Cornelia Street Cafe

Am considering dinner at Cornelia Street Cafe on New Year's Day as we get into the city. Menu is very appealing. Anybody been recently?

  1. It's good comfort food--nothing outstanding or surprising, but solid and cozy atmosphere.

    1. re: Lucia

      Thanks, after New Year's Eve and Christmas I think "solid and cozy" is just what we'd want....

    2. The food there is really ordinary. There are many better places nearby (Po, for example).

      1. The home of bland, but good tap beer and comfy setting.

        1. It's not great. Average at best.

          1. while not a destination place, i don't find it as bad as the other posters might lead you to believe. I've read poetry there many times, and when i did order food i was never disappointed. perhaps never blown away either, but there is nothing wrong with the food at all
