Best food, great drinks and fantastic atmosphere. I loved the avocado toast. Had a small bite of my partners omelette, also delicious. Staff was somewhat preoccupied with looking in the mirror how beautiful they are. Which they are. Good music!

Three of us went to this place in Union Square. The food is at best average and the service was ok. I've had better chips and guacamole elsewhere. The huevos rancheros weren't anything special; nothing that made them appealing. The best part is the sidewalk...More

Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set

District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd
Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building,
