We visited this place last night, and we were not disappointed. We had the burrito and the waffle burger - they were both Amazing! Staff are super friendly and helpful. Portions are huge, I struggled to finish It! Highly recommend.

Found on our last day in NYC and really regret not finding it sooner - one of the best meals we ate during our stay (and one of the reasons we go to NYC is to eat!). Go try it - vegetarian or not.

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
