Stumbled onto this place after our United Nations tour. Fantastic find. Apparently it is best to have reservations for lunch but they found us a table for two in less than 5 min. The food was delicious! Interesting assortment of teas. Many options on the menu. The atmosphere feels like an upscale Asian restaurant. Friendly, helpful service. Only thing I... More

So glad we decided to check this place out on our last night in NYC. Firstly, great ambience. We loved that the place had seating in 3 levels, we were seated on the top level. Great deal of drink options, traditional and sweet Korean rice wines, cocktails, western wines and sake. A couple dozen teas to choose from too. My... More

I have eaten here several times and their food is consistently good. The variety of 'mock meat' are tremendous and their soy duck is an absolute must! Everything on their menu is good. Their tea selection, especially the ginger tea is worth having. Service is good and the ambiance is simple but nice. Worth going to and a good overall... More

What a wonderful find! Franchia is a delightful Korean/vegan restaurant. It is located on three floors of an older home, converted to a restaurant of course - but with a unique vibe. This is the kind of restaurant where you spend a lot of time trying to narrow down what you want to try. They offer lots of small plates... More

This is an upscale unique Korean Vegan restaurant on Park Ave near 33rd St. It is located in a three story town home type space that is very nicely done. You feel really good as soon as you enter the restaurant. If you are a vegan and you like Asian style food there is nothing not to like about this... More

Came here following a recommendation from a friend. He said it was his favourite. Interesting layout with multiple levels and pretty decor. We enjoyed a most memorable and delicious meal. I had lentil and tofu cakes and dumplings. Really worth a visit.

I'm not really too much in vegan food but why not - actually I did not really miss anything at this place. We went here for a very casual business dinner before meeting with a customer the next day. One of us was vegetarian that's why we ended up in this place. Actually I was here the second time after... More

Outstanding! We started with a couple of sushi rolls which were great but the corn pancakes were amazing. The entrees were terrific as well. We will certainly be back.

Food and service were spot on, I am not Vegan but after seeing the menu I booked as my daughter is, I was looking forward to going as the menu looked so good, it didn't disappoint and would have gone to eat there more but wanted to experience different places to eat.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
