Description: Almond, an American bistro located in New York City’s bustling Flatiron District, combines the best of rustic French cuisine in a casually elegant atmosphere. Co-owner and Executive Chef Jason Weiner offers a menu of accessible dishes that put market-fresh ingredients center stage. Classic Almond dishes include Steamed Black Mussels with Shallots and White Wine and Roast Chicken with Hand-Crushed Potatoes and Natural Jus, while a list of “plats du jour” range from Roasted Whole Fish and Herritage Farms Porkchop to Rack of Lamb. The thoughtful wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines by the glass or bottle from regions across France and California. A specialty cocktail list, New York state craft beer selection, and raw bar selections are all available at the restaurant’s spacious 20-seat bar. Private dining spaces are perfect for larger parties and the European-style billiards room adds to the restaurant’s charm.

The food was okay, but not great. The place was crowded and noisy and not conducive to conversation.

Had a wonderful time at Almond. Food was terrific and the mussels were to die for. Amazing sauce. Ate at the bar, met Eric the owner, and some new friends. Great time, not too loud but fun! Great wait staff.

My brother and niece were in town, so we headed to Almond for brunch, and had a lovely meal. The bloody Mary’s were great, the salmon Benedict did not disappoint, and the tuna on the salad Nicoise was perfect.

We all ordered off the Prix Fixe dinner menu which seemed to be a good value since we knew we would be interested in dessert. Food was outstanding. Enjoyed the Pea Soup, Swordfish, and sticky toffee date cake. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Lively and busy atmosphere, good service. Would certainly recommend and return.

Nothing fancy about this place but good food and great service.

Had beef short rib to start which was really great. Pasta and a Hanger steak for mains were also really good.

Service was exceptional. So friendly and even gave us a little Peanut butter vegan chocolate as a complementary dessert as we were too full. Would definitely recommend.
