Loring Place by Chef Dan Kluger is located at 21 W. 8th Street in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village. The restaurant is the culmination of a lifelong dream for the chef who has cooked in some of New York’s most beloved restaurants, for the city’s top restaurateurs, and is best known for leading the teams at ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina as Executive Chef (named Best New Restaurant 2011 by the James Beard Foundation). At Loring Place, chef Kluger’s skill for creating delicious market-driven dishes, with unexpected but incredibly pleasing flavor combinations, is on full display. The menu, comprised of small and large shareable plates, spotlights farms and farmers whom Kluger has gotten to know intimately over 20+ years of frequenting the Union Square Greenmarket.

I'd eat here every day if I could. Everything's so fresh and delicious and perfectly executed. Have never ordered anything I didn't like. This weekend's brunch was particularly delicious.

Can I eat every meal at Loring Place??? I’ve been to the restaurant maybe 10 times in the last year and it never disappoints. The food is excellent and service above and beyond. The noise level at lunch is quiet - it’s quite noisy thought at dinner. Wonderful restaurant!! I highly recommend it

It was very busy for Brunch on a holiday Monday. The food was great. The service was a bit slow. It was hard to find and track down the waitress to place an order and get our check. The food was well worth the wait.

This was my third visit to Loring Place. Every dish from appetizer to dessert has been creative, fresh and delicious each and every time. The service is beyond compare. I highly recommend Loring Place for anything from a casual lunch to a special occasions dinner. (I particularly like bringing out-of-town friends there and am already planning my next visit!)

Veggies were very nice. So was dessert. Everything else was blah to substandard. My piece of char was banal, lower than high school quality. I’ll go to a ‘B’ rated Chinese place more gladly than return to Loring Place.

Amazing food, especially the butternut squash chocolate babka!!! Only downside was our ordering was a bit rushed because we were the last lunch seating at 2:30. If the kitchen is going to close then I recommend making the last seating at 2 instead.

Excellent food - some of the best hummus and Brussel sprouts dishes we have had in town anywhere. Thanks for having a gluten free pizza option, too - very tasty.

We absolutely loved our food and the whole experience was wonderful. My favorite was the kabocha squash and ricotta appetizer. I will definitely come back. The staff was very friendly, informative and not at all invasive. I told my cooking club friends to come check it out as well. I was there for a business lunch and the noise was fine for talking until it got really crowded. For a quieter lunch I'd advise going on the early side. A real gem! I love Dan Krueger's work and can't wait to go back.

Absolutely loved our dinner! It took me three years to get there & plan to go there every time I’m in NYC. The food was delicious! Loved all the vegetable options to go with the new fall menu. The table next to us had a pizza that looked amazing too! Next time, brunch!
