When we arrived we were a little concerned. Didn't look like much from the outside. But when we got in, tried one of the amazing cocktails (Bloody Mary and Ginger Martini) and then went through to have a fantastic organic meal - we saw how good it was. Really great place. Interesting menu. Lobster was amazing and the kale salad... More

Went for lunch. Reservations are highly recommended and at 2:30 place was still packed. It's a large restaurant and buzzing with lots of trendy lunch goers. Menu is quite contained but still varied enough that there is something for everybody. From salads, to pasta, pizzas, sandwiches and more. Portions are quite small - especially for the price - but all... More

ABC is an excellent restaurant but it lost the edge it had when just opened. That "special" thing is simply not there anymore.. You feel it every dish.. Pizza is the only dish left with same "amazing" connotation to it. The rest is just "very good"now, not excellent anymore..

Stylish restaurant just North of Union square. Nicely decorated, good selection on the menu, reasonable plates and prices. All our foods tasted great, the service was very friendly and always helpful. Although not really a family restaurant, our kids liked it a lot.

We travelled from Sydney Australia to New York with a few must do's on our list, one of them being ABC Kitchen. So glad we booked! Food was amazing, beautiful decor, a long lazy lunch. Would highly recommend a visit.

We got married in New York and went here for our evening meal with 4 friends. It was perfect and we were made to feel very special. There was another wedding table behind us, loved that they sit us all together, I like to believe they did this on purpose! Everything about the food, cocktails and wine was perfect. We... More

Very cool restaurant with a great atmosphere, the menu offers a range of good options from healthy delicious salads to sumptuous cheeseburgers. We had the heirloom tomato toast to start and the carrot and avocado salad both are highly recommended and were incredible. For a mains I had the veal meatballs pasta which tastes very meaty but is delicious. I... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighborhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of the city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets - much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighborhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being home to a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
