Village Voice's Description

In the Venn diagram of health food and haute cuisine, ABC Kitchen is a conjoining factor. Celebrated chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten expands his culinary empire at this chic shrine to organic produce and seasonal cooking, located inside the ABC Carpet and Home store. Hungry shoppers can snack on roast carrot and avocado salad, or cavatelli with morels, peas, ricotta, and fresh chiles. More robust entrées include roasted Maine lobster with oregano and lemon-chile vinaigrette, and roast suckling pig with bacon marmalade and grilled baby leeks. And while the food is sophisticated, the whitewashed decor and plaid-attired staff allow for a casual, faux-farm feeling that makes enjoying this spot easy.

    Amazingly thoughtful locavore grub, elegant setting but not stuffy, impeccable service. Virtually a flawless restaurant. And Dan is super nice.

    It’s not only the best place to catch the ‘vegetables are the new meat’ trend, it’s one of our favorite restaurants of the year. Featured in Where to Eat 2011!

  • Don't let the homey atmosphere fool you; make a reservation at least a week in advance. Popular lunch items include include the turkey sandwich, cheeseburger, and the whole wheat pizzas.

    In a dining world overrun with offal, Québécois heft, and pasta, it's nice to have a meal where a roasted carrot can blow you away. [Eater 38 Member]

    Taste the wages of someone else’s sin: Healthy, haute-organic food that happens to be great, from the prolific Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

    Jeffrey Steingarten tells us this is his "favorite new Manhattan restaurant" in his New York Diet. He's a particular fan of the sauteed squash with parmesan.
