Farm to table seems to be the trend in so many restaurants these days but ABC Kitchen one of Jean George Vongerichten's wonderfully inventive restaurants is one of the best that I have been too. We shared some of the smaller plates and vegetables have never tasted so good. We could have done without the salmon main dish and just... More

Superb ingredients and an inventive menu made this an incredibly enjoyable lunch experience at a reasonable price. Beautiful, yet understated decor, and beautiful people.

from the street, you would not give this restaurant a second glance, however when the queue to get in stretches for nearly a block, you know it will be something special. Make sure you have a booking, and don't be deterred by the long queue, once inside, the place is huge!. Very cool decor, great service, and most of all,... More

Had an amazing brunch with a group of friends. The food was fantastic and would definitely return. The interior ambiance was modern, contemporary and lively.

We were able to secure a table at ABC Kitchen for dinner, and it was absolutely worth the wait. Apart from the very friendly and proactive staff and the nice vibe, the food was delicious. Crab toast with aioli, roast carrot and avocado salad, fresh cavatelli, and the balck sea bass were only a few of the highlights, so we... More

High level of expectation. I mean it's a Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant. You need a month to get a reservation. And then you have to have a concierge make it a reasonable time. It's going to be stupendous, right? Well, it was good. But unfortunately, not stupendous. Went with the recommendations. The crab toast was tasty. The tomato toast was tasty.... More

Love the food. Love the decor. Love the service. And I don't mind that I can't leave the place without spending too much upstairs at ABC Carpets. But I will warn you, a kale salad and gazpacho plus sorbet still landed me in gluten hell...I mean what could possibly have been glutinous in THAT? As healthy a place as it... More

Probably I had too high expectations when I heard you need to reserve one month in advance (not my case since I choose to have dinner on Monday night). The place is very pretty, despite the spider that started crawling up my hand from the moment I sat down. But apart from that, there was nothing special about the place.... More
