ABC Kitchen is a trendy restaurant located in 18th str, just over Union Square. The whole experience is very good. Great atmosphere and ambience, beautiful decoration, attentive service and delicious food. We visited it in a Sunday morning for brunch, so I can't speak for the whole menu - the brunch menu, however, was quite impressive. We ordered the eggs... More

We had the most delicious calamari; it was the best we've ever had. Then we had a burger and the pesto fettucine. All wree delicious but large servings so we struggled to finish them. Chocolate cake pops to finish were delicious.

Beautiful place with the wood tables, lights and decoration. It looks very chic but rustic too. However, it can be very crowded and loud. Tables are very close to each others. Service was good. Food was good but not excellent in my opinion. The appetizer I had was good but nothing special. My fish was fishy and a bit overcooked.... More

I’d wanted to lunch at the uptown Jean-Georges during my recent visit to NYC but could not get a reservation, so I chose Chef Vongerichten’s more casual 18th St. restaurant instead. I also liked the idea that this restaurant uses only locally sourced organic ingredients. Except for atmosphere, I frankly can’t imagine that the uptown dining could have been any... More

The idea of farm to table, fresh organic-plus is not new, but abc kitchen has built a great rep on this style. Five stars Service was fine, attentive and helpful. The food lived up to its fresh theme, but a little bland and basic. Minus one star. We were offered tap or bottled water. We asked for bottled but received... More

Really enjoyed our meal here. It had an interesting menu and the food and service were both great. Liked the interior too (although the lighting was a little too low for us even at 6pm!) and it was quite family friendly despite being quite a trendy restaurant. Would go back.

This is trendy restaurant at 18th Street, and the decor inside was minimum but done fantastic. The service was really great, and the food is fantastic and everything is organic which is great. And the portions are sizable. The only idiotic thing on my behalf was I got the Truffle pasta special, thinking it was the same price as the... More

This was the best fried chicken I have ever tasted. The service was o.k. It seemed our waitress forgot about us and actually had another waiter come over to take our order well after she gave us the specials and took our drink order. There was a table of very drunk guys next to us who broke three glasses in... More
