4.5 (917) $$$$ $$$$ Bar, Small Plates, Mediterranean, Californian, Wine


Summary: Small plates & organic wines, cozy vibe.

A.O.C. is a gem in the heart of the city, offering a warm, rustic atmosphere that's perfect for sipping on fine wines and indulging in Californian-French small plates. The venue's commitment to sustainability is evident in their extensive wine list, which features a selection of sustainable, biodynamic, and organic options, each thoughtfully labeled. The food menu is equally impressive, staying true to the concept of small plates that A.O.C. has been known for over a decade. From bacon-wrapped dates to arroz negro, the dishes are a testament to the kitchen's focus on quality ingredients and robust flavors. Vegetarians and meat-lovers alike will find something to savor, with dishes like curry-seasoned cauliflower and the "Ode to Zuni" roasted chicken. Cozy up in the intimate upstairs area or enjoy the ambient brick patio, complete with olive trees, as you treat yourself to craft cocktails that perfectly complement the consistently satisfying fare. Whether you're finishing with an almond layer cake or a strawberry-topped cream cheese tart, A.O.C. ensures a memorable dining experience.
