Almond, an American bistro located in New York City’s bustling Flatiron District, combines the best of farm-to-table cuisine in a casually elegant atmosphere. <br />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 to Heritage Farms Porkchop to Rack of Lamb.<br />Our wine list, handpicked by co-owner Eric Lemonides, offers an affordable selection of wines from regions across France and California. A specialty cocktail list, New York state craft beer selection, and raw bar selections are all available, along with our entire menu, at the restaurant’s spacious 20-seat bar. <br /><br />Private dining spaces are perfect for larger parties and a hidden European-style billiards room adds to the restaurant’s charm.

"Food, atmosphere and outdoor seating were all good. The service was terrible. We waited a long while for anyone to approach the table and getting our order taken didnt happen for about 25 min into sitting. We had to ask for milk for the coffees 4 times before eventually asking a table busser for it. It was not crowded, so its hard to understand the problem. Lastly, and maybe most importantly, the waitress was cold, mean and rude. She seemed like she didnt want to be there. She couldnt muster a smile, a hello, or really any basic waitress skills. She pretty much ruined the whole experience. The 4 of us will not be coming back."
