Elizabeth

★★★★★
Inspired by the gentlemen's clubs of London, Elizabeth adds a touch of New York punk attitude into the mix at this Nolita bar and restaurant. Whereas most people would take the PATH to get to Elizabeth, owners Sam Martinez and Jeff Mancini took a route that led straight through The Odeon, Lucky Strike, Nell's, Rialto, and Cafe Habana, leaving them on the doorstep of a new establishment intended to attract and sate the local appetite. In the pursuit of that coveted demographic�the faithful neighbors�Elizabeth has put together a stunning menu of alluring new American cuisine and set it against a backdrop of simple tones of black and white, a clever design that chooses to bring out the color of the patrons rather than making the walls emote falsely. An outdoor garden area features a thankfully-retractable roof and climate control.

Made an online reservation for 11:15. When we arrived we noticed that the menu stated that most everything on it couldn't be ordered until after noon. It was a little misleading to make a reservation and not be able to order right

After discovering this place at an engagement party on a Saturday night in December, I ended up loving the espresso martinis and lively bar scene so much that I ended up staying until 4am and have found myself ending up there on a regular

I just had my birthday party at Elizabeth last night and it was absolutely perfect! They gave us the entire back patio, which had it's own bar and coat check. The space was beautiful and comfortably held all of my guests (~80-100 people

I have to say, I am a total burger snob and this place passes my test, big time. Huge grass fed beauty with sesame seed bun, special sauce, lettuce, and a crispy cheddar wheel that looks like it landed from space sticking out from the bun.

I had my 30th b-day party in the garden the other night and it was awesome. They put together a special menu for our group and it was served "family style"--so everyone tries different dishes. Anyway, people were raving the next day. Would

I went with a group of 7 girls and it was perfect. The outdoor garden looks really nice. The indoors is trendy. There is a loungey area toward the back that seems like it would be perfect for drinks with a date. The food was good too.

We walked in on a Friday night with no expectation. We generally avoid "hip and trendy" places but the menu was concise and the decor interesting. The host was smiling, we were shown several tables before settling on one next to the door.

What amazed me about this place, aside from the food, was how nice hosts were. Normally when you are in one of the 'it' restaurants on a sat night, you're treated w/ indifference at best. Your wait is viewed as it is at the doctor's

Located just 1/2 block from my apt, I was eagerly awaiting the opening of the new Elizabeth (former Rialto). The new decor is dramatically different than that of its predecessor and a huge plus. The black and white mosaics and dim

There's no better place than Elizabeth's garden on a summer evenening, and with such a dangerously enticing list of cocktails I'll be back shortly. Atmosphere was fun, with a well dressed and up market crowd.

One of the worse meals I have had in NYC-- overpriced, tasteless, super small portions. Very disappointing. The space is nice though, so would recommend for drinks only. Skip the food!!!
