The Viand (New York City)

The Viand (New York City)

The final diner I went to while in New York City was The Viand. I heard good things about it so I was excited to try it out.  The Viand is located on the Upper West Side and there is also a Viand Cafe as well as Viand in New York City.

The Viand

The Viand Atmosphere: A
The outside of The Viand stands out on the Main Street on the Upper West Side. It’s got cute shades, windows, and a closed outdoor seating area. When we arrived, it was already busy and we scored one of the last tables.

The Viand Coffee: B
The coffee at The Viand was decent but nothing to write home about. It was hot, but there was nothing unique or unusual about it.

The Viand Food: A
The Viand menu has a combination of the typical diner as well as upscale items. A few things that stuck out to me were the huevos rancheros, burgers, flatbread, and pancakes.

For an appetizer, I decided to order the Mediterranean flatbread. The flatbread was one of the best I’ve had. There were olives, onions, tomato and feta. I have no regrets.The Viand flatbread

For my entree, I ordered the blueberry pancakes with whipped cream. An interesting combination of food? The pancakes themselves were excellent, and they were light and fluffy. I was pleased with my choice.
