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.

We ordered four dishes — two apps (special and duck) and two main (beef and crab noodles). We were overall only somewhat satisfied. Hey hhey snow crab noodles were delicious!! Given the pric set for the dishes, the flavors could be more improved and pack a punch.

The Hamachi was excellent. The octopus was tasty and tender but it came with a brown butter potato foam that was too buttery. The noodles with dashi butter had too much butter and only 2 bites of crab so not worth the price. Deviled eggs were fried in panko and were delicious. Broccoli with fermented shallots also had great flavors. We had to wait a very long time in between our apps and mains.

The food at Tuome is consistently excellent. It is as good or better than other high end restaurants that charge twice as much. Don't miss it!

The Pig Out for two was one of the most unique dishes I've ever had. The pork belly is cooked perfectly with a crispy skin and melt in your mouth tender on the inside. This dish itself is worth a visit.

A stunner. Unexpected, unpretentious and fun. We licked every plate. Not a dish we did not love. Special enough for a birthday dinner (which was why we were there) but casual, too, for an ordinary Tuesday. Cannot wait to go back.

It was the New Year’s Eve dinner. The 5 course meal was just incredible. Every plate was beautifully presented and the combination of flavors and textures was very well thought. Service was quick for the sequence and very attentive.

Booked for Christmas dinner, what a deception! The snow crab was more a "no crab" consisting only in spaghettis with some crab on top! The dessert was nearing indigestion ... One michelin star ?! No way !

Our table was right in front of the entrance door. Whoever entered the restaurant stood almost touching our table with all the coats, long hair and all this jazz. Food was not bad but not up the bar of the Michelin rating imho. Octopus salad was way too salty. Pork had overwhelmingly strong fatty aftertaste.

Food good but the service is extremely disappointing and definitely not at the level of a one starred Michelin restaurant. Let me give you some examples: waiters are taking away dishes from the table while one of the guests is still eating; I explicitly arranged a birthday candle for my wife and they forgot it. Then, when I told them about it, they didn't do ANYTHING to find a solution, neither a glass of champagne or a second bite of desert. That's really unfortunate; if you're looking for a nice Michelin Star restaurant to spend a romantic and special night, this is NOT the place. If you're looking for a casual restaurant with good food (the chicken liver was great as the duck and the pork) you can give it a try.

We had the Chicken Liver appetizer and Pig Out for Two. I've never tasted pork like this, such great flavor and cooked in a unique and amazing way. The noodles that come on the side were just as flavorful and tasty. We left very full and very happy. The restaurant is a little on the pricier side as a whole but if you order the right meal, it is definitely worth it.

Food is very good..had the cauliflower, pig out,chicken liver mousse and rice.
Rice was not worth what we paid nor was it anything special at all...
Pig out is amazing
Cauliflower behind amazing
Mousse was quite good
Service is average at best. Friendly but SUPER SLOW
finally very limited drink menu. Just wine and beer. Wine is expensive with small pours

We had an early reservation but by the time we left every table was taken--and rightly so. Know that although the octopus tastes good, the portion is very small--and pricey. The star is the Pig Out: there is main course like it in all of New York City and it is excellent. Wines by the glass are fine, as is the wait staff. Very dark so be sure you have a light of some kind. Mostly a winner.

Waitress was great. Food came out really really slow. When asked the manager why it was taking so long, he just responded condescendingly “it’s a small kitchen.” If u can’t be front of the house, stay behind the scenes. I think it’s a new staff because service isn’t usually so mediocre. But the waitress,again,was super sweet.

My visit was a nightmare. Even I had reservation, had to wait more than 20 min. When we were finally seated, waitress told us almost half of their main dishes were not available. It has been only a week since they got a michelin star but I highly doubt if they deserve it. Overall, food was okay but very unfreindly servers and not very professional manager or somm I dont even know who he was.

Fantastic meal and clever dishes crafted by the chef. Everything just melted in your mouth. I personally tried the chicken liver mousse, cauliflower app, duck sliders app, and the beef as my entree. All fantastic. My friends had the crab noodle entree and said it was one of the best dishes they had ever had. Truly recommend this spot.

Best meal in NYC that I’ve had in a long time. Very unique Asian inspired dishes. The octopus and crab pasta were among my favorites. Andrew was so welcoming, gave us amazing recommendations, and treated us like regulars. I’ve been to the top restaurants in the city and haven’t been this impressed. Good for any occasion - date, night out with friends or special occasion. I will be back!

This was one of the most creative and delicious dinners I’ve had for some time. My friend and I chose the prix fixe option which was very reasonably priced and ate the cauliflower, pig out (for 2) and beignets. I’ve been dreaming about this food ever since and cannot wait to come back. A new favorite!

Tuome is the only restaurant I’ll be eating at from now on. The chicken has been my go to but the fish is always outstanding and elegant. Also, I’ve stolen bites of the crab noodles from my fiancé, and it is excellent. So is he.
I recommend starting with the octopus and magical potato foam as well as the beets or the cauliflower. The egg is also and easy yes. Please get a side of the broccoli and/or the rice. The rice is seriously the best rice I’ve had in NYC. I often think about ordering a few orders of rice to go for breakfast or lunch the next day. Maybe next time.

Tuome is a nice combination of a low key neighborhood place with excellent food. Comfortable and cozy ambiance, quiet enough for conversation, excellent service, and imaginative food make this a good choice for a weekday night out.

Upon arrival waited in the middle of the restaurant as 4/5 servers passed by. The beef was solid but much smaller than I expected for the price.

Would recommend the broccoli but would not recommend the restaurant as an overall.
