Mulberry Project is a chic restaurant and subterranean cocktail lounge tucked beneath the 'Mean Streets' of little Italy, and boasting an impressive outdoor garden in the rear. The ever-evolving menu of creative plates by Executive Chef Michael "Kiwi" Camplin prominently features market fresh, seasonal ingredients and a variety of flavors to please all palates and perfect to share. The market fresh theme continues behind the bar where some of New York City's premier bartenders offer a 'no-menu' approach to cocktails, striking up conversation and tailoring each guests' libation to his or her particular taste with fresh fruits and exotic ingredients. The outdoor patio & garden feature a 55-person seated dining area with the wooden booths for a group setting, as well as smaller intimate tables for two. Installations and exhibitions by notable street artists adorn the walls and outdoor space, harkening a New York that is seldom seen anymore.
"Had cocktails and apps with a friend pretty early one Wednesday. We sat outside, which was lovely. Can tell it gets very crowded since there were many tables situated very close together. Friend had wine, I had a random cocktail. It's somewhat odd they have a list of pitcher cocktails only, but you can't order off that list for an individual glass. If you want an individual cocktail, the bartender will make you something similar, based on what you tell the waiter you like to drink. Frankly, I wanted to drink one of the cocktails on the pitcher list! I feel like for $15 a pop should be able to pick something off a menu. Anyway, the app with veggies 3 ways was very tasty and plentiful. Ask for more crostini, as 3 pieces doesn't cover the amount of veg provided. The staff was very friendly and accommodating."

"The four of us did enjoy the individual cocktail (mixologist special) found on the menu! The atmosphere was a perfect start to the evening too...great group spot, especially on the courtyard! Would go back for drinks!"
"I had friends join me after work for some drinks and we had to leave because they had sneakers on. Honestly, I understand the need for a dress code for most places but being that NYC is a touristic city and modern, sneakers should be the least of your concerns. Of course my friends felt offended and I left feeling embarrassed but we ended up at an actual bar where what you wear doesn't matter since I'm there to spend my money on booze and enjoy my night with great company. This is another over hyped bar, not because of the horrible experience at the door but because its just a bar! Just booze and chairs. I surely will not return."
