Had a wonderful brunch and I would definitely recommend. Caught a window for a walk-in without a reservation. By the time we left, the place was packed. The ambiance was inviting and comfortable and service was very good. Beginning with bottomless mimosas isn't a bad way to start. My husband had a chicken sandwich with fries, which was good. I...

One of my new favorite restaurants. The food is a perfect blend of mediterranean flavors with just enough innovative pairings to make it something different, special. All, in a fun, friendly, and creative atmosphere. We had a table by the open window which is great. Will definitely be going back.

My wife and I were in the Chelsea area and this restaurant had been suggested as a place we might enjoy. We sure did. The hummus was first rate. So was the falafel sandwich and the tasty salad. The ambience was tasteful and inviting. Add it to your list if you are a foodie or food enthusiast.

Nice spot for some good mediterranean food in the city located on park Ave south. I have stopped by for drinks quite a few times now with friends. They have a good menu with specials of the day.You can also choose to have couple of appetizers as your main course and will not be disappointed. Friendly staff and quick service... More

First class, impeccable service from the staff, positively delectable Mediterranean food, and a beautifully appointed restaurant was our experience. I would definitely go back again and again. It really was a very special experience. It is loud but that adds to the festive vibe of the place. You won't be disappointed. Only thing that didn't impress me were the cocktails... More

Barbounia is subtitled with 'a meditteranean affair' It did feel kind of like that.... late nite, chance meeting, first intrigued by the menu posted outside, seduced by the beauty of the interior, swooned by the food! Whilst walking from uptown to downtown, hunger struck just at right moment. As soon as we walked in, it was love at first site.... More

When a friend recommended we meet at this Union Square location for Sunday brunch, we were a little unsure about what we might find, having only been here for a late drink and nosh in the evening, which we found nice but very noisy and trendy-electric. Brunch, however, was a wholly different and much better experience. Two of us ordered... More

Celebrated a colleagues birthday. We were sat down right away. The bread and shrimp app were really good. The steak sandwich was not good - everyone that ordered it was not impressed. The AC was not working well and it was super hot. Kept searching for the waiter to get more water, place our order and settle the bill.

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
