How often do you go out for Italian and have Mel Brooks "Young Frankenstein" playing on the wall! No sound, but an amusing distraction. Went on a Thursday night. Young vibe, but not at all uncomfortable for my 60ish husband and I. Server was friendly,...More

My 15 year old daughter proclaimed the spaghetti with Buffalo mozzarella the best pasta dish she ever had. So I guess the trip we took her on to Italy was a waste. I had a lentil, black rice, beet and smoked trout dish that I...More

Second trip to AlMar for brunch and it doesn't disappoint. Their baked egg dish (Egg Toast) is outstanding!!! The sandwiches (paninos) are excellent. The service was great. Just bring cash. No cards! Very casual place in Dumbo.

The best thing about Almar is its location. Right in the heart of Dumbo. Pleasant if moderately clueless wait staff. But the food was middle of the road. Corked, warm wine that has been sitting on the shelf for hours, days or maybe weeks. A...More

Best cappuccino and espresso in NYC. Stop by here occasionally before or after a meeting at a nearby project. Cash only sucks. They also serve lunch and dinner but never had it.
