Time Out says

Vicki Freeman and chef-husband–co-owner Marc Meyer want Cookshop to be a platform for sustainable ingredients from independent farmers—

a place where the dishes are made from vegetables grown with minimal fertilizer and animals that were raised humanely and without growth hormones or antibiotics. True to its mission, Cookshop’s ingredients are consistently top-notch—and the menu changes frequently.

LOVE a place where you can make a reservation. It's the perfect NY Sunday brunch atmosphere (lots of natural light and attractive people) and the Bloody Marys, particularly the pickle-heavy version, are spot-on. 


Take this review with a small grain of salt, because I have only ever been to Cookshop (typically regarded as a brunch spot) for dinner. But oh, do not sleep on  their rendition of the 3rd meal of the day either. 

Cookshop is yet to disappoint me in any aspect of my experience there. Beyond the menu (which I'll get to), the staff is super respectful and accommodating. On more than one occasion, I've had to wait (never more than 15/20 minutes or so) for a table when I had a reservation, and each time they've compensated my party for this (apparently abhorrent) crime with a free bottle of wine/round of cocktails. So what I'm saying is, if you go to Cookshop and have to pay for your drinks, you're missing out.

But when it comes to the menu, Cookshop uses fresh and local ingredients in every dish, and can easily satisfy any palette. The fare is standard American, and entree options will usually include one of every type of meat, poultry, and fish. But the real standout here is the sides/veggie entrees. I'm a carnivore to my core, but the quality and execution of their vegetables is undeniable. I don't care if you come in a group of 2 or 12... order a bunch. And make sure that bunch include Brussels sprouts and cauliflower. And make sure you ask the server for the cauliflower recipe, because I have failed to do this every time and am still kicking myself for it.

Then report back. Thanks. 

The Huevos Rancheros is seriously to die for! I came here for brunch and ended up waiting an hour and a half for a table (tip: reserve ahead of time!) but the food and the service made it worth it. The atmosphere is perfect for a weekend brunch with friends and the food came out right away. Will definitely be back, next time with a reservation!

Good food. We particularly like how the menu changes often. Good service. Highly recommend if in the area.
