This place had a great ambiance and was bustling for the lunchtime rush. They had the windows all open so it had the feeling of being outdoors on a nice day so that was a bonus. Service was good, not great. There was a short list of options on the menu, but most of them had a healthy vibe to them. I had the roasted pork sandwich - also good but not great. A worthy lunch spot but there are other options...
While the service and decor here are fantastic, the food is unfortunately a bit lacking. First, their menu is quite small (despite the huge paper its printed on), and doesn't offer enough in terms of vegetarian options. Second, aside from their appetizers, their entrees for the most part just doesn't live up to the price point. A dinner here will run you anywhere from $30-40, yet only offer a $20-30 satisfaction level. However, I would highly recommend coming here for their happy hour (it goes till 7pm) and getting their pita and hummus and the chickpeas. In terms of the entrees, stick to the lamb shank/seafood brodetto, and skip everything else.
This place is definitely a good spot in Soho. They're all about kale here, it's part of at least 6 different dishes. What's odd about this place is that the front and back of the restaurant have VERY different vibes. It almost seemed like a completely different restaurant. White linens on the tables in the back, looked more upscale. The front dining area where I sat was more casual, bar-like. What's really annoying, is that the bus boys come around too often to take your plate away before you're done eating. The porgy was excellent though.
