All good. It was my first time back for lunch since COVID. The food was delicious but must have been heavily salted because I was drinking water all night. Still on my go-to list.
I was surprised at how close the restaurant was to Penn Station. We walked there in about 10 to 15 minutes. I saw there was outside seating, but there was a cold breeze and it looked like we would be cold. We walked inside and was greeted immediately. We asked if we could sit in the back away from the bar area (which was very nicely decorated and plenty of table seating spaces). We were shown to a booth. Which was actually a nook with a curtain. It was completely private. This was wonderful, as we were meeting friends that REALLY wanted to sit outside. The drinks and food were very unique and tasty. When I went to the restrooms, I peeked outside to their patio. It was set up very nicely. Just not open at this time of the year.
This is called a brewery but they don't brew their own beer at this time due to a Covid disruption. Of the three meals ordered by our group, two met expectation. One of them was a huge plate with just a few morsels of sausage on it. That friend had to go eat more food after "dinner". Nice ambiance and staff was nice.
we had a party of 9 and were able to be seated outside. he food was outstanding. and all the appetizer and entree plates were wiped clean.
i haven't had Greek inspired fare for some time and this was awesome. the staff were excellent and catered to our needs.
Lots of private nooks for small groups to enjoy pleasant conversation without background noise. Excellent food and service.
I really enjoyed this spot! It was perfect to go to right before a show I was about to say. The ambience was great as well as the service. I only had dinner there but I would love to go back for a drink they looked amazing. My friend and I order the tacos are the fish and steak were both so good!
Food was very overpriced and not good. Their fish tacos were supposed to have microgreens, but came with parsley. The ratio of fish to guacamole made them just taste like mush. The drinks were very expensive too. They aren't brewing any beer now because of decreased crowds from pandemic.
While we loved the food and especially the many items that were shareable the fact that we were seated in a hallway across from the kitchen door was a huge negative. Since we were in this little hallway we did not get to see or experience the decor of the restaurant.
Interesting presentation. The Moussaka Taco was excellent, and unusual. It is not the standard prep of Moussaka, but was presented like a hamburger. No matter, the egg plant was buttery and melt in your mouth. It is a gem of a place in the neighbourhood.
The food here is some of the best I have had in NYC. Creative flavors. Absolutely delicious. Great vibe and the room is so cool. Highly recommended.
Excellent service, quality grilled meats, and they even gave a complimentary dessert for my sister's birthday!
4 people. 1 drink each. Bill was over $350. Stay away it’s not worth it
Food was good I had the lamb chops never had lamb before but it was nice that sauce was excellent I think the bar tender was a little busy or overwhelmed it was difficult for me to oder things so I just had the fig Julp and the donkey with my lamb chops and I say if the service was a little more attentive I would return
Went here for dinner and drinks with a friend group. My tacos were okay - I got the shrimp tacos, but, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, they had TOO much guac on them such that it was too rich to eat. The service was meh - never got our waters refilled and people’s food came out at different times.
We have lived in the area for the past year and just happened to stumble on this restaurant last night. It was a great find!
They have a happy hour menu online but no longer offer happy hour. French fries were soggy and beer was flat. Overpriced.
Service & Food - agonizingly slow, bad, and over priced.
I was looking last minute for a restaurant to dinner and drinks and Death Ave. was a perfect choice with delicious food and great wine choices.
We are frequent visitors to NYC from Boston and appreciate the diversity of its restaurants and what they have to offer.
The best things about this restaurant are its location and the fact that it isn't too crowded for brunch and the seating gives you space.
The menu is relatively large and varied, and all the food is well done.
We were there for a 5 person family brunch and everyone found something they could like.
It's expensive by our provincial standards but hey it's NY, right?
Great spot for after work drinks/dinner. I would definitely go back
I love this place. It's cozy, has a kooky layout, is homely and the food is original and fun. It's kind of like a high end bistro but not. The service is really good, the drinks are really good, the food is really good, it's just good. I also think this was the first time I liked fried pickles. Usually they're too oily but no here. I had the lamb shank and it was tender, savory and soooo good when it hit the lips. Right now you can't eat outside but once spring comes, this is where you'll find me.
GREAT Menu options, nice tasting and entree choices, everything fresh, never disappoints. Drink and wine selection also excellent. Frequent the restaurant or their bar next door at least once a week. Bar menu has limited food options however charcuterie or KimKraut great for two or for a group. Death Ave is our go to, so happy in our neighborhood.
A bit too pricey, layout in the back is a bit odd. Food was ok but not great
I know it’s hip Chelsea, but it was expensive for a quick, light lunch.
Great ambiance and loved the little nooks and eating areas. The room we were in was louder than expected without all the tables filled, but was totally bearable. Tacos and fried pickles were delicious! Definitely on my return to list, especially when it's warmer out and we can explore the outdoor area.
Amazing service, meal, ambience, drinks. Everything was fantastic. Highly recommended.
Beautiful labyrinthine restaurant, with excellent service, great drinks, and a surprising menu! Will be back.
Would love to have beer flights available for beer tasting as they are brewery anyway. Now tasting requires to buy 10-12 usd beers for each and not to finish them.
Food was excellent. The best lamb chops for a long time, same with the chicken soup. Crete salad was having maybe bit too much rucola (gets quite bitter that way), but I still liked it a lot.
Went on a Saturday night and we were literally the only table filled in the whole restaurant and the service was still terrible.
Cool space. The cocktails and beer are great. The food is overpriced and mediocre at best.An almost $30 moussaka that was fine. Tacos for almost $30 that are literally not nearly as good as $4 tacos from Tacombi. We got the braised cauliflower and shrimp. The cauliflower was hard, the opposite of braised. A $200 for 4 people where everyone left saying "it wasn't bad but it wasn't good."
Amazing server in the 1st half.
The food is so bad and the pricing for horrible food is just as bad. Don’t go no matter what you hear about this restaurant
restaurant is a bit too warm (temperature). Need to turn heat down
My friend and I were in the area for a show and had an amazing time at Death Ave for dinner and drinks. The staff kept us laughing, made great recommendations, and felt like friends. The food is delicious. Definitely give the fried pickles and truffle fries a try. They come with amazing sauces (one of the best BBQs I’ve ever had). We also chose the 8hr marinated octopus and the Byzantine sausage. There wasn’t a thing left on the plate! As drinks go, our top three favorites were the fig julep, the old fashioned, and the black martini. If you’re on the high line and was perfectly curated cocktails and well executed food...this is your spot.
Food was very OK. Staff was not particularly attentive. Ambiance was fine. Wouldn’t go back.
food was good but not hot when it arrived at table.
At first we were seated in the back dining room, which, at first, was quieter than the bar area. But when my guest arrived the table of young women next to us became so loud we had to move! The bar was quieter, although when the music got louder we had to ask for our server to have it lowered. Which happened, and so our meal continued in peace.
But the burger was so big, and the muffin do soft and crumbly it was difficult to enjoy.
So, ultimately, service was professional but the food was overpriced and poorly presented, and the beer overpriced and in not even pint glasses, that I can not recommend it as a good value. Pretty interior, however.
