New World Bistro Bar is an 80-seat gastropub in the heart of Albany's Delaware Avenue Neighborhood. The building is cozy, the food is fresh and creative, and the staff is friendly and nurturing.
New World Bistro Bar has earned local and national recognition, including the 2010 Sante Restaurant Award for Innovative Cuisine and a nomination for "Best Burger in the Capital District" by the New York State Beef Industry Council in 2011. In Albany's 2011-2015 Metroland Readers' Poll, NWBB has consistently won First Place in four categories: 'Best American', 'Best International', 'Best Vegetarian', 'Best Restaurant to Take a Date.'
Original aspects of our 1910 building, such as exposed brick, black pipe and plaster have been incorporated into the Bistro’s design. The restaurant's menu features regional and natural meats, sustainable seafood, local produce, and Freebird Chicken; also a wide variety of creative vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options.
Scott Meyer and Annette Nanes are owners of NWBB and former co-owners of the Spectrum 8 Theatres two doors down the street.
