Wow! Amazing food, fun ambiance, and all clean food!.
Well, unless you hate food with a lot of flavor, this better be your next celebratory dinner place. It's not cheap, but as they say, you get what you pay for. Chef Ric Orlando insists on Clean Food (google that if you don't know what it means) and you can tell. All the food is fresh, delicious, and full of flavor. You should probably like at least moderately spicy food as most of the food has some level of spice (they have some mild options but mild doesn't always mean spice free - my grandmother is sensitive and has a bad experience).
Overall, I love it. The ambiance is great and I go there as often as I can afford to go!
Intelligent, diverse, value-minded, and uplifting dining experience. New World basically offers the whole package (atmosphere, service, food quality) without price gouging customers. The restaurant offers fine dining food quality and service in a casual atmosphere. I would say just about anyone can find something they will love on the menu, although I am partial to the first page of specials. New World is NOT in the 'chain restaurant' category. Also recommend splitting appetizers as entrees are 'hearty' portions and you will definitely want to save room for desert!
diverse, healthy, inventive food will totally bl0w your mind. New World is one of the most unique restaurants I have ever been to, period. The atmosphere of the place is completely reflective of the Saugerties-Woodstock area, down to the hipster waitstaff. The service is great -- the waiters are incredibly attentive -- they have to be, because it'll take forever on first visit to decide what to get. There are so many options, even for vegetarians -- and everything that comes out of the kitchen is not only beautifully crafted, but incredible-tasting. People who enjoy spicy food will especially enjoy Ric Orlando (head chef & owner's) talent for combining ingredients. There is truly no other place like New World; everything inside the front doors has a specially unique and inventive touch. If you ever want something completely different than everything you've had before, you've got to check this place out.
Hot Dang - You can't go wrong at New World.. This is definitely a favorite place for me and the husband-to-be to go every time we head up to the Woodstock area. Great overall environment and an unbelievable selection of food! If you aren't the experimental type the menu could be intimidating - But don't be scared! I've experimented and tried things I've never dreamed of eating and I was so unbelievably surprised how good everything was. From Meanhouse BBQ Ribs to New World Jrk Chicken and green beans to die for, you can honestly taste how fresh all of the ingredients are. Great place to start broadening your global palate :)
Inventive, healthful entrees and a funky atmosphere highlight this bold restaurant..
This freewheeling eatery is not far from Woodstock in geography or spirit; the friendly service and great food make it one of the happiest dining spots around. New World is a popular stop for weekend travelers and Hudson Valley locals. Chef-owner Ric Orlando uses fresh local ingredients and seasons them with flair. Jerk chicken is a signature dish, but Orlando's specialties also include vegetarian and vegan dishes.
New World best of both worlds. Best restaurant I've eaten in on both sides of the Atlantic (I'm a native of Great Britain). Don't miss the fried calamari, especially tossed over the "Sexy Caeser Salad." Bistro Steak with Chimmichurri sauce is top notch too, but take a chance with anything on the menu - it's all ALWAYS first rate.
I've eaten here on several occasions and my expericences very greatly. I've had both good & bad meals and I've had both good & bad service. I believe that receiving good service here is largely a function of a particular server being very good at serving and not a result of any overall training of the waitstaff.
I've ordered food that was listed as a 9 on their "ric"ter scale of spiciness that was not even a 2 as far as I could tell. I've had probably the worst scallops & mussels that I've ever had there.
However, I have had a really good Vietnamese calamari dish and a great Thai BBQ Salmon here as well. Their burgers are really good (even though they don't serve them with fries).
All Time. Hands down, my favorite restaurant ever. Enjoy New World's delicious, inspired food with total confidence that you're neither hurting your body nor harming the planet. I LOVE the food here and, for a really cool adult spot, they sure know how to make you feel welcome and comfortable when you're out with the kids. Thanks, New World!
new food bad cooking. rather pretentious in a funky new wave way. More a club than a good resataurant. Food can be good but is usually mediocre-bad, over-priced drinks. Good free music and dancing on Fridays.
Tired of precious little perfect cafes with no soul and less sense of humor. New World is the best. The quality of the food is superior and the flavors are immense. The is no self consciousness here. It is a great night out!
