A word from Park Avenue Autumn
The acclaimed restaurant Park Avenue Autumn has returned to the Nomad neighborhood of Manhattan, just in time to herald the season’s arrival. This casual, accessible version of the classic concept brings to life the seasonal premise of the restaurant with a physical design, cuisine, and beverage program that completely change with the season. Park Avenue alumni Zene Flinn and Benkei O’Sullivan (Frankie’s Spuntino, ABC Kitchen) collaborated to create the autumn-inspired menu that transitions from the celebrating the last of summer’s produce to focusing on techniques like roasting and braising. Autumn dishes include The Autumn Haystack Salad with Crispy Shrimp, Halibut with Black Truffles and Briche-Crusted Poached Egg, and Pork Chop Schnitzel with Pear-Rosemary Mostarda and Capers. Other summer favorites make appearances, like Fig Carpaccio with Hoja Santa Goat Cheese and Smoked Almonds and Tarte Flambée for Two.

    I am thrilled that this restaurant has returned and is closer to my home! We took my mom out for a wonderful birthday dinner. The food was excellent. There were a few small issues with service (our side dish came out a little after our main dishes and they forgot my husband's second drink) but otherwise, it was perfect! And we got a second dessert compliments of the house! I can't wait for another chance to eat there.

    We went for brunch and wanted to order off lunch menu and were told we couldnt. The service was slow and the food was just ok. Nothing exceptional. For desert the restaurant also added a deleicous chocolate cube which I didnt order or ask for and they charged me $15. Didnt want to disrupt my guests so I said nothing, but thought that was low class

    Extremely unfriendly waiter (poor attitude, was barely present), one out of four cocktails made poorly, they were out of the first bottle of wine I ordered (they came back >30 min after we ordered to say they didn't have it and we ordered something else). We did not receive wine before the first course arrived.

    Let me just say, when I research a restaurant, I reallllly research it. This had a good vibe when I walked in, the hostess' were so nice, it felt high end foodie without being jerky (you know what I mean). the food was amazing and the round table for a group was really more perfect. Everyone had a good view of the gorgeous decor. and it is gorgeous.

    Park Ave. autumn is a beautiful restaurant! The hand crafted drinks were great, made by the friendly bartender, Darren. Our meal was great, from appetizers to dessert. My husband had the Venison Tartare which he loved. My chocolate cube for dessert not only looked great but tasted great too! Our server, Becca, was wonderful!! Can't wait to see the seasons change at this restaurant.

    My dinner was delicious -- kale and manchego salad and branzino fish. The setting was so pretty with a wonderful ambience albeit a bit loud. I can't wait to see the winter decorations and menu. It took a long time for us to place our order but we didn't mind as we were a a group of girlfriends and enjoyed chatting.

    Been waiting a while to try it and the delicious butter that came with the bread and surprise bite sized included appetizer didn't disappoint. Neither did the squash soup or entre that i had! It was pretty quiet when we got there at 545 so that's an option for anyone who'd like a quieter meal.

    This restaurant sounded amazing when I first made the reservation, but it was completely overrated and overpriced. The restaurant was beautiful and dinner started well with the pumpkin bread and amuse, but the food quickly went downhill from there - the halibut was extremely over done and everything was over sauced. They were also out of multiple things on the menu and the espresso machine was broken, things I normally wouldn't care about but for the prices they were charging for sub-pare food I would expect better. There are much better restaurants in the city!!

    Although the restaurant still has the same lovely seasonal decor, it is more casual and less elegant than it's uptown predecessor. The food was at best good and in the case of the skirt steak, unsatisfactory. The service is excellent and the staff is very accommodating.

    The butternut squash soup was delicious as well as the perfectly cooked halibut with black truffle shavings. The sticky toffee pudding was spot on. Great view in the main dining hall - we were on the balcony which was quieter so turned out better choice if less dramatic decor. We did have to ask to switch tables as ours was a folding table(?) and the legs were in the way. Go early if you need it to be quiet. Ask for main dining hall table for the max decor effect.

    The new restaurant is very beautiful and spacious. Food was quite good, though no one could accuse the portions of being large. Service, however, was not up to the high standards expected. A $17 glass of white wine should be chilled. The differ, by our server, of ice was not the proper solution. We left a barely 20% tip. Quite unusual for us.There did not seem to be enough servers and we felt rushed, something that never happened at the older location.

    With so many options in manhattan, we wanted to give this restaurant a try after my husband saw a write up in NY Times. Visually the restaurant looked exciting but the food disappointed. Everything,soup,salad,sides and entrees were too salty. Presentation also needed improvement. Maybe winter will bring a change in the menu?

    We had been so sad when Park Avenue.... closed last year and anxiously waited for its reopening...Autumn had previously been our favorite of the seasons. There were some dishes from the old menu but we tried some new things. Sad that the lobster crouton is no longer park of the butternut squash soup! Our main dishes were very good and the sides were interesting. Not thrilled with the hamachi appetizer. We were a little disappointed that the usual selection of breads (including a crispy flatbread) were no longer there. No biggie. The dessert was very disappointing. Apple tatin creme brule-- two things I normally love--together were disappointing. Nobody seemed to care that I only took two bites! Not sure we will be back for "winter".

    I was a huge fan of the uptown location and was ecstatic when I found out my favorite restaurant was reopening. The location is more than double the size of the previous location and, therefore, is not as cozy. The ambience is still wonderful and the decor is as spot on as it used to be. The menu has some kinks to be worked out. I tried ordering the duck and found put they haven't started serving the duck at this location yet. That being said, the food was as good if not better than I remember (the scallop entree is to perfection and the butternut squash soup is sinful) and the seasonal drinks are absurdly good. The service was impeccable. I was thrilled with the experience and will absolutely be going back.

    First time we have tried since they moved into their new digs. Food is still great. Nice space, a little more open and modern, but very pleasant. Very nice bar, which i think is an upgrade over the old location. The service was very knowledgable and timely. Had the butternut squash soup to start, and it was spectacular. Will definitely be back.

    Going to a completely different neighborhood to follow a restaurant isn't my usual activity but I was pleased to find the trip rewarding. The food was lovely although portions were rather small. Definitely will revisit! The Toasted Almond Gnudi and Fig Carpaccio were wonderful and the Hamachi Sashimi was less exciting but fine.

    We were loyal patrons of Park Avenue in its old location and were excited to try the new venue - cocktails were delicious, the decor interesting and, of course, seasonal but serving undercooked pork feels a non-recoverable mistake. Certainly being asked "I'm sorry, can I bring another glass of wine on the house" entirely misses the point. We will not be returning.

    This place is really one of a kind for changing its name,decor and menu according to the season. The food was great. Service was amazing. The atmosphere was energetic and welcoming, but yet romantic. But most of all (and this what made us come back and check out this new location of this restaurant) I'd like to serenade to Chocolate cube desert. It is OUTSTANDING! This desert item is to die for! I definitely recommend Park Avenue Autumn.

    Several years ago, we visited Park Avenue Spring. We were impressed by the food, service, ambiance and liked the idea of changing the name, menus and decor for each season. Then the restaurant closed for a few years. I was happy to receive an email that Park Avenue Autumn would again open downtown starting September 23. We made reservations for the next night and it did not disappoint. This is definitely fit for foodies. When we arrived at our table, we were served individual miniature pumpkin breads with maple butter - delicious. Appetizers were great with Black Friday Toast and the Autumn Haystack as the clear winners. The pork chip schnitzel was fabulous. All in all, our dining experience was superb and we will definitely be back.
