Very enjoyable dinner. The emphasis is on local suppliers, which, unlike most similar places, does not push up the prices excessively. The shrimp appetizer was a bit difficult to handle--like mini-lobster tails in the shell--but the farro was excellent. Excellent main dishes came with interesting vegetables and grains. Short but very good wine list, fortunately not just local selections; liked the idea of carafes which give better choices for those at the table.

Delightful modern restaurant. Limited menu but hard to choose between such enticing options, and the meal did not disappoint. Attentive but unpressured service. A great midtown spot, especially with The Bar Downstairs for a cocktail before and after.

The menu has a variety of tasty dishes made from simple and local ingredients, but the dishes are complex flavors and truly enjoyable. Who knew kale could add flavor in five different dishes? A quiet spot (in the absence of the occasional business crowd from the hotel), unusual in the midtown Grand Central area.

It is nice to find a reasonably priced, but really good fresh food place for dinner in this area. I went for a business dinner, and it was a perfect choice, but I would go back with friends too. A nice wine selection.

Great food and atmosphere
Dined with two friends and we all thoroughly enjoyed out appetizers, salad, entrees and wine. The restaurant is clean and tables comfortably spaced. We hadn't seen each other in quite a while and we were able to hold a conversation as it wasn't too loud on a Monday night. The restaurant had been recommended to me by numerous colleagues and I'll definitely return. Good variety and very fresh food.

Compliments to The Shop
I recently had the pleasure of dining at The Shop while staying at the Andaz on 5th Avenue. The food was superb, seasoned and cooked to perfection. The menu is on the small side but diverse enough to satisfy any craving. The service was attentive, professional and friendly. A wonderfully relaxed atmosphere lends to an excellent dining experience. I would highly recommend.
