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.

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.

The food took forever to come, we sat there for 3 hours and when the final course came out we were all deeply disappointed.

How did this place even get a star???

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.

Food was good with interesting hints of Chinese flavors on American dishes. Nothing amazingly mind blowing, but still good all the same. Service was extremely slow however, even at 9 pm.

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.

The crispy deviled eggs were delish! But I was a little disappointed with the chicken dish. Not enough flavor for my palette and the meat was a bit rubbery for my taste. Everything else we ordered was good. So I would still give this place another chance.

my boyfriend an i went for restaurant week on wednesday. the portions were HUGE, maybe because restaurant week was ending in 2 days?? the chicken liver mousse was incredibly silky smooth and light, best i have ever had in my life. mild flavor, and creamy. the heirloom tomato salad was also fantastic, the fresh house made ricotta was really good. we also got the deviled eggs (off the regular menu, not the restaurant week prixe fixe menu) because i had heard such rave reviews, and they were not wrong! super yummy!

for entree we split the 'pig out'. note that by this time, we were actually very nearly full from the first 3 apps, and quickly losing steam lol. the cubes of pork were heavenly, and there was a delightful side salad of arugula/watermelon/candied walnuts that helped to cut the fattiness of the pork. but the peanut butter noodles were strange. they were very thick and chewy like extra heavy udon noodles and with too much peanut butter 'sauce' on them, they added nothing to this dish and were a weird addition. why? why not a nice simple rice bowl, or just noodles without peanut butter? WHY PEANUT BUTTER WHY ? :( we didn't like them and hardly ate any. maybe if you really love peanut butter (or are a dog) you would like them though....

desserts were A+, especially liked the tapioca pudding but be aware it is very rich!

we would def come back, there was a lot of stuff on the regular menu that sounded (and from our neighbors tables, looked) really really good also.

Service five stars, too!

I don't normally take the time to write reviews, but I had a great experience at this restaurant. Everything we ate was delicious. The chicken liver was possibly the best I've ever had. My crab pasta was delicious and creamy. The flavor combinations and menu options are unique. (I get tired of seeing the same things on every menu!) And they have a really great happy hour (wine, beer, sake and some other liquors, but no hard stuff) from 6-7. I sat at the bar with an old friend on a Monday night and had an excellent meal with pleasant service in a nice environment. I'd love to go back to try more menu items.

Loved this restaurant! Went here for Restaurant Week. Snow Crab pasta is one of their signature dishes. A little disappointed from Pig in a Baguette. It's literally a pork sandwich as a app but I should have known that since it says it's a baquette in the NAME. Overall very creative menu and I would come back again.

Very original food, creative and tasty: go for the pig, whether as a first dish (in a baguette) or the main dish (pig out). Service was good , efficient, friendly. Ambience very "East Village" like, not too noisy, which is good. The reasonably priced Cote du Rhone bottle at 35dollars was good.

Portions a little small for the price. I would recommend a starter and a main for each person, even for those with small appetites. The octopus appetizer with pork XO and brown butter was superb, as was the Beef with potato rosti. The Snow crab noodles with dashi butter were excellent.
