A word from Sprig
SPRIG, a unique restaurant located in the north end of the lobby of the landmark Lipstick Building, brings the essence of Northern California cuisine to Midtown Manhattan. With a seasonal focus and support of purveyors from the tri-state area, the restaurant menus are touched with "sprigs" of simple genius plated to please the eye.

    Love this as an easy, casual dining option in Midtown. As a frequent biz traveler, I've been looking for a while for a regular restaurant that's not too expensive, offers interesting options, and delivers a good experience along with not-too-heavy food. I think I've found it. LIght, modern interior; a menu that feels fresh and original, even though it includes staples like burgers if your in the mood. I had a spectacular cucumber martini, and a satisfying spaghetti carbonara variation with a fried egg on the top and green veggies with the pasta. Exceptionally warm service.

    Enjoyed a delicious salad-duck confit. My friend had the tuna nicoise salad and also thought it was outstanding. Very comfortable seating with large windows making it feel light and airy. Waiter was anxious to please. Will definitely return to Sprigs for lunch.

    My party of 5 made a return visit as we were last there last Summer. The location, service and ambience are great, but several of us had sandwiches which came with a side of homemade "burnt" potato chips. The chicken club was good, but we let the waiter know that they need to address the chips situation.

    I really enjoyed Sprig!!! You can go with friends or a date. I had the Napa Valley Chicken salad and it was sooo delicious!!! My two friends had the turkey burger and they loved it. The highlight was definitely the jazz music. This is a must place to go to,and I will be back :)

    My friend and I ordered the Shrimp and the Tuna Salad. Both items looked and tasted stale. My friend did not even eat the Tuna as it was brown in the middle instead of pink. The plates came out within minutes of ordering which evidences that they had to be sitting in their refrigerator for more than a day. I will never dine there again!

    Dined on 1/10/2013
    Sprig is in the lobby of the Lipstick Building, but for a lobby it's surprisingly elegant and a nice atmosphere, with big picture windows. The crostini and the "tomato fondue" were ok, but didn't seem like anything special, just slightly unusual. The grilled vegetable salad was great if you like arugula, which I do. The best thing we had was grilled asparagus with a fried egg on bread, which was a complete surprised, and we asked the server if he recommended that or a different place, and he said that one. I think the bread also had cheese, and the combination was something new for me and totally great. It's nice to know it's in the area, but without a special (which we went with) it seems kind of expensive.

    AnneVIP
    Dined on 1/4/2013
    While the cioppino was really excellent, there isn't much about this place that delivers on its claim of Northern California cuisine, although they do seem to favor goat cheese. Surprisingly, most of the wines offered are not from California. The service was OK. The so-called homemade doughnuts were worst than many we've had from a grocery store pre-packaged box. The setting in the Lipstick Building is airy and comfortable. I wouldn't make effort to return.

    This was a wonderful restaurant that is not open on Saturday or Sunday! It is very quite because it seems to cater to the business-lunch crowd. We had a quite Birthday dinner on a weeknight, and it was enjoyable! The food was beautifully presented and tasted just as good! Private which affords the possibility of relaxing and getting to know someone! It really is worth a try...the Lipstick Building is a treat on its own!
