In October 2014, partners Victoria Freeman, Marc Meyer and Chris Paraskevaides (Cookshop, Hundred Acres) introduce diners to Vic's on Great Jones Street in NoHo. Vic's resides in the re-imagined former space of Five Points, the restaurant that Freeman, Meyer and Paraskevaides opened together in 1999. After 15 years, the restaurateurs decided to renovate the space and the result--Vic's--is an entirely new establishment. Chef Hillary Sterling (A Voce, Lupa) presides over Vic's locally sourced Italian dishes, including house made pastas and pizzas (made with New York State flour) and market-driven plates of antipasti and entrées. Vic's is open 7-days a week.

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
7.4

Vic’s in Noho is a restaurant to keep in your back pocket for when you need something easy and good.

Ratings 7.0-7.5:These are your neighborhood standbys - the places that you’ll happily hit for some pasta or a quick salad, but not a restaurant you are bringing your parents or (god forbid) a date to. The true embodiment of good but not great.

Went to Vic's for brunch with a group of friends I hadn't seen in a while. Awesome cocktails and selection of different menu items. We all had and loved the poached eggs. Try the Rose Spritz!

2nd great experience at Vic’s. Usually at places it’s either good food or good service but this place hits all the marks

Vic's was fantastic. The food was excellent and the service was impeccable, but not stuffy at all. We started with appetizers and I could have kept ordering those all night. Each main dish was a unique and delicious blend of seasonal vegetables complementing the main course. And, don't get me started on the desserts -- we ordered three desserts and split them. What a mistake, I should have ordered all three for myself. I will go back every time I'm in NYC.

Hilary Sterling is not only a passionate chef, but truly a wonderful person. She cares about her ingredients, food and guests just as you would at a home dinner party. The food tastes great, it is served nicely and even through Vic's can be energetic at times, the setting and the chef keep their calm. The egg dishes, vegetables, and that brisket sandwich are delicious and plentiful. The pastas are great and the beer and cocktail program unique and balanced. We will return again & again. Oh, whether it is Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, etc. It is the regular brunch, lunch or dinner menu as the chef sees no need for contrivance, just great food.

Service is good and venue is very sleek and modern. The food is overrated. Menu is over priced for what you get. Baby squid appetizer was very good, but pasta entrees were more appetizer portions, over seasoned, and razor clams were chopped to death which ruined what makes razor clams so good as an ingredient, their texture and sweetness. Definitely a better brunch place as compared to this dinner.

Excellent and varied vegetarian with some great flavours. We tried the fixed price menu as it was during the week - some fantastic small bites. If I had the opportunity, would try at the weekend for a la carte option. Would definitely go again if in New York.

Chef Hillary Sterling is killin' it at Vic's. We had a table near the kitchen that gave us a commanding view of the action. What a well oiled machine she runs. Staff is super helpful and the vibe is upbeat without being crazed. Suggest ordering every veg option she is offering as each is seasonal and prepared with the respect it deserves. We had marinated baby radishes in a green sauce, roasted sunchokes in some crazy caper oil and the heirloom carrots prepared simply roasted with some seasoning. Pizzas are terrific as well for a second course starter. After that we split a roasted chicken that comes with a broccoli and potato mix with some other greens as well a pasta dish she calls "little purses". Her "chicken guy" is supplying super birds that are prepared beautifully. Moist meat with a crispy skin. What more could you ask for? Chef Hillary is adept at using simple, high quality ingredients in creative ways so that her food ends up being both creative and unpretentious. Insider tip: ask for a taste of their home made Amaro to finish the meal. Amazing stuff. WE WILL BE BACK!

I have dined at VICS several times and it seems to be getting better and better, but it started out fabulous already so I don't know what to say except that it's one of my favorite restaurants in the whole world: so much vibrancy and variety. The pasta is outrageously good, and I had an Italian grandmother who's food was unbeatable, so I know from homemade ravioli: the chef here is a winner. Also, chef is not afraid of delicious strong flavors and piquant spices, and uses lots of fresh delicious fish and poultry and just great ingredients. Nice wines, cocktails, service, the vibrant atmosphere, really friendly servers, etc. I think if you want a quiet intimate evening it may not be the place but the noise level wasn't bad the other night when I was there. It just has to do with the wonderful young crowd and all of the brick and wood and stone surfaces, which look fabulous.

We love going to Vic’s! There are always a variety of choices on the menu, from seasonal vegetables prepared imaginatively to pizzas, house-made pastas and excellent fish to one of our favorites, the chicken. Service is attentive with a choice of tap or sparkling water being refilled before one knows it’s needed! VIc’s is located a block and a half from the public theater, making it our restaurant of choice before a show.

Our waiter, Alex was knowledgeable about the menu and friendly. His recommendations were spot on. The only drawback was noise level which in this case was not a problem. But if you are expecting a quiet place for conversation, you might be disappointed.

Brought 6 friends here for a casual brunch. Everything from the decor to the food to the service was great. Seems to be a solid place to have larger parties, also saw a couple of babies. Portions were sizable, which is rare in NY. Clean design and wonderful daylight.
