Farm-to-table
Chef Vincent Chirico knows food. Raised in Brooklyn to parents of Italian decent, and having spent part of his childhood in the homeland, Chirico’s early years were peppered with all the cultural advantages of a Mediterranean lifestyle. In those early years, Chirico developed a reverence for simplicity and a palate fine-tuned to natural flavors. With a love of travel came further developments in the shaping of Chirico’s culinary perspective, including time in Japan where he grew to love local techniques, and preparations from the best kitchens in Paris and other European epicenters of flavor

This is an unreal, must go dining experience. I don’t know how this place hasn’t blown up yet but go before it’s impossible to get a reservation. Definitely one of my top 5 dining experiences in my life - the food was simple and flavorful and I want to eat it over and over again. And even though the wine pairing is included in the fixed cost, they DO NOT SKIMP and will refill your glass multiple times over. The staff went above and beyond and we kind and relatable. Will be back again even though I hate repeating!

Came here to celebrate my friend’s birthday and had an amazing time! We were blown away by the food and the service- the concept is really cool- the chefs basically surprise you with a series of different dishes and serve you themselves. My favorite were the tuna and the ravioli. We chose the wine pairing and highly recommend. Will definitely come back!

The food was good, but even for a price-fixed menu in the west village, was a total rip off in terms of food to cost. So loud we were all hoarse afterwards. Wine wasn’t good. Overall would never go back or suggest to anyone— there’s a reason they have plenty of space on weekend nights. Bad experience, 1/10.

We went to Coarse for a birthday celebration and chose the Spontaneous Tasting menu with wine pairing. There were many open tables, but the server still was not able to coordinate the wine well with the food. Once he served the wine long after the course had arrived, another time he would have missed it altogether and I had to ask him whether there was a pairing with the course. The wines themselves were fine but uninspired, not a single one stood out as an excellent wine. As for the food, we found the quality quite uneven. Some courses were exceptional, such as the crudo and the (single) ravioli, others were less exciting. I particularly found that the hot butter poured over the raw tuna ruined the otherwise very good dish. I rounded up to 4 stars for food but would have given 3.5. Overall it felt like a place that wanted to be more but needed work on food and wines and could not quite get the service right.

Repeat outstanding. I think this is one of the best restaurants in NYC. The whole family loved it. For me, the standout was tuna with a butter glace sear. My wife and son lived white asparagus with cream, cheese, and celery micro greens, and my youngest the duck. But everything was AMAZING. And then there was dessert...

eatg on a Sunday eve provided quiet with plenty of space between us and 2 or 3 other sets patrons --- one foursome of whom were quite audible. So eatg when full house wd not be conducive to talk. Food was rich and all told, with 2 sweet ending courses, a total of 7. We were not hungry when we left. It did span 1.5 hrs as proprietor predicts. Wine pairing good... with a few ounces per course (except dessert) bringing wine qty. a little disproportionate to food qty. We would go back periodically. At $99 w/wine and $70 without wine it seemed priced fine for the experience. The chef choices across many of the courses are slightly salt and slightly sweet forward --- so the overall experience was one of rich food, espec due to wine. We will be interested in trying the Vegan Lunch. Dinner was all pescatarian.

Outstanding food & service! Vincent Chirico adds some ingenious flavors to straightforward, simple dishes that never disappointed. The laid back atmosphere made it feel we were in the kitchen with the Chef all night, yet the food was of a caliber worthy of the most formal dining experiences in the City. Vince served many of the dishes to us personally, reflecting the passionate care he and his partners have clearly taken across all aspects of the restaurant. Bravo!

Had an early dinner before going to Sleep No More. We were the first guests to sit and the staff could not have been more friendly. The chef came out several times to speak with us and made sure we were out in time for the show. The food was spectacular — hard to pick a favorite, but the ravioli and brown butter yellow fin were especially memorable. Wine pairing was perfect. Loud music playing, but it worked!

This place is phenomenal. Once you come in the doorway, you are given wine! The head chef greets you at your table to ask for any food allergies. This was a lovely gesture. The wine and food were paired beautifully. I especially love the high quality of service, but the vibe of the restaurant is down to earth. Highly recommend!!

Great food, great service. Would happily return. We were a bit hesitant to to go in not knowing what we would be served. But once the first course came out realized we were in for a treat. Everything was great. A personal favorite was the white asparagus.

If you're a fan of food and wine this place is definitely for you. We did the standard tasting menu with the wine pairing and it was delicious! We were full but not in pain by the end. They do offer fewer as well as additional courses but we found the middle of the road to be perfect. The service was attentive without being overbearing. It's a foodie's paradise without being pretentious. I highly recommend it!

Our meal was wonderful! We took some friends from California who are real foodies and they loved it. One is a vegetarian and the options were just as amazing as the main dishes. My only issue is the that the ventilation in the kitchen is lacking so the restaurant was quite "smokey" and the music was loud which caused the crowd to be a bit loud. However, the food was creative, well balanced and delicious and paired perfectly with the wines. Vince, the chef/owner was there the night we were there which made the evening even more special as he is super cool and a great host. Love this place!
