Dan Kluger’s restaurant is located in the East Village and is equally popular for lunch and dinner. During the day it’s very casual and then becomes chic in the evening. We were there for lunch and were immediately impressed by the warm ambience and friendly staff. Around us were locals, business men and a few restauranteurs.
We ordered a salad as an appetizer and spoke with two restauranteurs at the next table, who got inspired by Loring Place for their first restaurant in New York. The two New Yorkers ordered almost everything from the menu and were thrilled. From pizza to pasta, burgers, fish and healthy options such as fresh salads, the menu offers a diverse selection.
All of the plates has a creative touch. The main course for us was pasta with spinach and a chicken salad. A delicious lemon cake rounded out our lunch. The coffee tastes amazing as well as the Mimosas. In terms of price, Loring Place is slightly higher than other restaurants in the area.
