Kurio is amazing. Where else in NYC can you eat at a restaurant where the owner is the bartender and waitress and her parents are the chefs. The food is extrordinary, favorites include the lamb shank with gnocchi and polenta lasagna, and the drinks are to die for. China makes the best Cosmo on the planet. Kurio is truly a gem, a true family run establishment in a city of corporate dining.

Found this place walking down the street. Was discrete and hard to find if you're not looking for it, but well worth it. Don't come here if you are in a rush, but if you are looking for a nice place to relax and take your time with good food and a great atmosphere, then this is the place for you. I highly recommend the lollipop lamb with kiwi app, it was excellent. Pretty good wine list for a small place. Kudos for the chive butter.

My wife and I just discovered Kurio and to our surprise it was spectacular. The owner/waitress knew the menu inside and out and helped my wife select items that were safe for her allergy. I highly recommend the polenta lasagna, it was ridiculously good. You have to try this place!

Had a first date here which was really nice. The food, service, and atmosphere was all fine and it wasn't outrageously expensive. The place wasn't too crowded or hectic and the bar looked to be like a nice place to hang, although not so many know about it. I wanna go back soon. I wish they were open later, though.

The owners seem to know a lot of the customers, so the food is always great. I've been three times, each better than the last. Top-quality cuisine, without the NYC snootyness!

I planned a holiday dinner at Kurio and we ended up waiting two hours for the appetizers. The first bottle of red wine was served at a temperature of 75 degrees and after we complained, the second red was cooled in a bucket of ice water. We waited one hour before even receiving the menus.

Every neighborhood should have a place like this. Kurio is that rare combination of neighborly hospitality (family owned and operated) and excellent inventive spanish and american inspired dishes in an intimate, candlelit environrment. It's romantic without being too romantic. Menu is seasonal and ingredients always fresh. To warm up on a chilly winter night I l go to Kurio for the ambience, attentiveness the spicey chiorzo and white bean stew! Oh and while you may want to order take-out (I don't believe they deliver) I recommend going for a sit at the bar and chat with China the owner/bartender about the days events while she fixes you one of her tasty specialty drinks.
