Description: In 1987, on its tenth anniversary, New York City proclaimed Cornelia Street Cafe "A CULINARY AS WELL AS A CULTURAL LANDMARK." Founded by three artists, it provides food for the soul as well as the body. Upstairs there are three dining rooms, a beautiful hundred-year-old oak bar, a sidewalk cafe on one of New York's most picturesque streets, and a wood-burning fireplace for the winter. The cafe has received numerous awards for its food: Time Out's TOP 100 RESTAURANTS; the Village Voice's BEST OF NEW YORK FOOD; and a special award from the Village Arts Society for INSPIRED CUISINE. Most recently it received the Waterford Crystal Award of Distinction for BEST BY-THE-GLASS WINE PROGRAM--there are more than thirty wines available by the glass. Downstairs (honored with Zagat Nightlife's Award of Distinction) there are more than 700 performances a year. RESERVATIONS ARE FOR DINING UPSTAIRS. RESERVATIONS FOR THE DOWNSTAIRS CABARET CANNOT BE MADE ONLINE.

we went here to listening to jazz music on as sunday night during our visit to New York. It's a super cozy place, great choice of food and drinks, great service and most importantly, the underground jazz venue is very intimate and classy, very close to the jazz experience you want in new york. The rates were pretty reasonable well! You pay $20 upfront which includes one drink.

We went there for lunch the other day while visiting the Village. It was busy and service was kind of slow in terms of getting the meal out, but the Kale Caeser salad w/ shrimp that I ordered more than made up for the wait time! It was so delicious and healthy to boot. Wish I lived nearby so I could order it all the time. Never have found a salad similar to that in any other restaurant.

We went there last June 24 to listen to the jazz concert of Gilad Hekselman trio. We had good music, excellent food (bouillabaisse Thai style) and some good wine. Worth to visit

Go for the food, go for the conversation. Friendly service at a charming place in West Village. If you’re in the area for any reason a morning brunch is worth it. Take time for a drink at the bar and some free local advise.
