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.

One of my husband and my favorite restaurants. The prefix menu is filling, gourmet, and a great deal. Wine is included with every course and they are generous with their pours. The atmosphere is laid back and lively while still providing a high-end meal. Would highly recommend this spot for a date night or a nice night out with friends.

The restaurant is small and unassuming from the outside, but the food and wine were incredible. We ate here for our anniversary and enjoyed every "course". And the price for everything was very fair.

I love going to Coarse. The dining experience it is always outstanding. The quality of the food with pairing wine, the attention to detail of the personnel and chef, the good ambience that they created now eating outside, makes it my 'to-go' place every time I have visitors who are foodies, and I want to impress.
It is a MUST GO restaurant in NYC.

Every course was better than the last and the wine parings were spot on! Service was excellent and each course timed nicely. Sadly, the outdoor seating was just so-so, hoping they give it some love now that the mayor has extended outdoor dining indefinitely.

We had a 7 dish course, with a wine pairing.

The food was good, but I did find some of their dishes to be too salty

Service was upfront and direct, not the best experience since it felt like they were trying to move us around as quick as possible

Wine pairing was a hit or miss some of the dishes went well while others didnt mix well at all

Celebrated my birthday with a few friends with a special dinner at Coarse and was blown away...again. It’s easily my favorite restaurant in Manhattan because the staff is amazing , the food is simply incredible and the atmosphere is a unique mix upscale-casual. This evening - we were six of us for my birthday dinner. We were greeted warmly - provided socially distant seating from the other patrons - giant pours with each of the seven courses served - and the staff took every measure to ensure our night was lovely. It’s not often to have a secret gem in Manhattan but I’m happy to let the secret out on Coarse. If you have the opportunity , treat yourself for a reservation and you will not be disappointed.

They are so amazing! Not only was the food so tasty, but I felt like I was transported to another country! Hospitality is truly their passion! They had very generous pours and was mindful of not just your water glass but your wine glass. It was paired so well to the courses too! I’m in love! I should have taken more photos!

Absolutely wonderful... one of those hard to get tables that is available when others have escaped the summer heat, and yet the summer is when the menu sings, with tartar and seared shellfish dishes paired with ripe summer vegetables and wines to match. Visit while you can...

I had the best experience here! I went the first weekend in March with my family and fiancé for my birthday. The chef greeted all of us with a glass of rose. We did the the larger coursed out dinner with a wine pairing. Everything was so fresh and each dish was better than the last. I’m not a white wine drinker and loved every hand picked wine they were giving us. Our chef/ waiter was very personable and gave us HEAVY POURS! I definitely felt I got my money’s worth there between the food and heavy pours. He would even leave the bottle on the table for us to pour more or just take a picture of the label so we knew what we were having. Every dish felt spread out and we didn’t feel rushed at all. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE! I go out to dinner a lot in NYC and this dinner was unforgettable.

Great tasting menu for the 30 somethings with a restaurant budget. Older more sophisticated palates may find that the seasoning overpowers the food. Allergy alert: the kitchen brought out 2 dishes that ignored the customer’s stated food allergy. Wedding mix sound track.

There aren’t robust enough words to describe the gem that is Coarse NYC. From the champagne greeting, the lighting, and thought provoking phrases embedded into the decor to the eclectic music infused atmosphere, every detail is designed to wow the senses. If you go, you must have the wine pairing with the fixed menu. The choice of flavor profiles make each wine a flawless companion to its paired course. The chef's execution is simply exquisite, each course providing a nuanced balance of visual beauty and taste that leave me longing for my next visit. I've eaten in some of the finest restaurants all over the world. Coarse NYC is in my top five. You won't regret spending an evening with Vincent and his team.

Four diners entered for the first time with high standards and low expectations, having not experienced Chef Chirico's work before. Four diners left Coarse beyond satisfied. The experience impressed, educated and entertained. We chose the $125 menu - a chef's selection with wine pairing. Each dish (there were either 7 or 8) was unique, delicious, with great presentation - think iron chef caliber. Wine pairings were exceptional. Chefs enjoyed interaction. Will definitely be back.

It was my birthday. I loved the food and the place. Its very noisy though. Everything was perfect besides the 1 hour wait (with reservation) and the fact that they forgot our dessert. When we asked for it,
the waiter said: the kitchen is closed but I was able to do something.
As if it was our fault they forgot. When it came it was a cream with some crumbled thing over it. In comparison to the amazing food and wine, dessert was a bit disappointing. But overall a very nice experience.

I went with my friend for a post-Valentine's Day dinner. We went at 6:30. The place was crowded even then. When we entered, we were offered "a drink". She clarified that it mean wine and it was included. She suggested Proseco. I said fine. So she brought me Proseco and Rose' for my friend. The Rose' was a surprise but it was fine.

The place was very loud with music playing the entire time. It turned out not to be a place for quiet conversation at all.

We ordered the large tasting menu for the occassion. My friend doesn't eat shell fish. We told them but the first dish was crab salad anyway. I ate both our portions and they didn't bring her a replacement. When there was scallop course they did bring a replacement.

The next dishes were all fine but not spectacular. The best were the Hamachi sashimi and Filet Mignon. The grilled Tuna was a disappointment since I'd read rave reviews of it. The best course turned out to be dessert.

Overall, this was a disappointment and, given the price, a major shortcoming on value. The food wasn't bad, but at this price it should have been spectacular and it wasn't.
