All Around Excellent! – Stumbled in early on a Saturday night and walked out with a smile. Great food, terrific atmosphere, and competant service. I came here on a date and was truly relaxed. We weren't rushed out the door at all! Pretty rare these days, especially for the now trendy and over-crowded restaurants in the LES. I highly recommend.
Bad karma all around. – I read the reviews of this place, and I can't believe anyone visited the same place I did. The crowd was a hideous mix of posturing tourists and bridge-and-tunnel matrons. The waitress actually seemed to be trying to make my date and me uncomfortable - maybe she didn't like the fact that we were two guys who were obviously a couple. The food? No idea. After waiting more than half an hour, we left. The waitress' response, when we asked about our meals: "It'll be ready when it's ready". If you're dumb enough or juvenile enough to enjoy this kind of experience, rush down to Rivington Street now. Otherwise, do like we did - cross the street to El Sombrero, which was already a neighborhood institution when I moved here in 1984, for good service and cheap, tasty food without the bad karma.
kicks a** – I love Paul's.
Seriously, the new management is fantastic. It's an easy layed back place, with enormous windows that allows for fantastic people viewing year round. the food is marvelous, the brie with honey is DIVINE... the wine list is superb... the comfy room with window seats allows you to relax with a fantastic coffee or cocktail and eat light fare with delicious accents. a true gem in the LES.
The only true cafe in New York City – This place is a little taste of home. For people interested in a mellow hang at a European style cafe, Paul's it it. Cheese Plates, Charcuterie, Foie Gras, Croque Madame, Mozzarella Salad, and the coffee and wine! Everything taste so good. It's my favorite eatery in Manhattan.
Perfect! – What a great find. After brunch at Essex, my boyfriend and I were meandering around the LES when we stumbled on this place. This is the ideal LES hangout for leisurely afternoon hanging out. Not rushed, great coffee and snacks, friendly service. Feels like Europe in a very authentic, casual way.
I love this place!... – This cool, little corner eaterie is an absolute delight! Enjoy all the advantages of a contemporary french cafe without the pretentiousness. The "snacks", sandwiches and pastries are fresh and are so delicious. The wait staff are surprisingly down to earth and very accomodating. Although the name of the venue is less than to be desired, this place is a definite a tresure for the lower east side.
As great as the name – We wandered in last night after a show in the neighborhood and could not have been more pleasantly surprised. The service was absolutely above and beyond, the menu was not huge but the food yummy, the ambience friendly, warm, but very light and easy. Check it out!
feather girl – Warm, cozy...... yummy snacks, the best latte in town & pretty people.
A true find, only for friendly people
good stuff – only open four days, the place was super-clean, and the owners were super-nice, on the house warm bread and olive oil and wine were definitely nice touches. i'll definitely be back soon. you should check it out.
