Less is always more. Restaurateur Sara Grizzle (formerly of Redemption Grill and Essex) and Food Network’s award winning chef, Abe Lopez, have teamed up to create a bright new spot in Manhattan’s East Village with the best Tapas ever plus other small dishes. The menu offers a taste of everything and accommodates every food preference, meat eaters and vegans alike. Serving Tapas lets a group mix and mingle. With a great wine list, a good selection of tap and bottled beers, as well as some of the most interesting cocktails around (try the Ginger Mojito), Poco is the perfect spot for a quick drink and appetizer, dinner, or a place to wind down after a hectic day.
The food is original and fantastic (Mac & Cheese & Lobster) and as well as a good price performer appealing to budgets of any size.
Everyone at Poco looks forward to serving you. Sara, one of the owners, is usually there and stops by each table to meet our guests. See you when you arrive.

Amazing experience. A bit on the loud side but my significant other and I aren’t uptight individuals. I set up a brunch to show him my random appreciation and decided on POCO. We both love to have fun & appreciate bottomless drinks so it was a no brainer. A lot of people were celebrating their birthdays in the basement where we were seated so it was, like i said, loud. But nothing uncomfortable. They were loud for good reason.. a celebration of life and amazing food and amazing drinks so we joined in countless time! Our server Angel, was absolutely amazing. We couldn’t get over how attentive she was to us and how although she had other large tables to assist, she never forgot about us. When we needed her, she was there and when we just wanted privacy, she let us be. I think probably the best waitress I’ve ever had. Enjoyed the experience and will for sure be back soon! Love you POCO & love you Angel girl !

The prices on the online menu are half as much as they were at the restaurant, but since the prices are not on the menu, we didn't know this until we had to pay. We wouldn't have ever came if we knew our brunch meals were almost 25 dollars a piece. Online they were listed as 10-15 dollars. We wouldn't mind paying that much if we knew it was going to be a fantastic dining experience, but the portions were smallish, the food was tasty but nothing special, and our server seemed hurried and wasn't very friendly even though it seemed like we were his only table.

It’s labeled as Tapas/Small Plates, but it’s not. The portions are generous.

Great brunch. Food was delicious. Bottomless Sangria, Mimosas or Bloody Mary's for an hour and a half. Waiter was excellent. All around nice experience.

Came here for Sunday brunch. Service was good and attentive. Drinks were constantly being refilled. But the food was unimpressive.

Made reservations in advance for four people and we were seated right away for Friday brunch. Not many places offer unlimited boozy weekday brunch but Poco does it on friYAYs and it was delicious. The food was on point and the drinks were always filled to the brim. The music was a mix of everything fun. The hostess was a lovely ball of energy and everyone loved her enthusiasm. I’ve been here a few times but will definitely make it a point to come back regularly.

This place was AWESOME!! Everyone was so warm and welcoming and made my friends and I feel so comfortable. We came on a Friday for brunch which is apparently the best time to go! Got free shots and they played bumpin music! Would 100% recommend for a group of people looking to have a fun time.

Brunch is always exceptional here! I’ve been stopping by every time I’m in town for the last 8 years. The lobster Mac is fabulous as is the sangria
