Village Voice's Description

At Saro Bistro, chef Eran Elhalal celebrates the cuisine of lost empires (Austro-Hungarian and Ottoman) while championing the home cooking of his grandmother Sara. The cozy dining room in the heart of the Lower East Side would have impressed her for sure. While hints of life peek out from the kitchen (subtly spiced meat pie, escarole and herb salad, and lamb shoulder with braised cabbage), much of the food errs on the bland side. Indeed, you'll likely forget most of the meal by the time you turn the corner after leaving the restaurant. Yet for a fleeting moment, Balkan fare edges slightly farther away from obscurity.

Tips from foursquare

    Just when you think you know about all the brunch spots in the LES, in comes Saro Bistro. Great service and you better believe the crab cake eggs benedict is worth coming back for.

    My absolute favorite restaurant in NYC. Everything that comes out of this kitchen is outstanding.

  • Katie on 03/14/12

    The owner/chef cooks/preps the food most nights therefore it is perfection! Try the crab cake app. Yummy!

  • Jason U. on 02/15/12

    Don't start a competition with your date to eat the table peppers without knowing what you've just gotten yourself into.

  • Jason M. on 05/28/11

    Let Eran the chef/owner serve you up dishes from his grandmother's recipes. Balcan comfort food.
