Farm-to-table
Seasonal, Local & Artisanal Since 2001

Co-founder and chef Jason Weiner creates seasonally focused ever-changing menus that are guided by a market driven ethos. We highlight our personal relationships with growers, fishermen, artisans and winemakers.

Our menus are artisanal and market driven featuring some updated takes on classic french/mediterannean cuisine, ethnic street food and lots of stuff in between.

We are obsessive about the handmade...We hang our own charcuterie, grind our own sausage, ferment our own kimchi, dry age own steaks, and smoke our own fish & bacon.

The wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines. Specialty cocktails, NY craft beers, and raw bar selections, along with the entire menu are available at the restaurant’s 25 seat bar.

Great food and ambiance. Been there several times and it is always good. However, this last time, it was really hot and their a/c didn't seem to be working too well because it was hot in the place.

Almond is consistently good. The menu is filled with great options, and the environment inside and out is a warm and welcoming one. I've been going there with friends for years and it's still my go-to Flat Iron favorite. The servers are great!

Really great service. That night, the AC was not working, and the hostess called me to let me know. We decided to stay, and she said she set aside a table at the front for us, which was cooler. The decor was lovely. The food was pretty good...soft shell crab, an imaginative cauliflower tabouli, scallops. Would definitely go back with a group of friends, as it was such a nice experience.

Good food but a little overpriced. Large space can get very noisy. Our main complaint is that it was TOO DARK! We could not read the menu, see the food that we ordered and could not see the check. Lots of light fixtures--just very low wattage. Almond is a pretty place and the food tasted good but we never saw it.

We went to Sunday brunch and arrived shortly before 11 and were able to sit outside. Service was very prompt, courteous, and attentive. Food was delivered in very good timing and each of us was very pleased with both quantity and quality of the items we ordered. There is a nice blend of professional and friendly service; as well as a warm ambiance to whole place. Will return again!

Farm to Table food was terrific. Bonus: In nice weather the glass doors that would normally form the front window are turned on a vertical center axis so they separate each of the tables for 2 in that indoor/outdoor section.

It was a special occasion and the waiter came out with a dessert and sparkler. Although I did check the box off Indicating that it was a special occasion, I wasn’t expecting that - thought they might do something if we had ordered a dessert but we did not . My niece loved it
