“Elizabeth Street Café is an escape from the ordinary. As chef/owners Larry McGuire and Thomas Moorman have proven at Lamberts and Perla’s, dining out isn’t just about being well fed, it’s about being transported.”
— Karen Spezia, Tribeza Magazine

“Part of the beauty of the Elizabeth Street space is that it manages to cater to a range of dining experiences — the casual bar-stool-at-the-counter meal, the cozy bistro-feeling meal, the communal share-a-table meal and lastly, the sun-drenched outdoor meal.”
— Jackie Rangel, Culturemap
