New Years Eve Celebration at Irving Mill – www.IrvingMillTickets. com
Access Gotham presents a high energy New Year’s Eve revelry at its finest when Gramercy Park’s sexiest, most sophisticated venue.
Hey, let’s face it! We’re in Manhattan so old fashioned takes on a whole new meaning defining only its charming ambiance and sumptuous décor. This place has a whole lot of swagger and a few celebrity investors (We don’t like to name drop, but we'll give you a hint: Law & Order alumni).
Located steps off of Gramercy Park, in walking distance to Union Square, Irving Mill earned its notoriety as an innovative green market restaurant serving fine American fare with a touch of French and Italian influence. Boasting an extensive menu of wines, specialty cocktails and microbrews, it quickly earned a reputation as a nightly après-dinner hot spot for scenesters, celebs and hip Manhattanites. The Old World décor is as inviting as its friendly and attractive staff of consummate pros ready to show all of its guests a good time. The layout boasts three distinct areas including the Bar Front Tap Room with an impressive zinc bar, the Main Room with comfy banquettes and the intimate Wine Cellar – perfect to mix and mingle with old friends…and after a six hour premium open bar, surely make new ones by the wee hours of 2010!
What’s in a name? Well, in the case of Irving Mill, it pays homage to both the original tools for processing food and spirits as well as historic author Washington Irving. For New Year’s Eve 2010, make your own history! Irving Mill’s reputation of chilled cocktails with a smoking hot party vibe are not for the faint at heart so get ready to drink, dance and have a blast! Highlights to Irving Mill’s New Year’s Eve bash include:
•Six hour premium open bar (9pm-3am)
•Delectable hors d'oeuvres (9pm-11:30pm)
•Live performance by a world renowned DJ spinning sets of hip hop, dance, rock, 80's and Top 40
•Festive party favors
•Champagne toast at midnight
•Live DJ NYE 2010 countdown
Tasty not swanky – Went here for my hubby’s birthday. Food was great, the eggplant and ricotta brushetta was to die for! We asked for a sausage sampler which had rabbit, lamb and chicken which was delightful. The scene was nice but not stuffy and the pricing was in line with what it should be. I will certainly be back!
Salty food, spazzy service – Went to Irving Mill for brunch on a Sunday. The restaurant was not crowded but it still took forever to bring us bread, our food took a long time to come out and I had to ask 3 times for ketchup. The food itself is nothing special; everything was over salted and my eggs were cold. They dont serve home fries at brunch either, which I found odd. Most disappointing was what they call "goetta" on the menu. This is a type of breakfast meat served in the Cincinnati area, and I was very excited to try it at this restaurant because I have never seen it offered outside of the Midwest. I put it in quotations because whatever Irving Mill served was not goetta - the flavors were totally off, it looked like a squished meatball and, like all the other food we had, was completely over salted. The prices were too high for the quality and quantity of food as well. I would not recommend this place and will not be back.
Maybe the best burger in the city – The burger is the one item that needs to be ordered if you're going to Irving Mill, one of the most delicate, loosely formed patties I've had.. with a perfect balance of fat and meat. It was seriously delicious.
Pork Friendly! – I absolutely loved the entire menu here...from oysters to hamachi crudo with chorizo...pastas were icredible and light, lamb cassoulet was super. Nice to see a restaurant that is not afriad of putting pork all over the menu in many different forms (pigs' ear salad was awesome). Great dining experience, service a little slow.
Small portions, $$$$, horrible service – Considering the prices, and the small portions that goes along with it, you would expect each waiter to hover over the table hand and foot...that was so not the case. Our waiter was virtually MIA the entire meal we had to flag down various busboys to get his attention. We left starving. And broke.
Great food! Great service! – My boyfriend and I had a 9:15pm reservation to find it absolutely packed. We were offered many times to sit down in their bar but we decided to wait it out. At 9:30, as we started to get annoyed they offered to buy us around and gave us their sincere apologies. That won us back right away and we were then seated promptly. The service was wonderful and the food was even better. The portions we didn't think were too small but it is definitely on the pricier side. With that said however, we thought the quality of the food was worth it.
Union Square Greenmarket writes its seasonal credo with a barnlike space and a meaty menu. – In Short
In their tribute to seasonal Greenmarket cooking, the owners have created a gigantic, tendentiously rustic temple to the genre, carefully decorated with stressed woods and oversized wagon wheels, to say nothing of the vast and ancient millstone that dominates the bar area. But the real draw here is the cooking of wunderkind chef Ryan Skeen, whose meaty menu is simultaneously refined, edgy, and rustic--in a quintessentially New York way. Skeen's flap meat and fatback burger is justly celebrated, but it's the charcuterie platter that is Skeen's masterstroke: a hot and cold mosaic of meat, highlighted by a crisp, boneless pig's foot terrine that would be good in any season.
Very, very nice space but small portions – This place is a mix of great and disappointing. The space is awesome. Beautiful dining room appropraite for a work dinner or date. The atmosphere is perfect and even the front bar area is nice. The problem is the food is way too expensive for teh portions and taste. When an entree is $28 plus a side for $7.00 it needs to either be substantial in size or amazing in taste. It wasn't on the level that you expect from these prices and sizes. they should ahve priced in teh low $20s or made teh dishes come with sides or something. Also, the wine pours are tiny. Overall, the place and prices feel like a 4 star restaurant but the food = a 3 star. My date's duck was too salty as well. Go for a drink and cheese platter.
