One Bedford is in the space across from Five Leaves formerly occupied by Nights & Weekends, and the nicest thing we can say about it is that it’s open late. Also, the service is friendly. Other than that, it’s a pretty average restaurant. The food is your usual mix of burger/kale/octopus, and none of it really stands out. But if it’s a Friday night and you just want to eat somewhere quiet, this place works. Although you should probably just go across the street to Sauvage and sit at the bar. Some people might talk to you, but you can always ignore them.
