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.

Our server was excellent, as was the host and greeter. Even the busboys and water servers were great. One minor point: it was somewhat dark inside. The votives on the table don't provide much light. It'd have been great to really see what I was eating, which was delicious. The wine was also great. I had a dry riesling from Long Island (!) which tasted amazing and paired nicely with my meal.

Seated outside on a warm summer night was most pleasant with good food and drink however there was a group of four with one rowdy young man who enjoyed hearing himself boisterously comment on passersby and get attention drawn to himself. When a diner kindly asked him to please lower his voice, he became antagonistic to the point the wait staff and manager had to come out to avoid a confrontation, and the other diners applauded. The management should have done more to quiet the unpleasant diner.

Bartender David is fabulous. The manager/ owner walking around was terrific. The seater was so sweet. Didn’t rush us to leave the bar to take our table. He gave us a table in the back where it was quiet and cool but the service was not good.
Entree came right on top of the salad. Food was decent. Chicken a bit overdone. Waiter was absent. We should have eaten at the bar.
The place is cool and I would give it another chance. Just make it clear at ordering that we need to space the meal

What happened? Almond has long been a Flatiron staple for good food at reasonable prices. No longer. First the air conditioner was out and then the food was mediocre at best. Too many choices to make this mistake again.

Always reliably good, Almond is our favorite spot for Sunday brunch after church. Their signature "Almond Hash" is fantastic and varies just enough to make it interesting and different.

As a transplanted to New Yorker I will never miss a chance to eat at Almond when visiting NYC. I love the atmosphere and the creative menu. And yes! a nice selection of Gluten Free desserts. Would love some GF options on the menu but the kitchen is so accommodating it almost doesn’t matter! Can’t wait for our next visit.

My first visit, just looking for a good place in the Flatiron District. Almond opens for lunch at 11:30am, which was a prerequisite. My client and I enjoyed the same prix fixe menu - a chilled avocado, creme fraiche soup, delightful ravioli stuffed with eggplant with tiny diced summer squash and zucchini overlaid. The desserts were okay-good (Chocolate Pot au Creme, Lemon Poppyseed Olive oil cake with icecream) but the appetizer and entree were superb. Service is attentive, friendly, but not overbearing. The space particularly at the window was nice and light, so sit there, as deeper into the restaurant felt a bit dark.

The food was very good, place is fun, however, it was so hot it was unreal. We kept our menus just to fan ourselves with them. It was cooler outside than it was in the restaurant and it wasn't even that hot of a day! I would not be back in the summer months given the sweltering heat in the restaurant, but will be back in the fall/winter when hopefully the restaurant isn't as hot...

Almond is the kind of place that has a lot of GREAT food, but most of the prices are not value for money. A salad consisting of about 3 pieces of little gem lettuce should NOT COST 15$. The most amazing dish we had, and we would order again is the spaghetti with lobster sauce (but I saw a lot of langostinos in there) with butter.

Very simple menu with healthy and not-so-healthy choices. Good wine and beer list, although a bit limited. The patio on the street was nice and cozy while still giving enough room between tables.

I've been to Almond several times and have always enjoyed it. Good food, service, ambiance, value. I picked it for a dinner with friends from out of the country, as I thought it would be an experience they would enjoy. It was a Mon night at 8pm. The service was extremely slow. Always hard to find someone to help. The air conditioner was barely on (we had to ask 3 times for them to raise it). They forgot one of the side dishes (they were kind enough to bring it after and remove it from the bill). All this on a night that had about 25% of tables occupied. Fortunately the food was very good (as always). Just a disappointing experience when you're entertaining friends from elsewhere. Not what I have come to expect from Almond over the years.

Food was great. Service was very friendly but it seemed they might have been a bit disorganized in the back. Apps came on time, dinner a wee bit slow but not too bad, but by dessert it was hard to flag people down. We came at 7:30 on a Thursday night.

Very creative, interesting menu. Somethings were tasty, like the asparagus soup, somethings were odd like the half-cooked sunny-side up egg on top of the flatbread. Personally, I felt it was a little overpriced for basic-ness of much of the food, but we did not order main courses, just lots of small plates. There was not much for people who did not eat red meat or seafood. Very jovial, loud place for 20-30 somethings.

Came here based on its reputation in Bridgehampton. Very pretty restaurant and nice vibe. Each of 2 couples ordered one price fixed 3 course meal and a second entree. Everything came out hot and as ordered. Nice selction of wine by the glass and attenive service. More of a Sat night than a Tuesday night dinner. Thought the prices were high especially the appetizers and seafood entrees. Very noisy and hard to converse with dinner companions. Very tight seating especially for tables for 2.
