The Zagat Review
Chef-owner Amanda Cohen shows “serious skills” at this “vegetarian mecca” on the LES where “exciting, innovative” dishes are “beautifully presented” by a “knowledgeable” crew; the airy space has a “buzzy” vibe, and tabs include an administrative fee (no tipping).

This was the best part of our trip and we both agree, the best meal we've ever had. (We are currently vegan, have been vegetarian for about 12 years) Our main purpose of coming to New York this year was for the food and this meal made the entire trip worth it. My husband suggested making our next trip to New York based solely on getting a reservation booked here again and wanted to come back the very next day but we just could swing it with our schedule. The service is impeccable, the food is amazing and the space is really cute and cozy. The staff also went out of their way to work around our schedule to be sure we could make it to Miss Saigon in time and the chef brought us one of our courses. Our only regret is not having the time to do the 9 course menu. We likened our meal here to that of our dinner at Grace in Chicago but without the guessing game of what you may be eating. It's creative and experimental but still accessible and not at all pretentious. Give this place a Michelin star!

This is our go too special occasion dinner! Every course was amazing...and 9 courses we're worth it. The Korean broccoli never disappoints and every time we go the meal has a dish we would never order but ends up being amazing. Tonight the eggplant brulee stole our 💓.

The food here was very good, and fantastic atmosphere and service as well. We went for brunch, and the drinks were great as well -- have a "Jealous Mary" (a bloody mary made with green tomato juice, which was a fun, and tasty, twist). I'm definitely going back sometime soon for the evening dinner tasting menu, which sounds as good as the brunch! Fun location as well. All around, very good!
