What was once It Happened In New York has been given a slight facelift and now newly christened The Benedict. While space is the same, two stories of loveliness, the menu has gone through a round of tweaks. It features mostly comfort food like burgers, tacos, pasta pies and casseroles but also has a menu with healthier or some might say hipster alternatives like 'Avocado Toast' and 'Quinoa Bowls'.
An extremely unique restaurant that I've visited in a long, long while. First up, the decor was amazing, loved loved loved loved loved the ambiance of the place. Next, the menu has been designed in a really amazing way and full marks for the choice of dishes up here! Service is remarkable - better than a large number of places that I have been to. Special compliments to Mr. Sagar for his service. Tried the following dishes: 1) Rainbow Bagels: This is given to start off the meal, soft fresh bagels with some cream cheese. Really Delicious. 2) Grilled Salmon: This beautifully light fish was served with cauliflower couscous and coated in thick lemon butter sauce. The sauce was delicious, the fish was cooked just right and this dish was what dreams are made of! 3) New England Lobster Roll: The amount of meat in this roll was just ridiculously amazing. The roll was creamy, cheesy and the bread had such an amazing taste that I could eat it simply like that! 4) Old Bay Crab Cake: Loved these little cutlets served on a crispy biscuit. This dish was a perfect balance of flavours - right from the sweetness of the jam to the spice of the arugula leaves to the creaminess of the crab meat. Loved it. A must order 5) Korean Fried Chicken: The waffles were cooked beautifully well, the chicken was lovely and the sauce was definitely an icing on the top. 6) New York Cheesecake: One of the best cheesecakes that I have had in a long while. Creamy, extremely heavy but fulfilling and a MUST HAVE! Loved this place, loved the ensemble of the menu. loved the service - this place is a must visit.
There were five of us who went here. The food is strictly okay. Not too much to talk of. Service is good. Its a one off
Good ambience although small. Options for breakfast was quite good. That have a bakery section too. Great food, priced on the higher side. Recommend for experience sake.
I visited the restaurant to try my luck although i was warned by few of my friends before. First of all i would say the place is not at all hygenic. I really dont know if the management takes proper training of the staff. They have big nails in their fingers and the service tray in which they carry food is never clean. I am sorry to say that few of them have a body odour as well. if this is the condition of people who are working front of the house i can imagine the picture whats there behind in the kitchen. I feel the management should take up the responsibility to educate and train them. The food is somehow okay although i had lost the appetite by the time it came with the first impression of the place. The waiters simply disappear after dumping the food on the table and are only back to you once its time to pay off the bill.

The ground floor is brightly lit and more suited to brunch or a day-time snack or high tea. Upstairs is better for dinner. Life’s Good, but its not perfect Starters We were welcomed with mini rainbow bagels and cream cheese. It was a cute amuse bouche and a good way to set the mood for a New York inspired dinner. To start we ordered the Pork Belly with chimmichurri. This was an absolute delight. The spices were mild, not to overpower the pork. Then we had the Peri-peri spiced Prawn . The prawns were cooked well, with the potent hit of peri peri toned down for a global palate. The balance of flavors was perfect. The menu said it comes served with crushed peanuts. We didn’t find any. Chicken wings were next on a fairly long list. The sauce was homage to the indelible impression Chinese food has on New York. Tangy and hot would be the perfect description. The Nachos with Chicken were average and nothing much to write home about. The Popcorn chicken were bite sized chicken tenders coated in panko crumbs served with a kimchi mayo. It was a good bar snack, perfect with a glass of beer. No stars and spangles on this one. Mains: The mains are described as large plates; they are smaller than the industry average and are just enough for one. We tried the slow cooked pork belly is supposed to be served with a sweet potato mash. What we got was sweetened regular potatoes. Served with a berry jus, this felt like dessert served a course early. The pork was cooked well, though. The Jerk chicken was a leg and thigh served with mashed potato and assorted veggies. The chicken was flavored just right and cooked well. The jerk flavours didn’t come on too strongly and with the sides, this made for a decent sized main. The Tenderloin steak was marinated in garlic and rosemary, served with mash and mushrooms. They do the steak to order, so let them know how you like it. Dessert:. With no space left, we had to give dessert a miss, but we should be back soon. Drinks: We tried the Upper East side wine Cup which was a concoction of red wine, cranberry juice, bitters and a slice of orange served on crushed ice. They have a reasonably good selection of cocktails. If you are with a group, they have pitchers of sangria, buckets of beer and bottle service on hard liquor. Service wise, the servers are attentive and courteous. The menu is fairly descriptive, so its unlikely that you’ll need help to order. Insider tips . If you are with a group, they have pitchers of sangria, buckets of beer and bottle service on hard liquor. They have pizzas to share as well. Value for money The starters are reasonably well priced. The mains, taking into consideration portion size, are on the higher side. What to wear It’s a very casual place, so whatever pleases you, really.
