Tasty! – This place is delicious and the service was quick and friendly.
Horrible hostess, poor management – I went to Supper with my bridesmaids for my bachelorette dinner. We had made reservations days before arriving, however when we got there, the hostess told us "someone had messed up our reservation" and that our name was not on the reservation list. At that point, tired and hungry, we decided to take the next table. The table was next to the bar in a cramped corner right in front of the bathroom. I didn't want this to spoil our night so we decided to just have a good time regardless of the series of unprofessional, disorganized way they are running this place. No apologies were ever given for the mess up in reservations. They did give us a bottle of proseco complimentary and I thought this was a nice gesture, but I looked around the room to find that almost everyone there that night had proseco on their table, leaving me to believe we were not given any special compensation or treatment for their mistake. Now on to the food: mediocre at best. I had the bolognese, my friend the spaghetti with lemon and parmesan (horrible and unsatisfying)...only thing decent was the mozzarela/tomato appetizer however the portion was skimp and the mozzarela slices, although real and fresh, was small. I will never go back to this place. The hostess was apathetic at best, rude to be frank, and unprofessional. This goes to say a lot about the management who hired these people in the first place.
fav bar fav restaurant – Supper is the go to place for east village locals to grab a bite and a glass of wine. The food is good, the ambiance is chill and the people are cool.
Sugo bar next door is connected to supper and is also very chill--one of my favorite places in the city.
Watch out for their Twitter giveaways! – Before the Hollywood festivities of last night, I had the pleasure of visiting a gem of an East Village restaurant. Through, Twitter, I have been privy to (and the winner of) many a contest. I recently started following @suppernyc, the twitter account of Supper Restaurant on 2nd Street and Ave. A. It turns out, every weekday at 2 p.m., the restaurant, and their sister establishments @lilfrankies at noon and @frankrestaurant at 1 p.m. do a twitter food giveaway. The first follower to retweet the posted message wins the entree of the day.
Just my luck (which is good if you were curious), I won the Grilled Polenta entree. The catch is that you have to either have it delivered or pick it up that day during a specific time period. Since the delivery area is limited to the E. Village, I figured I would swing by on the way to the premiere.
Even with my two years in the city, I'm ashamed to say I haven't truly explored the East Village, but I am working on it! Walking east on 2nd Street, I saw the cutest boutiques and some wonderful happy hour deals. What I found when I walked into Supper though, was perhaps the most fantastic. Several rustic outdoor tables greet you at first and then you walk inside to what reminds me of a log cabin with a bit of an edge - almost an rural chic feel, if such a thing exists (if it doesn't, I just created it). After telling the hostess that I was there because of the Twitter contest, she presented me with a glass of house red while I waited for my entree. I took a seat at the large wooden bar, checked in on Foursquare (have to spread the online love!), and began to drool over the rest of the menu I looked over.
Supper offers a different risotto for every day of the week - could this be a more perfect place for me?! The most appealing, although I'm not sure if it is more of a dessert than an actual dinner, is Monday's Vanilla Bean and Mascarpone. I better clear my upcoming Monday schedules!
What seems like their signature dinner option is called the "Simple Supper." From Mondays through Wednesdays from 4-7 p.m. you can get an appetizer and an entree for $15.95. You can add on a glass of wine or beer to that for just another $4. Their weekend brunch menu also looked very appealing; the Molly's French Toast with fresh fruit raspberry butter, toasted pecans and real maple syrup was highly recommended.
In my haste to make it to the premiere, I know that I did not do my dish justice since I had to eat it on the subway. I didn't even get a chance to take a picture. However, I will take my sweet time describing it here. The polenta was among the lightest and most flavorful I've ever had, topped with fennel shavings and pieces of fresh Parmigiano cheese. It was accompanied by mouth watering Prosciutto di Parma and a small container of aged Balsalmic vinegar and olive oil. The crunchy-on-the-outside-but-soft-on-the-inside Italian bread that came with the meal was perfect for sopping up the extra oil and vinegar. With each bite, the subway car practically melted away and I felt like I was sitting outdoors at a table next to an Italian farmhouse, just watching the cows in the meadow and the sun setting over the hills. Needless to say, I didn't want the dish to end!
So what are you waiting for? Follow these restaurants on Twitter today and tomorrow you could have a wonderful supper waiting for you! Keep in mind you can only win these giveaways once every 30 days, but you can bet that I'll be first in line in a month.
Best restaurant in the city – Everything is delicious and you can't beat the prices. If they have the Burrata Mozz special when you are there don't miss it.
Such a nice dinner spot – Had a realllllyyy great girls night here.
We were looking for something new, as always.. And we stumbled on this little gem.
First of all, the space is amazing. SUCH good atmosphere.. really cozy, romantic, dim. It's a bit of a maze on the inside.. but in a good way. We were seated in the back area which consisted of a few sketchy staircases down.. but alas, the back space is just a cute as the front, if not better. We started with a bottle of champagne and began chatting away.
Then for the food.. we devoured the white bean olive oil dip that was brought to the table. Then, being the foodies that we are, we of course all got appetizers, entrees and desserts. All the dishes we got were perfect portions. Served in bowls that I felt like came right out of my grandma's cupboard, it was enough to make you feel REALLY full, but not disgustingly full. hahah.. The desserts were awesome, we got this chocolate thing and our server came to the table with a pot of hot chocolate and poured it on from really high.. really neat presentation. They sent us complimentary dessert wine, which made the experience even more special.
I would say the only minor "meh" of the night was that it was cash only. But I guess a lot of places in the city are these days.. wondering how all these restaurants get away with that.
Overall, really really memorable night.
Love this place, will def be back.
My New Favorite Place – I have been wanting to go to Supper for a long time but since it's not that easy to get to I have been putting it off. What a mistake - it is so worth a cab ride or walk to get to. We went a little before 8 and were told to wait in the bar next door - the bartender could not have been nicer - the wine was excellent and we had a little appetizer before going to the main restaurant. Supper is lively, so cozy with brick walls, tin ceilings and velvet curtains, and I would like to have the lemon spaghetti every day of my life. I will be bringing everyone I know here from now on - the service was excellent and the food even better. I can't imagine having anything bad to say about Supper - it's perfect!!!
Always busy – This place is always pretty croweded for dinner so you have to wait at the adjoining bar which is usually not a problem but I was injured and had no where to sit for the 30 min wait and was obviously injured and nobody gave me their seat. The people can be kind of snooty... THe food there is amazing. It is better to go there than get home deliviery. Also, one of the best places I have been in the city for brunch. The french toast is AMAZING.
Beautiful Room for 12!!! – I planned a dinner for 12 at Supper for a Saturday night at 7pm. At 7pm, 3 of our party had not yet arrived, but at 7:05, the hostess seated us anyway which I thought was really nice considering they are very explicit about their 10 minute table hold policy. But maybe they knew we respected their policy when we had our guests arrive at 6:45 for the 7:00 reservation.
Anyway, we were promptly guided from the bar next door to the basement dining room, back up the stairs to the main restaurant, to the rear dining room...2 friends and I were at the tail end and when we turned the corner in the reare dining room and didn't see the rest of our party we were really baffled. We were then told that our party was beyond the wine cellar.
I've been to Supper before, but never knew they had a back room and this huge, beautiful wine cellar. We walked through the wine cellar and through this door in a BEAUTIFUL private room. It was like a dining room set like none possible in an old tenement building. There was a beautiful long dark wood table for 12, 2 gorgeous chandeliers, damask wall-paper, a little bar, and our very own bathroom!!!
We were served right away. Our server was the most patient- we were a cackling group of 12 women excited about celebrating our friend's bachelorette party. The busboys were awesome, efficient and well-mannered. AND the FOOD was awesome.
Several bottles of wine, appetizers to share for the entire table, entrees for everyone and our bill plus gratuity (they didn't tack on gratuity!) was about $50 per person. This was a bargain!
We felt so lucky and special to have been dining in this beautiful room they put us in. It is truly the perfect place for a private, special dinner party!!!!
