All I can say is, GO. Andrew Carmellini has created another amazing menu and environment inspired by "local cafés, country inns, corner taverns, neighborhood bistros, seaside shacks, roadside joints, old school dining halls and the same mix of cultural influences that make New York City great."
This venture follows Carmellini's delicious success of Locanda Verde in Robert DeNiro's Greenwich Hotel. The Dutch is on a picture-perfect SoHo street corner, is always hopping and fun, and serves an amazing $5 oyster slider starter that all the foodie blogs buzz about. Just go. Now. And save room for pie.
