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.

I arranged to meet colleagues at Little Park to go over some business issues. This was a great venue for that. The food was excellent. Service was good. Wine was good. I very much liked the look and the feel of the restaurant. Dinner took a little longer to come out than I would have liked, but fortunately we were busy chatting anyway. The noise level was such that conversation was easy. I will certainly go again.

This is my favorite restaurant in New York City. I feel so welcome, and the food is sensational. I only have one piece of advice. If the server tells you of a remarkable desert, one you look forward to all through the meal, you should order it when you order your apps and your main. But when I was there a few nights ago, the raspberry flans were all gone by the time we were ready to order dessert. We had joked about eating the flan first, before our crudo and the other joys of our meal. We should've done that. Now I know. So, I had the exquisite pavlova and was very happy.
So. Cheers to the staff and the chef for providing me and my best pals a consistently joyous, sophisticated, quiet, thoughtful dining experience.

The restaurant was empty and our food took a very long time and came out cold. Because we were headed to a show there was no time to have this addressed as we had to rush our meal.

The food was great, but the front of house needs some help. We had a 9:30p dinner reservation and waited almost 45mins for our table. Kind of defeats the purpose of a reservation. The service was slow and it took away from the overall experience.

Our dinner embodied the beginning of spring without being faddish - asparagus, ramps, morels, and more in ways it never would have occurred to me to make and some past my skill level. Our charming and efficient waitress guided us well, including warming me off a wine I didn’t like when she gave me a sample and to a delicious wine in the same price point. The room is uplifting. Only disappointment was dessert which was beautiful but not very flavorful. The bill was a surprise - I expected it to be much more.

Overpriced and ubderportioned. Though I had a reservation for 4, hostess tried to seat us at high tables in bar area, where it was noisy and people were hanging over the the tables. Had to complain to.manager to get a normal table.

Food was good jut not great. Portions of striped bass entree were tiny -- barely appetizer size -- and overpriced. Brussel sprouts starter was generous but average.

Restaurant living on chef's reputation, not it's own merits. Overall, no reason to return.

Little Park is very pleasant and the food is good, but the prices are out of line even for New York. Most things were 20% more than I am normally comfortable paying. For example, a modest portion of Risotto, at lunch was $30.00. We spent over $100 dollars for two entrees, a dessert, and two bottles of sparkling water. No alcohol, no coffee. At lunch. The food quality was good, and the staff was attentive; there were only two other customers while we were there. Price is the problem.

For a casual brunch, it's very good. For special food or atmosphere, it's just ok. The one really excellent aspect was the service--quite attentive servers and a maitre d' who checked in for additional requests.

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!

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.
