Jacques 1534 is a small local eatery with a an old time 1800's (?) antique bar. The ambience to me had an old European feel with cracked plaster walls, antique reproduction pictures and fixtures. There are booths and tables. Some local NY'ers were hanging out...More

We just decide to pop in because we were hungry and our first choice was too crowded. The steak and eggs was very good and I think fairly priced. Service was excellent.

Great atmosphere, but there is better cocktail places less than a block away and for cheaper. The outside tables and open front make it a great hangout and date spot though.

The moules marinieres was plentiful and tasty. The Cuban sandwich was also quite good but the merguez sandwich had much more egg than merguez sausage. The setting is typical French bistro and the service was efficient

Stopped at this cool looking cafe in SoHo for a drink and a snack. Loved the watermelon & feta salad. Good cocktails. Very good service. Worth a stop.

We had lunch on a freezing day in February. The place was bustling. The food and condiments are local and fresh. The service lovely. Next time in NY hopefully in the summer I will return.

The food at Jacques was barely edible. Waiters were rude and the owner Jacques, was offensive at best. Stay away...

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for
“North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to
be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighbourhood is
popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of
the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
