I had a fantastic dish with beets and yogurt as well as an open faced crab toast. Both were fabulous. My husband has the salmon. Also very good but not so unique. The tone and energy in the place is great. we do love it--only issue is we ordered iced tea and expected a refill. We got the refills but... More

This app told me this restaurant has gluten free options but that's NOT the case. The food was good though, staff reasonable friendly.

Really beautiful restaurant to visit if you are in NY looking for Farm to table or wholesome food restaurant. Food was really good, simple, fresh, fine restaurant. Prices a little bit high but you are paying for quality and again the restaurant is beautiful. I would preferred to eat somewhere else next time, this wasn't my favorite but still it... More

Last year we visited here for Brunch so this year we went back for dinner..The restaurant is just awesome. The food is fantastic and the service is just excellent. We ate the Fried Chicken and Pork Confit both were spectacular...then came desert Jean Gorge version of a Snickers...blew us both away. We'll be back ABC...hopefully soon.

The decor at ABC Kitchen is adorable and homey. The staff were very friendly and helpful. And the food was delicious! The sodas were great and even though I wasn't 100% sure what I ordered it was great. I would highly recommend as it is a lovely restaurant!

Having been told that the earliest table we could get was 8.45pm we arrived slightly early to discover that they were seating walk-ins before us despite our having asked to be put on a wait list when making the reservation. The Hostess's attitude was particularly negative and further riled myself and the native New Yorker who had made the booking.... More

Everything was perfect about my lunch at ABC Kitchen. The decoration and the environment are great, the service is flawless, the food is amazing. We shared all our appetizers, main dishes and desserts, so I had the chance to try a lot of things - salad, fish, sundae, etc. The kitchen/staff even brought us some little complements, which was really...

We met a friend from New York for a late dinner. ABC Kitchen was one of her favourites, so we were keen to try it. It's a tapas style restaurant, so we tried 4 or 5 different dishes. The service was superb and the decor was cool. It's a furniture store during the day, so it's got great furniture and... More

We chose to take expensive taxi rides both ways from our hotel to have dinner at ABC Kitchen based on the stellar reviews on a number of sites. The restaurant definitely has a "hip" vibe, but we found the service indifferent and the food average at best. It seems to be popular with locals, so perhaps we just had a... 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.
