Oznots is great! We have had many meals here over the years and now as always it is unique among NY City restaurants. Entering this place is a bit transporting; very oasis -like ~ i have never seen a space quite like this in NY or anywhere! Great tasting unique mediterranean food, peasant like earthiness served with flare! A most amazing (very textured, far-out, colorful) interior space, a cool ""glass house"" garden-like sun room out back, sidewalk tables outside. Sometimes hip and crowded othertimes quiet and romantic. Some complain about the staff and I might add that they are young (sometimes a bit ""lala""), but for the prices are about the usual. Unbelievable wine list. Great wine guy! My favorite dining in the burg for about as long as i can remember living here(7-10yrs?) Definitely not ""eclipsed""!!!
Pros: creative food, inexpensive, great bar/drinks/wine
Cons: no smoking, hostess, some service kids
