

  • Disappointing "N'Orlins" fare...
    MICKEYMICHAELS
    Dined on 7/24/2014
    We expected genuine New Orleans-tasting fare; greatly disappointed. Its cat fish and other dishes aren't even close to Cajun or Creole-cooking. The spices were overwrought and fake in taste; the appetizers: salad was boring and the fried oysters small and unexceptional. We had to specially order bread--when it arrived the cornbread was hard and cold, and the other bread thin and brittle; the butter was changing colors. Worse were the desserts. Ordered peach cobbler. That, too seemed, fake. Cobbler was not deep-dished or even peachy; the crust was bland (more crumbly than doughy) and surely nothing to write home about. Ice cream scoop was tiny. Soul and Cajun cooks would be alarmed and disgusted by this poor excuse for New Orleans meals.

    I had a lovely lunch here with a friend on a weekday. The meal was well paced and we were not rushed, which was nice as we had lots to catch up on. We came in for the $24 3 course lunch menu but ended up ordering from the (pricier) regular menu. The salad, merluza, and peach cobbler were all delicious. The cocktails are pricey but potent. I would definitely return if in the area.

    This place is a brunch favorite of mine. Even during the summer, when crowds tend to thin out in the City, they always seem to be packed with locals. I usually go for the egg dishes and I find that everything they serve up is fresh and flavorful. I'd recommend the soft scrambled eggs with chives/leeks/gruyere/corn bread, as well as the side of turkey sausage. They also have a nice selection of brunch cocktails. It would be nice if some of the sides offered separately were included with your meal (if only for some variety), but all things considered, it still qualifies as reasonably-priced in my book. I also like the lively atmosphere, even though the conversation level gets a little loud at times in the front room.

    First time dining here and it was fabulous! My daughter and I had brunch and the food was delicious. I had soft scrambled eggs, scrumptious! My daughter had poached eggs also yum! We shared ricotta fritters and turkey sausage. The fritters are a must have. The service was friendly and efficient. Loved the Bloody Mary's. Wish I could have had another! Can't wait to go back for lunch or dinner. Great find.

    This is definitely one of my favorite brunch places in the city. Always on point. The biscuits alone are worth the trip. I usually get the soft scrambled eggs or the jalapeno grits. As far as drinks go, the sparkling acres is refreshing and comes in a pitcher to share with friends.

    as before, just really solid food. If you can't get into the trendy places around Greenwich, this is a really solid backup. You can usually walk in and find a table on Monday through Wednesday evenings (maybe even Thursday) anytime. The pork chop is really delicious, and the vibe is just super nice and chill. Kind of like ABC Kitchen but more genuinely homey and not conceited anthropologie.

It made the conversation really enjoyable and the dinner not an exhausting event as it so often is in this neighborhood where you have to shout across table to hear each other.

    Hundred Acres is a reliably delicious and welcoming restaurant on a quiet block of the village that extends below Houston on Macdougal. The menu changes frequently, but the black kale salad always seems to be on the menu, which is a good thing. I love their refreshing mocktails--a nice way to start off on a summer evening--and they have great wines by the glass as well.

    In a word---delicious! The flatbread appetizer was fabulous and the corn bread in the bread basket was a terrific treat. There are lots of options to select from in regard to entrees. I had the catfish and my friend had steak. We both cleaned our plates! However, we did save a smidgeon of room for dessert and shared the strawberry shortcake and it was outstanding and well worth the calories! I have been here several times and every time it is consistently great.

    Dined here with my wife on a recent trip to NYC. The "mocktails" were perfect for her (as she is pregnant) and the food was absolutely amazing. This was THE BEST meal of our entire trip. The excellent service and lively bar scene only added to our enjoyment. Entree proportions are generous and meals are reasonably priced. We got the apple pork and breaded catfish plates. Would absolutely recommend those (although we were told the chef makes a mean gumbo and is from Louisiana, as are we).
