New on the Scene. Glad we
New on the Scene. Glad we went now. Probably won't be able to get a table when the word gets out!
Food fresh, delicious, some unique preparations, beautifully presented and very moderately priced. Small plates were very ample.
The yummy bread pudding dessert was so large, we shared it with the young men at the next table who wolfed it down!
Setting-warm with rustic wood panelling/modern lighting. Service friendly. Will definitely repeat!

Went here in a small group which was perfect as the menu suit sharing. The food was excellent, friendly staff and nice decor. Only downside is that they tried to seat another couple end of our table which was a bit odd given no pre warning - they were on a date too so requested to move. I would go back again though

Whole experience was Verny
Whole experience was Verny pleasant. Plate size was not too small so 3 of us ladies could share 4 plates. The panna cotta dessert was beautifully presented and absolutely scrumptious. We were able to have a vey comfortable time conversing among ourselves. The staff was great, attentive and unobtrusive.

The food and service at County are excellent, and the small plates are great for sharing. But, be prepared to share your space, too, as all tables are communal. Or, better still, take your friends and go as a group!

This new restaurant is a real find! Very convenient location, delicious tapas sized portions and fun cocktails. The staff was very polite, accomodation and knowledgeable and the owner made a delightful appearance.

Definitely coming back
Food was awesome and the mac & cheese is unreal. Attentive wait staff. Didn't wait long for food. It was a little loud, but the decor and overall experience was great.

Small Plates, Big Flavor
Surprisingly set next to an obnoxious bar, stepping into County feels far removed from the city outside. Friendly, attentive service followed by plate after plate of deliciousness. Mac & Cheese, short ribs, sliders, and schnitzel were favorites. Might be nice to see a few more veggies on the menu but overall a yumfest. And definitely try a cocktail from their menu!

Nice neighborhood place in
Nice neighborhood place in an area that needs one; cozy, comfortable; menu is combo of small plates and regular sized ones, mostly agreeable familiar fare.
Definitely a repeater. ,

Cute little American Tapas
When we first went into the restaurant at 6:30 there weren't a lot of people at all. The service was a bit too attentive and was getting quite distracting. But as soon as the place began to fill up, it was like we didn't exist anymore. The food was pretty good; every dish we had was good. But be warned they are small portions. We did not have many drinks but the ones we had were interesting. Would like to try more of their specialty cocktails!

Great food, great vibe...
I'm a huge fan of County. Fantastic, modern-sleek decor, creative interesting take on american comfort food. Oh, and highly recommend the cocktails!
5/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food was very good, but I thought it was expensive for the size of the dishes. You must order more dishes to fullfil your hunger, which brings the price up!
Service was friendly and ambience nice and pleasant.

Deb is great
The owner greats you as you arrive and makes sure that everything is going well during the course of your meal. The entrees are good but the sides were disappointing, especially the "truffle" fries.

Good Dining Experience
Food was great, cocktails were great and service was excellent!
Owner was friendly, attentive and respectful, waitress was accommodating and the ambience was casual, cool and romantic.
Our group had a wonderful time because of our dining experience at County. It's highly recommended.

Owner concern was exemplary...
First of all, I loved the food and service from our waitress. But the attention the owner paid to customers was amazing! She approached our table when she was thrilled that we were trying the aspic, something she said many customers pass up because they're not familiar with it. But it was very tasty. And then I noticed she made sure to close a vent from the A/C that was making a bar customer who was sleeveless hold her arms because she was cold. So thoughtful! Great atmosphere here. No pretention. Great food. Nice location.

Great Saturday night dinner for 2!
Great experience overall! Food was delicious - great selection of "small plates" (which were actually quite large). Great to meet Matt (bartender) and Deb (owner) while sitting at the bar. Matt made us some epic off-menu cocktails while the owner found a few moments to chat and ensure we had a great experience
The food was (temperature) hot and tasted great - sliders, fish and chips and ricotta gnochi (it was a "cheat day"). They had many other options as well, which we'll definitely be back to try soon.
Kudos to this new neighborhood spot!
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
really enjoyed the restaurant- chicken lollipops/fish and chips were solid. Enjoyed about 15different dishes there

Happy to find County
Went here with two friends last night and we had a wonderful time. The food covers many different categories, so you can definitely find something that you'd like. They advertise small plates, but there's enough food that you can have them as a small entree. We shared a scallop plate. I had the fish and chips, which were more delicate than you usually get, with great fries that we also shared. My friends had the tacos and the smoked chicken salad. Everything was delicious. The service was excellent and attentive. High marks from us. We will all keep it in mind when we are dining in the area again.

Good go-to in Union Square area!
A few friends and I had dinner there this week. The decor is very inviting - modern but warm. We shared a cheese plate and 5 small plates and all felt pretty full. Too full for dessert! The braised short ribs and polenta were my favorite - super delicious! We will be back!
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
A great place to check out !!
Food, drinks and atmosphere all notable.... will definately make a a regular drop in for dining !!
8/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
Enjoyed the place great for tapas style in a mordern setting.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
A true gem
A plate of the home made ricotta with bred and a glass of red wine is all you need for a successful evening. The atmosphere is warm and it is actually possible to have a normal conversation without screaming. This restaurant is a true gem and I'll be back.
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
terrific food & service
everything about this was delightful - from the warm welcome by the hostess, to the creative cocktails, to the delicious meal and the delightful dessert. the standouts on the menu were the apple bibb lettuce salad, the ricotta and the pan roasted chicken. wait staff could not have been nicer and more helpful. a definate place to try.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
We we very impressed. The homemade ricotta with honey and mint was outstanding. The vegetable platter with crispy soft egg, quinoa and sweet corn was unique and perfect. The prices reasonable and service friendly and attentive. All was great and the owner stopped by to share her artistic vision. A good experience and a good story.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great new find!
Excellent decor, wish my apartment could be decorated like this restaurant! Great food and like having a new(er) option to go to in that neighborhood.
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a very enjoyable Sunday night dinner. This place does everything right, even the chicken.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Could be a destination choice
Food is memorable: great kale salad, best short rib I've ever had and the fish & chips were just perfect. Nice atmosphere and excellent service. Only caveat is the seating arrangements. Mostly tables for six plus two (tiny) tables for two floating in the middle of the room. If you like communal seating or are part of a group this is the place for you.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
went on a date here thinking it would be good food and a hip atmosphere. Nice small space, communal tables which I did not know. Group of woman took over the restaurant with their volume level. which made it unbearable. lots of plates, small tables.
Food was Great though!

Great City Escape for a Night
Had dinner with a friend a County the other evening. As you enter the restaurant, it feels like you've materialized to the country. Beautiful rustic space with reclaimed wood ceilings and walls. Nice bar with great happy hour deals and handmade lotions, rustic antiques and shelving lining the walls. This is clearly a fram to table place! We had the Tuscan kale salad which had regular curly kale that night with pine nuts and lemon vinaigrette. Very good. My friend had the shaved fennel salad which was quite delicious. The cavatelli was rich with earthy flavors including hand cut bacon, mushrooms, mint and other herbs and some cheese. I couldn't stop eating it. We also had the house made ricotta which was amazing. I would highly recommend.
10/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
I tried this out on a whim (thanks OpenTable!) and I loved the friendly staff and the excellent food. I particularly liked the salmon tartare on a deep fried rice crouton, the vegetable platter with a delicious soft egg.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I passed by here one day and thought it looked cute so I came by for dinner that night. I was pleasently surprised with the food and the service. The ricotta small plate is phenominal. It was all fantastic and I'm so glad I came by since it's close to where I live I'll definitely be back.
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fresh, creative and amazing!
We took our niece here for her 16th birthday and from start to finish the experience was fantastic. Debbie the host and owner, wait staff and chef all made it a very special time. Debbie is so warm and friendly she made us feel as though we've known her for years! The house made ricotta with honey, chile, mint and olive oil on crunchy bread was the best I've ever had. Salmon was fresh and delicisous. The burger was done perfectly and one of the best ever. And for dessert you MUST have the bread pudding. Beautiful atmosphere make you feel like you were out in the country. Please give County a try! You won't be disappointed! There are communal tables but we had one for the 3 of us. Can't wait to return!

Fabulous dinner at County
Great vibe for hanging with friends - lively yet comfortable and cozy.
Everything was delicious: short ribs that melted in your mouth, oh-so-moist and tender chicken, pork tacos with just the right quac and kick, filling and meaty hamburger, fresh and balanced salads, mysteriously light and airy fried fish, and homemade ricotta with honey and toasted artisan bread to die for. Don't forget to leave room for the bread pudding - it's sweet and warm and tart with a hint of booze. And the cocktails were tasty and powerful. All in all, a very reasonably priced restaurant for very good food. A lovely night out. Will do it again for sure.

Another great spot in the Flatiron
Lovely, cozy little restaurant in the Flatiron. Interesting menu, wonderful food, friendly staff and very good service.
Hard not to recommend!

Had family in from out of town.who is a foodie Really enjoyed food and all wait its recommendations were great. Really interesting cocktail menu. Fun night
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food, cool rustic ambience
Food was great, went with a group of 5. Ordered lots of food to share. Stand outs were the ricotta, burger, and chicken, although everything we ate was delicious. My only complaint is drinks and service were slow.

County = Comfort
So far I've found my early experiences at County to be positive ones. I've only been there at lunch and I really like the lunch menu that offers small bites along with a nice selection of salads and sandwiches. The kind of stuff I like to eat at lunch. The ingredients are fresh and the portions are perfect. What's especially nice about County is the interior space. It's country-like with exposed wood that looks like it was stripped from a barn or a farm house. Combine that with the lighting which casts a warm glow and you have a comfortable environment to eat the comfort food!
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Absolutely loved this place!
Absolutely loved this place! In a time in NYC that tends to have more and more restaurants run under a major restaurant groups, it’s refreshing to go to one again where the owner still seats you and comes over to your table to talk. I look forward to returning soon!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Fantastic! A real find
I was first introduced to County last month by a friend while visiting NYC from London. I was so impressed with the food and service that I booked a table for a 1-day return visit to the city. Once again, everything was perfect. Already looking forward to my next trip to New York.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Amazing gem with FABULOUS food
Highly suggest that everyone check out County! Went with a group of friends and had a GREAT time -- bartender makes creative drinks and genuinely cares that you are satisfied with the taste! Food menu is unique and every item we had was better than the last. This is our new go to hot spot!
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great time, absolutely loved the food and ambiance. Could not have asked for a better spot for a "girls night"!
