The standards with a twist 12/7/2005

At first glance the menu can look mundane but Eatery puts a twist on everything they do. My boyfriend and I had a nice weekend evening meal here the other day and plan to come back when we need a good hearty meal and don't feel like leaving our neighborhood. The atmosphere was nice, a little too dark for a family place and a little too loud for a romance. I thought the prices were pretty reasonable for the area and the quality. You can go next door to the two Italian restaurants or across the street to Georgio's and maybe pay a little less if you order right, but you'll miss the creativity that Eatery offers. Instead of bread to start the meal, you get a fluffy chip that I would guess is made of rice or potato flour. Kind of like Robert's Gourmet Potato Flyers...they're not the most flavorful things but they're interesting. I had the tequila shrimp, which was a little more fried than I expected but still full of flavors. The most popular dish around us by far was the meatloaf, which comes with a chiptole sauce. If you're in the mood for the classics but enjoy unique and creative flavor combinations, this place is for you. more

Good for brunch 9/3/2005

Went here for Sunday brunch and it was delightful. It's casual and the staff is nice and helpful. Had the blueberry pecan waffle which was great. Tasted my friend's omelet and it was good. It's a little bit farther out west so not as crowded as places that are closer to central Manhattan. more

Good for brunch 8/30/2005

This place is VERY popular in my neighborhood. I can't say that I am a die hard fan of it though--I like Eatery for brunch and drinks. The place always has a good crowd but I don't like their dinner choices as much. There is a lot of "comfort" food such as macaroni and cheese so if that appeals to you then definitely give it a try. Also, in the summer there is outdoor seating so that is a huge bonus for people watching. more

Solid 8/15/2005

I love the look of this place and when it's nice outside, it's great to sit outside and take in all the 9th avenue life! The chicken (asian) salad is perfect and the burger and sweet potato fries are awesome. Their delivery range is pretty good and the service is great. more

    "Good times abound" at this "friendly" Hell's Kitchen, New American restaurant, a "cool white" destination for locals digging into a "crowd-pleasing" menu of "affordable" "modern diner" items like its "famous mac 'n' jack" - Zagat.

    Join us for pre-theater dining, dinner out with friends or a nice weekend brunch. We look forward to serving you soon at Eatery.


  • In Short
    Eatery's design is spare: High white ceilings, a cement floor and green banquettes. A small, well-populated bar sits off to the side. The New American menu is well-suited for...
