Not so much a greasy pub for a city daily as a healthy, wheatgrass shooting, veggie-friendly environment with a magazine stand and a coffee shop.
LOVED IT! – I just had an AWESOME veggie burger there... Yum Yum Yum!!!!! I wish I knew the secret recipe! I was also pleased with the kind/ quick/ knowledgeable service.
Great Vegetarian options, great service – Low key place where you can have fun people watching and catch up on the latest dirt with all the magazines.... Parking can be a pain if you don't know to go underneath and valet... the artichoke is amazing and so are the buffalo wings!! I am a vegan and I never get sick of them. The service is great.... Seems like a fun place to work . everytime I go I seem to have a waitress or waiter with a great sense of humor... I usually bring people from out of town here when they visit,.... I live a few block s away and I consider it my home away from home... It's a good feeling when you go somewhere and people remember you, where you feel like a regular... " like everybody knows your name".
Anyway, it's a great place... Just find parking underneath or get lucky at a meter!!
My Favorite Restaurant 10 Years Running – I just happened to read the previous negative review. I am shocked. I have been a good customer at the Newsroom (including my family and friends) for the past 10 years. I have never been treated like you describe. One of the reasons I frequent this establishment every week during these many years is because of the service I receive from everyone including Jenny. She makes our meals so enjoyable and always makes us laugh.
By the way I am not a celebrity and I am a person of color.
Thank you , John.
Terrible 1st experience – The venue and the menu are not good enough to have to tolerate discriminatory service. My boss and I went for lunch and when we walked in and told the waitress that it was only the two of us and we wanted to eat outside, she looked at us and told us to grab our own menus. We were seated and the service was extremely poor; it took long for us to get our drinks and even longer to receive our food, we were not asked at any point if everything was fine or if we wanted anything else. Additionally, the waitress, named Jennifer, never made eye contact and when we asked for napkins, she tossed them on our table! It was a terrible experience and although, the establishment is one that I initially wanted to take my friends and family to?the sour taste that was left in my mouth with the disrespectful service that we received and the lack of action taken by the representative that I expressed this concern to, will prevent me from returning!!! I walked way thinking that it was non-celebrity status and/or color of my skin that provoked these distasteful actions.
Best Carrot Cake Ever!!! – I absolutely loved the NEWSROOM, you don't have to be a vegan or vegetarian to enjoy. The atmosphere is awesome and the food is delicious. I highly recommend this place to everyone looking for a relaxed atmosphere, great service and fab food!
Healthy food, Great Service... – Best food for health freaks!! Their veggie burgers are extremely tasty and I recommend them for people who want healthy food but dont want to sacrifice taste. The staff is very friendly and I was seated promptly. There are many celebrities there as well. Perfect for people watching.
Great food for the health freaks – Great tasting food for people who like to eat healthy. They have newspapers and magazines to read while you are waiting for your food. The staff is quite friendly and polite as well. Very good place for people watching, I always see celebrities when i eat here.
Something for Everyone – Great place for the health conscious and huge menu variety....something for everyone! We were a party of 4 on a Sunday afternoon and It did not take long to be seated. The food was very tasty. Our waitress was friendly, quick and very responsive. She "broke' a rule and allowed the 4 of us to split our tab on 4 separate credit cards. Parking on Roberton is challenging, although there is parking in the office building next to Newsroom. Keep in mind Newsroom will validate parking, however it only reduces the amount you pay. Parking isn't free w/ validation.
Great food and fantastic service! – I have no idea what the last reviewer is talking about. No meat? Huh? Yes, they have healthy dishes for vegetarians and vegans, but they also serve chicken, fish, and filet mignon. The grilled artichoke is the best I've ever had.
'News'Flash: We Serve No Meat! – Calling all vegans/vegetarians, whatever...If health food is YOUR thing unlike mine, this will be your mecca. Only healthy food graces the pages of their menu. Service was good though. Since this restaurant is located directly across from The Ivy, watch your step when leaving. You just might trip over some papparazi.
