Heard about their menu (tea-infused food and drinks) and finally decided to check it out. I'm not big on tea but after my visit here, I may be a tea drinker for life. I started off with their warm brie crisps and ended with the salmon. Both dishes were spectacular. But what really impressed me was their green tea margarita. Who would have thought to mix green tea with alcohol! the service was great and very friendly. I especially appreciate the manager's attentiveness (she's also very pretty!) I'm definitely becoming a regular.

terrible service (including from the manager), terrible wine, didn't try the food but with the way things went, i'm sure it would have been just as bad. It wasn't snobby service as most places in new york, i can totally get over that but it was just plan BAD service. And if your drink is terrible, don't worry you are still paying for it, even if it's completely full. I mean, HOW do these kind of places stay open? All the restaurants on the block were packed full of people and this was over half empty. I should have known it would be a bust. Didn't think you could ruin a "grabbing a quick drink" experience that bad.

My burger arrived sitting appealing on a plate with a side salad, although to my disappointment it was cut in half, thereby undoubtedly letting the beautiful juice run out on the plate. I took my first bite and was welcomed with a rich aromatic herb flavor, followed by a storm of creamy blue cheese and roasted tomato. The bun was lightly toasted and perfect, I thought the overall flavor of the patty was impressive, but lacked in succulence and juiciness. It wasn’t a large burger,reflecting kind of spa like persona about it. Not that this was a bad thing, but something to be aware of before visiting. For those of you that are famished, I would recommend coupling this one with a heaping helping of tea infused French Fries. Prices are Soho marked, and you should call for a reservation to avoid waits. The staff are friendly and cordial, and are the type that will do their best to make your experience special. To replicate your tea flavor experience in your home kitchen, be sure to grab a souvenir of some of their ingenious T Dust Tea Seasoning on your way out.

Best Restaurant in Soho

This is the best restaurant I've come across in Soho and I've lived in the neighborhood for 2+ years. Try the red moon salmon and some of the cocktails where they infuse tea into vodka and gin. It is very inventive and truly as good as you'll find anywhere. PS: the editorial review of this place is so old, none of the items they refer to have been on the menu since I started going and that was 2 years ago. NYMag, please keep your editorials fresh to keep us coming back!
