A word from Zoe
Chef and owner Zoë Feigenbaum's light-filled restaurant is done in honeyed midcentury modern. The American menu also glances abroad: turkey rillettes, octopus with labne, harissa and olives, stuffed cabbage soup and tongue tacos.
Zoe's wine list looks toward old world style wines and is rounded out by a carefully selected list of Apertif and Digestif.

Zoe takes weekend brunch seriously, (as any true New Yorker would) so get there early for the homemade sticky buns and buttermilk biscuits. A great spot for pre-movie oysters and bone-in ribeye steak (Landmark Sunshine Theater is around the corner) or a quiet dinner with friends. Large parties and groups can be seated along the long banquette seating. Zoe is also a great choice for those who like to dine at the bar- Zoe's counter is specifically designed for dining and is a great place to enjoy their $1 Oyster Happy Hour and a half from 5:30-7:00 Monday-Saturday.

Diner Reviews
  • "Down home cooking from a from the best places on Earth."

  • "Service was excellent. Cocktail was outstanding. Food was good. Impressed with so many gluten dairy free options. The food was healthy/tasty but didn't wow me like the drink. The space is nice but the floor was sticky which the only thing that put me off a bit. I will be back to try other menu options."

  • "Food was great and the menu, while small, had some unusual and delicious selections. I would go again in a heart beat."

  • "Buttery biscuits, yummy bacon, and their blueberry pancakes with lemon curd are transcendent. Only drawback is the small, overcrowded space. It's a really tight fit between tables and, at least for brunch, they fill up quickly. Best to try off hours if you can."

  • "Nice location, on a quiet street. Good quality ingredients. I had the oxtail with chicken thigh and bucatini chile, and truffle. It was really delicious. I licked the plate clean pretty much, the meat with perfectly cooked and the chicken thigh was incredibly juicy. The pasta added great depth and layer to the dish."

  • "The title says it all. All young inept white girl servers who avoided eye contact and hated everyone. This place is SMALL and there were plenty of servers and yet. Never going back!"

  • "Zoe is smarestaurant in the LES. The ambience was very romantic, lightly dimmed by candle lights, and peaceful enough for you and your date to have a conversation. We had the pre fixe dinner $65/person which included one entree, an appetizer dessert to share and unlimited drinks for 2 hrs. We both had the crabcake as an appetizer and it was decent. However, the entrees were heaven In your mouth. I ordered the steak with mash potatoes and greens and my boyfriend had the lambchops with feta cheese and eggplants. The steak was cooked to perfection and was very filling. my boyfriend enjoyed his entree as well.never had fried brussel sprouts it was seasoned very well. we both enjoyed our dnner and will definitely come back again."

  • "We made reservations at Zoe because we were going to be visiting NY and looking for a place close to our hotel and the reviews looked good. We were there on Valentine's Day and it was really crowded. Very small place so we were pretty jammed in. The staff was very good, a little harried but very nice. We thought the food was fine - not great. It was a small fixed menu for Valentine's Day. Overall it was fine - we'd like to try it again when it's a little less crowded."

  • "This is our second time back at Zoe. The restaurant is small but homey. The brussel sprouts are excellent and a must to try. The portions are pretty large especially the whole cornish hen and the whole fish. The serice was very attentive. I would definately return again."

  • "We have loved Zoe on previous occasions but are not likely to purchase any more groupons. The menu is light on health.. Too many carbs and sugar included in the groupon and not enough greens. On 3 previous occasions the waitress was kind enough to swap a salad for the unwanted dessert (I am diabetic). Not so this time. The chicken lacked flavor. The stuffing was gluey. The Brussels sprouts were, however, excellent"

  • "This was my third visit to Zoe for brunch. It gets better every time. Skip the shrimp and grits - too much hype. The rest if the brunch dishes are amazing, especially the shakshouka and the skillet."

  • "The food was nice, and the restaurant had a nice feel to it, but it is small, a tiny bit cramped and the music was too loud. I think also we were forgotten about after the main meal and had a long wait before somebody turned up and realized we didn't have dessert menus. At the end of the night a waitress followed us onto the street and we had a strange conversation that my friend said was a reference to the tip. We'd left a tip on the card so the experience was odd (though the waitress was very nice so it wasn't unpleasant). It's worth a vist if your not bothered by noise as the food was very enjoyable."

  • "In a space height with morning sun Zoe offers a creative array of Bloody Mary concoctions, eggs done jus about any way you want and the best Reuben sandwich anywhere. No espresso, cappuccino or dessert but service was friendly and place had a great neighborhood vibe. Was a good pick for lunch before a Sunday matinee at Dixon Place performance space."

  • "crispy fried and fluffy. Best I've ever had. Comes with lemon curd--I've never willingly eaten pancakes without syrup. Worth it! (great place for dinner too! I love the brussels sprouts)"

  • "I heard about Zoe while watching an episode of Chopped on the Food Network. During a trip to NYC during the holiday season I discovered the restaurant was serving Christmas dinner. The space is small, but clean and the staff is attentive without being interfering. My meal stared with a black kale salad with fried poached egg. Second course was lamb breast served two ways garnished with chick pea and caper gastrique accompanied with crispy brussel sprouts and cream biscuits. The lamb was tender and juicy.The third course was a Jamaican black cake garnished with hard sauce -the cake was moist and sweet. I hope to visit Zoe again to try the brunch."

  • "Came here with some friends over Christmas week. The Chef Zoe actually came to our table and helped to describe the food and preparation of dishes. Very cool touch. She seemed laid back and intelligent. Added to the warmth of the meal. As for the food itself: The starters were great. Fish tacos and kale salad very good. The brussels sprouts were quite tasty however, there were 50 of them on the plate so, at first glance- we were all a bit turned off. Maybe as a side dish but even then- less is more. As for the main meal, the pork 2 ways was terrific. The burger was really good as well. The chicken dish had the same issue as the kale salad. Way too much on the plate. In fact, it was overflowing and my friend couldn’t cut her chicken."

  • "Booked Zoe for my mom and myself for Christmas dinner. I had waited a bit too long to make reservations for the holiday and had to spend a couple of hours finding a place that was open on the 25th, had good reviews, and would be an acceptable combination of price, location, and menu. Zoe fit the bill, but I had no idea what to expect since I was a first-time diner. I couldn't have been happier with the ambience, the service, and most importantly, the food. Each course was superb. I give particular plaudits to the main "lamb two ways" dish. I was so overwhelmed (in a good way) with wonderful flavors that I was giddy. It didn't hurt that drinks were included in the prix fixe, which made it much more like a family dinner at home. Thanks, Zoe!"

  • "This Xmas my family enjoyed a lovely brunch together in a small neighborhood restaurant. We usually go to a place in midtown that is overrated, noisy and I try to order very little on the overpriced menu, but we adore the staff. 2013 I vowed to find something better and that's Zoe. I had the fried chicken w/ biscuit and my husband had the shrimp and grits both were solid dishes, and our son was happy with his toast. We wanted to linger over a good cup of coffee and stretch our time, but alas we needed to get back to preparing Xmas dinner and calling family."

  • "Maybe the restaurant was understaffed and not up to the challenge, but with the simplifications of a largely set meal, including set drinks choices, one would think that one would not have to ask multiple times to get a wine refill, or have one's complete order delivered."

  • "More people should know about this place! Excellent cocktails, food and service. Great mid century feel interior. Lovely for a romantic dinner. Try it, you will like it!"

  • "Amazing cocktails, good desserts and lovely service. Food is overwhelmingly fried so didn't work well for us."

  • "I dined at Zoe with a friend two nights ago. The food was fantastic and innovative. I had the most incredible desert (Baked Alaska). The appetizers were innovative, fresh and well presented. There cocktails were fun and well prepared. The owner, Zoe, came out to talk to us after our dinner. It felt really great to be treated so well in a beautiful local restaurant. Try it....you will like it!!"
