About

Located on the ground floor of Hotel on Rivington in NYC’s Lower East Side, CO-OP Food & Drink is based on the co-operative principle of bringing together different services and products under one space for everyone’s benefit. Under the leadership of Executive Chef Victor Startek, they bring together different ingredients, flavors and cultures that reflect the diversity that is the Lower East Side.

This philosophy allows guests to enjoy a variety of plates such as the Tuna Tuna Yuzu Sushi Roll (w/ spicy tuna, tuna, avocado & yuzu dynamite sauce), Shredded Pork Belly Tacos (w/ Ancho BBQ, Smoked Creama, Beets), Fried Chicken Biscuits (w/ ranch & pickled jalapeno aioli) and Miso Cured Salmon (w/ peanut sauce, watermelon radish & pickled celery root). In the spirit of a co-operative, most of the dishes are designed to be shared family-style through multiple courses.

The three drinks and entree for brunch for $22.00 is a true bargain. Drinks (Mimosa, Bloody Mary or Bellini) are definitely better than average. Entrees choices were extremely varied, with a knockout chicken and waffles. That day it was also very quiet. We, a group of seven, could actually hear each other. Maybe no one knows about this place.

As always. My friends and I loves coming here for brunch.
They have decent food (love their chicken waffle) and a lot of seating.

You can easily get a table for 8 on Sunday noon. Not every place can find this easy sitting experience.

Waiters and servers are basically non-existent in this restaurant and this is a warning that you will get very poor service. I went on a Friday night with a girlfriend and the restaurant was totally empty except for 2 other tables. No one was there to take us to our table and we had to wait ~8 minutes (very confusedly) for someone on staff. The food was very mediocre (DO NOT get the chicken tacos). I would highly not recommend this place.

I was in charge of selecting a reservation for my best friends birthday and this turned out to be and awful experience and embarrassing for me as the person who was supposed to plan a fun dinner / night out. When we first sat down the waiter asked the birthday girl if it was her birthday which was supposed to be a surprise (way to go!). We were asked about our order before being given restaurant week menus. This should have been given to us from the start. It took forever for our drinks to come out, about 30 minutes. When we finally ordered food (5 of us ordered from the restaurant week menu and 2 did not), the first appetizer came out for everyone ordering from restaurant week and the 2 people who ordered from the regular menu had ALL of there food come out - appetizers, main dishes, side dishes. They obviously felt funny eating their main dish when we just had our first appetizer so they waited to eat it and it was awkward and it got cold. About an hour later the restaurant week menu orderers had their main entree come out...our 2nd appetizer was never served. We had to ask about it and it then took another 45 minutes. When our desert came out the birthday cake was not brought out for the birthday girl which we told the hostess and our waiter about at least 3 times. We had to tell them again and then about 20 minutes 2 people came out with cake (after we all already ate our dessert). COMPLETELY DISORGANIZED. Dinner was over 4 hours which caused a problem for all of us to go out after dinner and some people missed the train they planned on catching back home. I would highly not recommend.

I have heard great things about the atmosphere of this restaurant so decided to come for restaurant week with a friend. The waitress would come to the table and leave and disappear for 30 minutes at a time. The food came out cold the first time, and another waiter happily took the food back, and brought it back cold again. Then the dessert choices on the restaurant week menu were no longer available at 8PM on a Thursday night. Very disappointing experience.

Great find! Stumbled across this place trying to find a local place to take my boyfriend out for a nice, romantic birthday dinner. Pleasantly surprised that it was part of the hotel because it definitely didn't feel like it at all. The service was amazing and Leo our server was terrific. He totally went above and beyond by seating us at a nice corner table and he even sent out a birthday dessert. Thanks so much for making it a great night. Can't wait to go again!!!

If you are looking for boozy brunch, this is the place to go.
The menu advertise $22 for brunch with 3 glasses of drinks.
3 of us went there, and they gave us 2 PITCHERS. Not 9 glasses, but 2 PITCHERS.
That is like 12 glasses. We can't even finish them!!

Food taste... it was decent. I won't said it is extraordinary. But the Plating looks very fancy.

Portion are decent. I had country fried steak w/ 2 eggs, biscuit and gravy, they give me 2 palm size steak, 1 biscuit and 2 eggs (your way). I asked for extra gravy... that was the trick. They charged $3 for 3 soup spoon that much of gravy... they should had told us they charge for the gravy.

Other than that, I am happy with Co-op.

I loved everything about this place the decor, food and service were exceptional. Only one small flaw,after course 3 it takes to long before the final two courses to arrive but at least it made us just a little bit hungry again and the dishes were so good it was worth the wait. I asked for my steak medium and for once this year, I found a restaurant (Co-op ) that does it to perfection. You will not be disappointed with the food or the atmosphere of beautiful patrons, noise level low enough to allow for private conversations, no need to raise your voice. Only con, food service could be faster, but over all, great restaurant.

Reserved an 8 pm table for 5. Many tables were vacant, but were filled by 10. We asked waitress if we could choose drinks to be made - other than what was on the menu & seemed to be annoyed by the question & answered no. Assuming her reaction had to stem from the fact that customers must perpetually ask same question, since drink selection was slim. Menu only provided dry wines & brute champagne. Spouse & I Chose mojitos. Waitress Was annoyed when asked for new drinks because not well made, but accommodated us. I chose mango Bellini & my Spouse had Stella beer. Bellini wasn't great. Delicious apps-edamame, sweet potato sushi rolls & peppers. Enjoyable Entrees-fish & chicken tacos, Ginger chicken. 3 Dessert to only choose from-all bland.

It's rare to find a restaurant with good food and good ambiance. This place had both! I loved the decor and the food choices (from tacos to sushi) and the drinks were yummy too. It's not cheap though so I would recommend this place for special occasions.
