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, regional 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.

The food was not as good as the last time I visited. Also, was disappointed in our server. I ordered a side of potatoes and he didn't even mention that my order came with potatoes.

It was birthday brunch. Welcoming and inviting from the moment we arrived. Host was wonderful and ended up giving us a different table that was more spacious. Food and drinks delicious and service excellent.

extremely poor service, we waited an hour for them to even take our order and then after two hours we still hadn’t received our entrees. The manager was also extremely rude and not apologizing at all.

We arrived early before dinner seating so satay the bar. This gave us the opportunity to sample smaller portions of some of the regular appetizers. Both the lamb toguitos and the cauliflower appetizers were delicious. For entrees we had the banana leaf wrapped trout and the lamb with grits. Both were well prepared and beautifully presented. For dessert we had the sticky toffee date with crepe friche. It was very tasty. The only concerns were that we had at least 3 waiters and it’s was confusing. The other issue was the front door that was frequently left opening causing a draft.

We ate at the bar and had a great experience. Bartender was super friendly. Food was very good, although the steak wasn't cooked to the right temperature, they quickly rectified it.

The food was tremendous, but the service was a bit slow. The waiting staff was too small for the night, but that is the norm in the city these days.

Amazing dinner at Almond. I started with the butternut squash soup, which was delicious. I then had the striped bass with a side of Brussels sprouts. Absolutely wonderful. And I finished with the toffee cake, which was so lovely. The restaurant is beautiful and the service was fantastic. I look forward to going back very soon.

Kai was pleasant and knowledgeable. Entrees had good flavor, but weren’t remarkable. The apple crisp desert was more like a burnt granola, with not enough apple or ice cream for the serving of two.

Lovely, cozy decor, tables placed well apart. Our brunch entrees were delicious, and we’re looking forward to coming back to try others that looked great. Prices are reasonable for the neighborhood. Most importantly, our server,Kaia, was absolutely delightful- friendly, helpful, efficient and charming. We will be back!

Interesting food but very “relaxed” service. Very small cocktails and would skip them for one of the beers on tap.

We had a lovely dinner on the beautiful patio. We started with the pear endive salad accompanied by 2 local draft beers and yummy bread. We followed that with the mushroom risotto special of the day and the lamb with wild rice. Both were delicious.

We couldn’t decide what to order because there were so many wonderful choices. Since it was Thursday (risotto night!), we went with the mushroom risotto special: Yum! We also ordered the lamb shwarma dish. Excellent.

We sat outside and it was nice.
Cocktails were good. I like the barrel boulevardier!
My biggest beef, was that the fries were terrible. I don’t like thicker hand cut fries like that, particularly with steak frites, but they were also severely undercooked.

But we did have some of the freshest east coast oysters I’ve had in a while
