The Infatuation
8.1

A Tribeca restaurant from Andrew Carmellini that belongs on your Hit List, if not your bucket list.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The staff and food at Little Park left nothing to be desired. Everything was delicious. Highly recommend the Brussel sprouts!

Beautiful presentation paired with amazing textures and taste. I could not have had a better experience at a restaurant. The staff was attentive and patient. Jose deserves a mention for his wonderful recommendations and service. Thank you Little Park, I will visit you again.

For the last four months I have been in and out of hospital, nearly died and missed my birthday. For the first time in 4 months we picked this restaurant to have a lovely breakfast for my birthday. On entering I felt bad as we sat st the perfect table but a noisy patron was there, I felt bad but I asked to be moved.

I asked our server about the sandwich, I am Irish so maybe it’s a terminology thing but he said it’s toast breaded. It arrived and it was $19 for a burger bun, awful end of tomato and an egg. I showed my disappointment and asked for some toast. The server came back walked over to the person who sat us and made some derogatory comments. Honestly it made me feel the worst.

They then at 9am served us a scoop of ice cream which was sweet but it’s 9am and it sat and melted. There was no apology. The place was nearly empty so they had time to care.

Really disappointing!

I was looking for a upper class establishment for my birthday and I'm glad I decided to go to Little Park.
The inside is absolutely wonderful, the waiters are helpful, and the desert is out of the world! Make this a definite stop if you are in NYC.

This is just a lovely place. Everything about it is refined, yet casual. The space is contemporary and clean, with well-chosen, comfortable seating, tables, and lighting. The service is beyond reproach--a well-trained waitstaff is one of the most important aspects of a good restaurant--and here, it is topnotch. The menu is truly inventive--lovely combinations of flavors, new ideas. I had sea bass with pork belly and clams--it was absolutely perfect; the fish done to the second, the balance of flavors and textures remarkable. Dessert was a lime Pavlova surrounded by perfectly cut segments of fresh citrus--light, and an ideal way to end dinner. I loved it. All that said, Little Park is VERY expensive, with entrees starting at upward of $32.00. Add an appetizer, dessert, or wine, and you're way up there. I don't mind spending money for good food, but others might prefer to save up for a special occasion.

Unexpected gem! What beautiful presentation, flavor, and experience. I was a little taken aback by the prices and small menu as I just selected this restaurant and went on on a random weekday. Place looked beautiful and service was great.

Every bite and sip of my cocktail was absolutely worth every single penny and more. Five stars to the chef and great attentive service.

I would highly recommend and will happily be back.

A quaint restaurant in Tribecca. Ideal for a business breakfast. Quiet, not crowded. The menu is complete but also more interesting than the standard breakfast. Had the smoked salmon and bagel. A really generous portion of salmon.

I love Little Park, but something has changed. The food seemed less refined and more thrown on the plate. My risotto, which I have loved, was actually chunky. And the tuna crudo was unappealing and looked dead.

I will be back, but I hope you will be back too.

We were there for brunch on a Sunday. The room was only half-full, but the service was awful. Our server would go missing for fifteen minutes at a time, and while other servers would volunteer to help, they never followed through on any of our requests. It took 20 minutes for our drink order to be filled; the coffee cups on our table were left empty after repeated requests for refills. That said, the food was very good. If only the front of the house can be brought up to the performance standards of the kitchen.

I really appreciate the diverse menu that can easily accommodate for variety of dietary restrictions. Thoughtful vegetarian/vegan dishes are always a delight.

I thought the beet dish was very interesting. The tortellini dish was conceptually cool but taste did not live up to expectation. The steak was a bit too salty for my taste and the potato was way too dry.
Cocktails were solid.

Food wise the experience was above average for a restaurant at this price point but nothing spectacular.

My only complaint about the dinner was the service. Wait staff was mostly absent after initial order.
Wanted to order a wine after finishing my cocktail to pair with my main but couldn’t find a wait staff. Eventually I did manage to order the glass of wine but it came as I was finishing my main so the timing was poor.

Also after the bread and appetizer courses our dishes were not cleared so when the mains came it was a bit of a shuffle to make room and clear the table.

The waiter clearly forgot about swapping out the silverware for the steak main so the exchange was done quite haphazardly after the dish has already arrived.

This was the third time I've had a meal at Little Park, and the first two were outstanding. Not so much this time: I had come here for lunch two weeks earlier (during Restaurant Week) and loved the butternut squash soup (w peanut, turnip, curry leaf, & an emulsion), and was looking forward to having that soup again. So I ordered it again, but it was so heavily doused with strong curry that I had to send it back—it tasted nothing like the flavorful, delicate butternut squash soup I'd had here he last time. (I wonder if there was a different chef in the kitchen this time.) I replaced it with the heirloom beets w ancho chili, tiny dollops of whipped avocado, and beet chicharron, but found the beets rather bland and the beet chicharron a bit unpleasant. However, the crispy brussels sprouts and the risotto (w taleggio, black truffle, and vin cotto) were both excellent. Which just goes to prove that a satisfyling meal depends upon the particular dishes you order. I'll come back, but next time I'll ask more questions before I order.

Came here for a Restaurant Week lunch. Super nice staff. A very classy place. The food was absolutely delicious but the portions were a bit small, hence 4 stars instead of 5. Not sure if that was because it was the RW menu or if the portions are always like that. But aside from that, it was a fantastic experience.

Great food, good service. (Only downside was the coat check / reception lady not being around when I arrived and having to wait a while looking around for a host / anyone to pay attention when I was already late for dinner). Restaurant week dinner menu - great food but probably not worth the cost. Nice ambiance. Autumn leaves cocktail was well-worth it.

When we were arrived, a passing server told us that we would have to wait to be seated. We hadnt even asked to be seated yet. Ot was a very abrupt greeting. Once we were seated, it took forever for a server to come to our table. He dropped the menus and took drink orders, then someone else took delivered the drinks, and we didn’t see the server again for more than 10 minutes. When we ordered food and asked for substitutions due to dietary restrictions, we got a lot of “we don’t substitute that” kinds of answers. It felt pretty cold. I’ve had this experience often at breakfast at this restaurant.

I was disappointed in our brunch experience at Little Park. I had emailed about my gluten allergy and the manager had emailed that they could accommodate my food allergy. I alerted the server and asked to confirm the omelette was indeed gf. He said yes, and then was confused about what gluten was but said he’d double check with the chef. The wrong entrees were brought to our table and the gentleman delivering them was quite confused and insisted it was what we ordered, when it was not. We found our waiter who checked our orders and switched them out to the right ones but also looked confused again. Our water glasses were refilled and there was a hair in the water and we never saw our waiter again to mention it to him. The food was ok, but I expected better service from a place this expensive.

we have eaten at Little Park a number of times and always found the food to be incredible. A little uneven but the majority really smart and delicious small dishes. This last trip was a surprise. They seemed to have moved away from the idea of small dishes and had more standard entree size offerings. The food except for a one dish was average and one was quite a bit below average. Very disappointing particularly at this price point. A little sad for Little Park.
