One of those hidden gems on a neighborhood side street. They started out as a small bar with some tapas and now they expanded to the store next door where they offer only drinks. Their food is great, sophisticated and tasty with reasonable prices. Service...More

Came Saturday night with my boyfriend and we had a really nice time! My truffle mac and cheese was amazing! The bacon cheese burger is nothing special so I’d skip ordering this. The mozzarella and tomato with capers was a delicious starter. This restaurant is...More

We had dinner at tiny Heidi's House recently and I really enjoyed the fancied up mac and cheese. My companion had an excellent seafood salad. Food on offer comes from some of the iconic retailers in the neighborhood. There is a short but very select...More

This place is special. Kind of an unusual menu...comfort foods gone gourmet. Exquisitely prepared. Teeny restaurant, so it's fun. Good service. Quite loud though, we almost left for that reason, but succumbed to the server/bartender and menu and so glad we did. Got a seafood...More

This is one of our New York City favorites. We were lucky to get in at the last minute on Sunday night. The bruschetta was divine, crusty, cheesy deliciousness. The gnocchi was great comfort on a blustery night.

Dear Madam, My husband was trying to control a situation in which the woman was reacting in a strange and abusive manner. She was screaming at our bartender, threatening his life, and generally behaving irrationally. I can understand how this must have been very upsetting...More
