Difficult to book for no good reason - Edit

Good food. Most dishes are tasty and creative, although they could offer new things or specials, as it’s always the same. The place is pleasant and nicely appointed. The waitstaff is friendly and efficient. The crowd is more or less not too noisy. The greeting staff is icy and not terribly welcoming. Making a reservation is a nightmare. They tell you it is booked, when in fact it’s not. It depends on who you get to talk to.

fresh and vibrant - Edit

Recommend reservations - a hot & fresh spot. Amazing combinations of flavors and variety of dishes. Friendly and helpful staff.
A must when in NYC and can do some shopping at the adjacent ABC store.
Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has created a master-piece.

Pros: quality of food, creative dishes , staff and vibe.

Cons: none

Crisp Cali vibe, delicious vegan croissants - Edit

Ventured to abcV this morning because I heard they serve vegan croissants, something seriously lacking in this city. They definitely did not disappoint (though I wish they had take away on weekends). We sat at the bar and tried the vegan pastry basket, which include two bite-sized muffins and a small chocolate and regular croissant. Everything was delicious and service was very prompt and friendly. The restaurant is very bright and airy with a west coast vibe. It is a bit on the pricey side, but everything I tried was delicious.

a lunchtime adventure! - Edit

A friend recommended this place and wow was I impressed! First off, there are tons of drink options, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Then ordering the plates is a challenge because it all sounds so good. We ordered 2 plates each and found it to be a very good size meal. Everything we had was high on the taste experience scale. These are truly innovative creations. If you like to experiment you will not be disappointed. This is now my fave place for lunch in Manhattan.

Great atmosphere and service, excellent cocktails and dessert - Edit

We sat at the bar, which was good in that we could ask the server working there about the food. My husband had a lemon cocktail (can’t remember the name) that was great. We liked but did not love our main meal. We shared the avocado in lettuce, the barley soup, fried rice and vegetables - my taste does not run to bitter/fermented and my husband does not like chile peppers. So we have trouble with newer cuisine I guess. The dosa with cashew butter, avocado and greens was very good and the dessert- carmelized banana with pomegranate and chocolate was excellent. It seems that everything vegetarian can be made vegan. The staff was very busy but friendly and helpful.

special experience!! - Edit

Creative cocktails, fresh steamed tofu, roasted cauliflower, harissa, coconut yogurt and pistachio were special & delicious!
Savory spinach and kale oatmeal with roasted Cremona mushrooms changed everything I know about a bland protein!!! Outstanding!!

I can't wait to return!

Plant-based deliciousness in NYC! - Edit

Knowing the beauty and deliciousness that is Jean-Georges Vongerichten, I was thrilled to learn of his new vegetarian/vegan endeavor in NYC. He and Paulette Cole are co-creators if this lovely spot nestled right net door to abc Cocona. They treat all ingredients with the utmost respect, which shows in their preparation, flavor profiles and presentation. We had dishes that literally blew our minds (try the spinach and mushroom oatmeal for sure!) and we are already craving the dishes we did not have today for our fare next time. This is a must do for any foodie in NYC :)

Over hyped - Edit

Had dinner there with family and I thought it was over hyped and over priced, especially given that the execution was not perfect - I found some of the dishes to be too salty and the price a bit silly, even by NYC standards. One dish stood out for me though, the roasted beetroot. The rest of my meal wasn't memorable and I would not go back.

Pros: athmosphere, roasted beetroot dish

Cons: not so memorable food, price
