The Musket Room brings the spirit of New Zealand and the country’s diverse cuisine to Manhattan’s Nolita neighborhood.
Chef and owner Matt Lambert (AvroKO) brought on general manager Nathan Wooden (Per Se, Restaurant Eugene in Atlanta) to lead the service team.
Lambert, a New Zealand native, created a menu that charts the evolution of New Zealand cuisine, from the country’s Old World traditions and Asian influences to its modern day dedication to local and seasonal offerings.

I went here with a couple of friends to try a Michelin star restaurant for the first time, and it was totally worth it! The staff was attentive and courteous, and the environment is rustic with modern accents. The staff created a curated experience where they presented the flavors and textures in the dish and pointed out the more subtle taste notes, which are best appreciated if enjoyed slowly and mindfully. My favorite was the Berkshire pork: so succulent, and complemented well with the potatoes and hangi vegetables.

Food that makes your sense run wild. These guys do amazing things with the most simple and strange selections of food. We had the short story degustation choice and were blown away. It actually is a very long short story and the serve it slow so you end up amply satisfied. The wine selection is also excellent.

Pretty disappointed relative to my expectations. The five course tasting menu left me wanting more. Great service though.

Every time I come to New York, and my friends and I decide on Dim Sum...we choose this place. The space transports me back to Hong Kong - even the random mall-like space downstairs looks/feels like HK. Awesome. The Dim Sum is ok. This is NOT going to be the best dim sum you've had. BUT, the price is always right. Average tab I've had here tends to be under $10 a person. Awesome. The first time I was here, I caught up with some friends - we sat around for about 3 hours, and tab was $8 a person. Again, awesome. I did come on Lunar New Year (please, don't call it Chinese New Years. I know my peoples are the most populous of those celebrating, but there ARE people who celebrate it too, ya know!). I though the place might be terribly packed - which it was. But the line wasn't longer than 20 minute wait, and things were quick. Add entertainment of the lion dancers, and 20 minutes don't seem long.

Hi This review is great but I'm pretty sure there is a mix up with the location.

They have the fanciest vegetarian price fix you'll find in NYC at a reasonable price, we got the 10 course for $145; definitely some creative standouts such as a glass mason cup of mushroom mousse topped with whiskey gelee, tofu gnocchi, and a tasty and refreshing passion fruit sorbet dessert. The food was on the rich side, so we recommend going with the smaller tasting menu for the health conscious.

Worth every penny! We really enjoyed dining at this place suggested by friends. Food was great. We especially liked the mushroom soup and the pork belly - but watch out: I've been told that menu changes quite often in this restaurant. :)

Terrific prix fixe. Brilliant decor, food, and staff makes you feel like you're in New Zealand. You can tell they care about every little detail.

Excellent service! Good price for a michelin star. Presentation and food reminds you of outdoors, and some items are a bit more on "experimental" side, but overall very good. Highly recommend the berkshire pork!
