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.

My parents and I enjoyed Sunday brunch at Almond over the weekend. We had a variety of the dishes on the menu, our favorites being the Duck Confit Hash and the Pastrami and Eggs. The restaurant is quite large and we were sat in a nice booth close to the front windows which was perfect. Servers were very helpful in navigating the menu and super friendly, however became slightly less attentive when the restaurant started to fill up. Overall a great experience and we will definitely be back!

We had car trouble on the way there, so could not avail myself of the listed entrees. We had a quick meal at the bar of french fries and escargot. I would go back just for that. It was a early dinner for us at 530pm therefore very quiet. It's a large space so can imagine Friday and Saturday night being really loud.
We will return to try the entrees

Seated us despite our party not fully arriving on time! Very appreciated when we have a reservation. Great brunch as brunch reservations are hard to come by

Service was excellent - prompt, friendly, attentive, and kept the coffee hot and water cool. Bloody Maria end Mimosa were great. Food was well presented and prepared. Ambiance was nice, relatively quiet, good for families and get together with friends. Good mix of people - young, older. Oh, and don’t be surprised if a celebrity or two show up for brunch too!

I love the lunch menu. Lots of good sharing options. I had their house-made pastrami in a sandwich and it was wonderful.

It was surprisingly crowded for a Sunday brunch, but they accommodated our reservation even when we had to start later than originally planned.

I ordered the ricotta pancakes (3 med. size) and a side of chicken sausage. My friend ordered the french toast and a side of eggs. Neither of us were able to finish all of our food, but it was spectacular.

We ended up staying well over an hour there, but were never rushed out of our seats. Service was attentive and accurate. Would for sure go again!

Been to Almond several times.....it's our "go to" for a wonderful Sunday Brunch! Great menu diversity, always good food, fun (and attentive) waitstaff, and a casual, comfortable atmosphere. If you haven't tried it, you're missing a gem!

As always great service, food and ambiance. I was welcomed back and, after I mentioned that I loved the table, the immediate comment was that was noted for next time. Can’t beat that service....

Perfect early evening dinner. The food (lobster spaghetti) was great, the waiter was fun, and the atmosphere was romantic. Everyone makes you feel welcome. Oh, yes the shortcake with blood orange gelato was delicious too!

Had a great business lunch there, perfect low noise level and space for talking. I’ve also been there at night with my boyfriend indoors and in the summer seated outside. The ambiance is very cozy and a little rustic - especially with the big stone ovens going in the back. There’s also a good amount of space, it can be intimate without feeling cramped - they can probably accommodate larger groups too. Overall great space for all occasions be it friends, dates or business.

As usual our service was impeccable. Staff had a complete understanding of the menu and the restaurant. Our experience was a warm, cozy meeting of friends with laughs and great conversation, an experience made extra special by the great ambiance, host and servers. We’ll return again and again.

Very straight forward food. Clearly using fresh and simple ingredients.
Value of service/food vs price was excellent.
Nice long bar, lots of people eating there. Looked like fun.
Would certainly go back if in the neighborhood.

Almond is usually a good experience for me and a restaurant i return to town after time for brunch. The food is solid and drinks are good.
Not this time. Our party of 4 was placed at very last table possible in the huge restaurant, in the corner. I literally felt like we were being excluded from the rest of the world. There were plenty of other tables for four. Our waiter was dismissive and not very friendly. And when he spilled my husband’s Bloody Mary all over my jacket he didn’t even wince until I announced “oh there goes the Bloody Mary dripping on my jacket”. He then non-chalantly then said “oh do you want a napkin?”Well you spilled all over my expensive jacket which now smells like alcohol and you did not have a care in the world. I seriously would have made a bigger stink about it except it was my friends birthday and I don’t want to cause a scene.

The heat was broken so it was very cold. (They did give us a complimentary cup of tea.) My chair was broken and taped up and my sweater kept getting caught on it. My burger was well done, when I asked for it medium-rare. With all of that said, I had a lovely Christmas lunch with my wife, and it wasn't that expensive.

Sunday brunch was really great. We requested and got a corner table. Waitstaff was able to accommodate some extra veggies in my friends omelette. Mine was fluffy and delicious. Very good coffee. Not too noisy, lovely place. Would gladly come again.

Moule frites are so good, I always bring home the extra broth as leftovers even though all the musssels were gone!
