Sunday Lunch
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.

Been here several times for brunch and it usually is better than this. Both my companion and I ordered the Pastrami and eggs. A very small amount of eggs and the pastrami was very dry. It seemed like it was reheated.

Nothing much ever changes at Almond which is the secret of their success. Nice bar scene, good food, fairly priced for 2020. A steady presence in the area.

Nice place. Good location with pretty accessible street parking if needed. Menu was good for sharing or for ordering own entree.

What a great discovery. Loved the vibe, the music, the attentive but non-invasive service, and the choices. I had the eggs with sausage, with salad on the side. Great comfort food! I will be back.

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!

Went for a birthday dinner and started off great but the service was not up to par. We ordered appetizers that never arrived as our main entrees came first. Took a while to reorder drinks and then we would receive drinks when we didn’t order it which ended up being on the house. The server ended up leaving early or shift ended and did not notify us. We didn’t know until a new server came up to advise he would take care of us. Would have been polite for the original server to inform us. I’ve been here several times and will go back because the food is good service does need a bit of an improvement though

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

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!

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.

Almond has very good ambiance, service and cocktails. Food is good but nothing special, the pricing is reasonable for NYC standards.
