Went for breakfast. Coffee had a burnt taste, plates to small for the amount of food, so the food ends on the table. Greens too salty and potatoes undercooked. Service was ok but unfriendly. Many places to eat around. Choose another.

This is a lovely restaurant downstairs in a townhouse with a nice open backyard. The dining room is long and a bit narrow, yet still cozy and intimate. The menu had a nice variety of options and the food well prepared and tasty. Reasonably priced.

Family friendly little nook that was very enjoyable for our "brunch" stop. The restaurant is formerly know as ICI but now known as Maison May. The service by Holly was over the top friendly and food was enjoyed by all. The shirred eggs were the favorite. We also enjoyed mimosa and various assorted craft beers. This nook is just a... More

Ici is a small, friendly spot with natural, eco-friendly foods, well-prepared and reasonably priced. The coffee is first class. They make their own delicious jam for the crunchy croissants, and serve sinfully thick bacon or home-made sausages with the omelettes or other egg dishes. The bill won't shock.

We had a great dinner in the lovely courtyard in the rear. Two other tables were occupied with Europeans at both tables. Although well after 10pm, we were not at all rushed to eat or leave. We all enjoyed our own respective entrees. The wine list features bio-dynamically produced vintages. If I lived or were to visit this area again... More

Enjoyed a Saturday brunch with the family in this small, French style restaurant. Food was really good, with some interesting dishes on the menu as well as brunch standards. Staff were friendly, and particularly accommodating with the children. Only gripe was that the music was way too loud for brunch when people might actually want to talk to each other!

Not only did I have my wedding here, I've eaten here at least 10 separate times before that and have never been disappointed! Yes, it's expensive but like that saying goes, you get what you pay for! With regard to my wedding it was spectacularly affordable for a small NYC wedding! Book off peak and you will not be disappointed!... More
