This place is a NoLITA gem! Unpretentious and inviting, the atmosphere is warm and quaint. The food was fantastic!!! My date and I had to try each other’s dishes and they were one better than the other! The Lobster Bisque is fabulous...buttery and huge chunks of lobster. The Octopus Salad was equally good-the fennel totally makes this dish! I had the branzino and my date had this awesome veal with spatzel (spelling?) dish. All amazing. Great wine list and cocktails too! Go!!! More

Pros: Tapas were terrific - esp. the bacon wrapped dates, napoleon de verduras, croquettes and meatballs. Would go back to try the paella based on the quality of the other dishes! Location was convenient Cons: Host was pleasant and accommodating but otherwise service was nothing to write home about. Ambiance was very lively (wouldn't take my older parents here) but, as we weren't seated in the middle of the dining room we could carry a conversation! More

Absolutely top notch super-delicious spot. The wines are a real treat - rare finds that all have one thing in common: they are SUPERB. I have been here three times so far and can't wait to go back for another special occasion. The only downside is the ambiance: it's a little sterile. But given the heavenly food and wine experience, am willing to take it. More

Thai | NoLita, Manhattan

My boyfriend's parents, who are part-time Manhattan dwellers, highly recommended this place. We had an early reservation (5:30 PM) on a Saturday night, and while the place was quiet when we entered, it filled up quick. This is obviously a very well-regarded joint in NYC for several very good reasons. The drinks, although pricey, are large, exotic, and strong. The vibe is casual. The service is excellent (our water glasses were never empty--a good thing when ingesting some seriously spice). And the food is delicious. Standout dishes included the lamb laab salad (mouth-tingling in its level of peppery intensity), the curried beef short ribs (super-tender with a kick), and the bone marrow satay (I can see this turning into a periodic craving). If you like Thai food with a street twist, Uncle Boons is worth a try (but do make a reservation). More
