review for Canteen,142 Mercer St. (Prince St.),New York, Karim

This place really is very hip and happening.

The young attractive crowd occupy a restaurant and bar that looks like it’s out of some sort of 60’s America “House Of The Future!”. The bar buzzes.

It is below street level so you can judge the legs of the passing crowds on street level through the windows - but you’re better off looking at the people within. Always interesting and always attractive.

The food was good and the Caipirinhas awful. The desserts had the girls dribbling from the mouth as they were overtaken by the choco-holic instinct all women seem to have.

Good trendy place and food is fine too and not overly expensive.

Paul.. Sat in our round booth (on the left of the picture below), we were well looked after by our 'server' for the evening, and spent a good time nosing at all the strange people around us :-) Like Karim says, forget the caipirinha, and stick to wine (we had, of course, a red called 'Ferrari').

Food was pretty good, and the desserts were ace.

Like it! We didn't try to squash into the bar area - looked pretty packed. The WYD rating was definitely up there. Located in an area that allows you to fall out of the place into any number of others.

Final Word: Futurama style underground bar and restaurant. Good food and service made this an enjoyable experience.

Member Pic Just for anyone traveling to NYC....Canteen is not a spot that anyone goes to anymore...should be off the list.

Member Pic The atmosphere was very nice, extremely attentive servers; however, the food was uneven, at best.

We will not go back.
