I had booked a table at here well in advance as my NY trip was booked and planned for a purpose. The restaurant itself it in a nice location and from the outside looks tiny, but once you get inside, its big and very spacious. In the time between me booking and dining, the restaurant gained its first Michelin star,... More

Public So we were recommended "Public" as a "must visit" restaurant in NYC. Adjacent bar "The Daily" next door was welcoming. Kinda dark n cool. After pulling a few soda ring pulls, pouring 3 wines and a $7 bottle of beer the Barman expected a 15% tip on top of the $68 bill. Failing to add a tip, I no... More

We went there for brunch on a weekend and had a very peaceful brunch, a hard luxury to find in NYC on a summer weekend. The turkish poached eggs were yummy, the space was amazing and the service very good. Our only comment was that the bread was a little hard to enjoy with all the nice sauce that accompanied... More

theres brunch served here, till 230 pm, which maybe runs contrary to the definition of brunch. The plates were decently sized, however having had "authentic" versions of the dishes served, i could safely say this is a good approximation but not nearly perfect. Service was rather slow, and a michelin starred restaurant should know better about the temperature eggs should... More

Totally recommendable restaurant in Nolita. The food is really innovative, mixing different flavours with a kind of art in the presentation. Totally out of the typical american food. The price is correct, taking into account what is NY and the food quality (2 people around 100$ without wine). Don't expect big plates, this is not this kind of restaurant.

I'll keep this short and sweet; Poor service, they even stuggled to make it easy to take an order for 5 people all having the taster menu. Not to mention the bill was wrong. Average food with no style or class about it in my opinion. It was a multi course taster menu and the food seemed to just come... More

Had pate and bread for starters, husband had scallops for entree and lamb shank for main. I had pasta and a very delicious pear and apple pie. Overall a lovely experience. Yes agree with other review that... More

Woow what a restaurant! Very nice place to eat. Very nice selection of starters and main dishes all with an unique taste. Highly recommended, unfortunately the restroom can have some improvements!

Public is billed as an Australian restaurant but I can't say the menu really looked distinctive except for a kangaroo appetizer. The place is poorly lit and a bit noisy but roomier than a lot of places in New York. They didn't offer at tasting menu and I didn't see any main courses that looked interesting so I ordered two...

Public is now one of my favorite spots for brunch in New York City. Not only is the neighborhood very nice but the venue, staff and food is amazing! Perfect for a date or gathering of friends and family. (Just wished they had a bottomless brunch option!) I've only had the pleasure of tasting their brunch menu and among my... More

Staying in Nolita

Neighbourhood Profile
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighbourhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
