What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.2

Tuome in the East Village is doing something totally different with familiar Asian menu items.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

This was our first time at Tuome, and we could not have been happier. The food was genuinely innovative and perfectly prepared. They have a small, but carefully selected menu that works really well, as well as a nice and reasonably priced wine list. Best of all, the service was warm, unhurried (a wonderful and rare thing in NYC!) and personal without being overbearing. We didn’t even realize they have a Michelin star until we got there, but it makes complete sense that they do, and it’s well deserved. I’m sure this will be the first of many visits for us!

We had to stand and wait even for 5 minutes after our reservation time. Was too crowded and noisy. Would not recommend for an intimate date night. Seems good for drinking and catching up with buddies and being freely loud. Food was great.

I had not been back for two years, so many other places to try. The others were all a waste of time, I could eat at Tuome every night. Great food, subtle, inventive and just plain delectable. Friendly warm service too.

In a relaxed, cosy atmosphere, the food was wonderful at this neighbourhood feeling restaurant. Coming from Europe we found the service a little too pushy and quick, in that American way of service. Would definitely come back for the food, but not a celebratory or special occasion meal.

Their signature dish the "pig out" was really awesome, the meat was tender and lean, even being pork belly. The top was amazingly crispy and the sauces that they brought enhanced the favor tremendously .

Our hostess and waiter were personable, knowledgeable, attentive, efficient, and neat. It made for a great dining experience, and the food definitely made it even better! We ordered about half of the menu (because why not), and every single dish had a unique taste. Every dish was well-presented both aesthetics-wise and flavor-wise. All of the flavors blended excellently yet also stood out on their own. I would come back to try the rest of the menu.

This was my second time at Tuome and both times have been great. All the dishes are unique and delicious. I really couldn’t single anything out and have had over half the menu at this point as my first time was a large group for a birthday that did family style. I’m personally a fan of chicken liver and my fiancé is not and she liked theirs a lot so it’s def exceptional. The Wagyu beef medallions are awesome and the grilled octopus is some of the best I’ve ever had. Perfect crisp outside and juicy inside. The pork for 2 is so good. The deviled eggs were different recipes each time I went and both were great. The quail was tasty as well. It’s all good. A little pricey but duh... it’s a Michelin Star restaurant. I’ve been to similarly priced restaurants and left feeling cheated. Never at Tuome. It’s pricey because it’s great quality food, prepared in interesting ways, and with great service.

Our group of 5 had a wonderful meal, sharing different plates family style. It was fun to try different dishes and flavors. We especially enjoyed the Pig Out (crispy skin roasted pork for 2), chicken liver appetizer and the fried deviled eggs. Casual atmosphere, great food- I would definitely go back and recommend to friends.

Food is good but the restaurant is far too noisy, 92 db is not the noise level where one enjoys dining. And we could not read the menu without a torch because it was so dark.

Cozy and intimate setting. I personally thought the Pig Out was just alright, so it was kind of disappointing that I couldn’t order another entree since the dish was already for two. Amazing sweet potato side, fried mantou dessert and deviled eggs appetizer. Overall a lovely experience.

I gave a 3 overall for a few reasons. First the chair my husband sat on was nearly broken, no one to talk to about it so we switched it ourselves, the tables were really cramped and I was bumped constantly by the waiter and other guests. But what was really disappointing was our intrusive waiter who interrupted us constantly by telling/asking us everything he was going to do. But what really got me was telling us the desserts while clearing our plates, we tell him we are going to take some time to finish our wine, not sure if we wanted more wine or not, only to have him return a few minutes later to ask about dessert, (which was excellent btw) when we were deep in conversation. We did have the dessert but once finished, not cleared, the bill was slapped down by not him but someone else. This didn't feel good. We did have a good evening and I will recommend you but I wish our waiter had been more intuitive with us.
