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.

This is an inventive menu of food done well. All of the ingredients shine. Fabulous dishes for our group: the Peppernota to start, then most had different pastas (Hazelnut Borsas so good, as was the Rye (!) pasta). I enjoyed my Pork dish with fennel (tad fatty piece of pork but the mat was still delicious). Yummy desserts too. Our server helped choose our dishes (explaining some of the ingredients) and she made a great wine pairing suggestion too. Second time here and we again thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

what a great find. our party all ordered pasta at vic's and every dish exceeded expectations. desserts were not as exceptional, but still quite good. with regard to ambiance, this is a busy place on the weekends, with a very high volume, lively bar area. the dining experience nevertheless retained a warm feeling, and why? the excellent service. our server was outstanding, and that was the factor that put the whole experience over the top.

We ordered food. One of my is ordered a potato with egg option. Egg came out separately and main component didn’t. We requested it and it came out wrong and then they replaced egg twenty minutes later.
Other orders wrong too. Awful

My husband & I chose Vic's b/c it was close by to where we were shopping, it had a $ rating, + it was classified as Italian food. Our reservation was for 12:30pm. The dining room decor was very attractive & inviting. Each table was nicely set with a water and wine glass I immediately noticed there was a sunlit room at the back of the restaurant which allowed natural light to enter the main dining room. I also noticed there was a brick oven in that back room. I suspected it may have contributed to the lack of a/c in the dining room. The menu wasn't as extensive as I expected for an Italian restaurant. There was also a meager number of alcoholic beverages on the menu. I mentioned it to our server, & she presented a separate wine list. The number of wine selections was adequate, but most bottles were priced well above what I expected for a restaurant rated as $. We selected a bottle of Sicilian red wine that was priced at $48 (which was toward the low end of the range). It was certainly not the best wine I've had at this price point, but it was drinkable. We went directly to ordering our entrees since none of the appetizers were attractive to us (not even the roasted blowfish tails). I ordered the entree called "Calabrian Chili Crispy Chicken" which was described to me as boneless chicken coated in rice flour and cooked in a spicy chili oil.
Topping was a purple lettuce cousin to endive called "treviso", along with fennel and caraway. No starch came with this entree so I ordered Yukon gold potatoes as a side. My husband ordered the broiled Sea Scallops entree. It also came with no side, so he shared the potatoes with me. I have to say that the presentation of the chicken entree was excellent. Very colorful and interesting appearance (see photo). I love spicy food, and the Calabrian dish definitely delivered heat but I could barely taste anything else. Only 4 scallops on plate which looked lonely, so shared my food with my husband. Bill was $104 which was pricey :(

Second time at Vic’s and it did not disappoint!! Had dinner before a show at Subculture on a Monday night. Service is top notch. Very attentive and knowledgeable waiter. Food was excellent and came quickly. We had the sesame garlic bread and the crispy onions to start. We split small servings of cacio e pepe and the bursa pasta! We were so full we didn’t have room for dessert!

Despite a few minutes wait for a reserved table, the service was excellent. The waitress was attentive and knowledgeable, the bartender quick and personable. The food was absolutely delicious. I had the roast chicken, which was juicy and crisp on the outside and too big for 1 meal. My companion had the clams which she loved. Get the garlic bread with goat butter, and roasted carrots. Great value for the price. Highly suggest.
