In increasingly mall-ified Soho, virtuoso Andrew Carmellini’s deeply personal homage to the American melting pot at this worldly brasserie—from the team behind Tribeca sensation Locanda Verde—feels electric.

The exuberant menu veers from New England—gorgeous picked crab in horseradish-infused tomato water—to New Orleans, via tender pink slices of pecan-glazed duck breast with chicken-liver-enriched dirty rice. There's Mexican-inspired lamb neck in a genuine 30-ingredient red mole and "barrio" tripe: supple and spicy with avocado, diced radish and Fritos on top (now off the menu). And there's fried chicken (available only on the lunch, brunch and late-night menus), the peppery, golden half-bird served with a rotating spread of sides—smoky collards, flaky biscuits and mashed potatoes soaked in thick gravy when we visited.

The Dutch is the kind of place where you can confidently pair cool matchstick asparagus tossed in Thai basil, peanuts and fish sauce with an all-American rabbit potpie steaming under a showstopping dome of crackerlike crust. That all of it tastes good—and, somehow, works well together—explains why even 10pm reservations remain so hard to come by (walk-ins are encouraged).

Designing the restaurant's playlists himself and riffing on dishes from his own road-food adventures, Carmellini is clearly having a blast here—and by the looks of it, so are his patrons.

Stumbled upon this place and couldn't believe we had never been before. The eggplant dip was really interesting and we were thoroughly impressed by everything that came out at the tables around us. They even gave us little muffins to take home and they were amazing.

I've only had the oysters and they were wonderful fanny bays from BC, Canada. Great room and street view for people watching .

This is a fun, go to restaurant in Soho. I've been here for dinner and most recently came for lunch. The place was pretty crowded at noon, so I recommend making a reservation if you can. You can also grab a drink at the bar. For lunch I had the lobster roll which was pretty good, and also enjoyed the waygu stake tartare appetizer and the little oyster sandwich. My friends also really loved the grass-fed double cheddar burger.

Came here for Sunday brunch and was pleasantly surprised. Everything sounded so delicious on the menu, I wasn't sure if it would taste as good as it sounded, but everything my friends and I ordered certainly did. We got french toast, poached eggs, steak and eggs. They do a lot here! Great food, in a great location in the East Village. Check it out for your next brunch!


You can always count on a good meal here, and the location is also ideal for a group meetup. I brought some out of town friends there, and they all loved it. Wine selection is also great, as is the atmosphere, (very open, airy spot for NYC). I enjoyed their offshoot in Maimi/South Beach as well., it was equally delicious.

A fun place to go with friends, family, or a significant other. Delicious and wide arrange of food. The only downfall was how expensive it was for brunch - the burger is almost $25 and simple breakfast dishes could be up to $20. I've had better brunches at less expensive places. Nonetheless, it's a great restaurant nestled into SoHo on the corner of Prince & Sullivan.

Great choice for a boozy-get-together with colleagues and friends. Oysters and cocktails to start, for my money. Then plow on into the rich meaty mains and the strong wine list.  Great buzz and atmosphere here, although typically a wait for a table. Definitely one for an unhurried night.
