ABC Kitchen is a celebration of the best ingredients that each season has to offer, all served in the classically elegant style for which Jean-Georges Vongerichten is widely known. Market-fresh dishes from chef Dan Kluger, like roasted carrot and avocado salad with crunchy seeds, sour cream, and citrus, stand alongside Vongerichten mainstays like pretzel-crusted calamari. The décor is fresh, with an utterly cool urban sophistication that pairs perfectly with the style of the home furnishings store it’s connected to, ABC Carpet and Home. The restaurant was awarded the recognition of Best New Restaurant by the James Beard Foundation in 2011, and remains in the rotation for serious restaurant-goers in New York City.

Foursquare Tips
ABC Kitchen serves some of the city's best salads, as well as great pizzas and a fancy cheeseburger. And save room for the popcorn-topped ice cream sundae for dessert. [Eater 38 Member]

Mushroom pizza goes down in history and I don't even need to mention the level the salted caramel sundae reached. Sashimi caught me off guard - spot on.
Varun Shetty
Brunch? Get the Varun 3 course dessert tasting menu: doughnuts, French toast, salted caramel sundae. You're young. Enjoy yourself. You'll have years to recover.
Food & Wine
Chef Dan Kluger met boss Jean-Georges Vongrichten at the Union Square farmers’ market, where he buys local ingredients for his sustainable menu. The farfalle with kasha and veal meatballs is perfect.
The salted caramel ice cream sundae is the best dessert in the city
nice roasted eggplant toast and nice crab toast too !try the roast carrot & avocado salad as well as the black sea bass ! simply sublime !
The food, especially the daily “Market Table” specials, is seriously delish. We like to come with a few friends for a long lunch of sampling small plates.
New York Habitat
Just a block from Union Square, ABC Kitchen is a nice dinner spot. Don't miss out on the crab toast appetizer and fried chicken entrée!
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]
Make a reservation! It will be worth the wait for the fresh, farmers' market ingredients. Arrive early to shop in the adjoining ABC Carpet and Home...such an amazing spot for rare finds.
Try the Pear & Blue Cheese Salad
Gansevoort Hotel Group
An absolute design/decor standout with extraordinary local, sustainable, and organic offerings. The peekytoe crab toast, the kabocha toast, the bass and the ice cream sundae are out of this world.
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!
The Corcoran Group
The décor is absolutely stunning, and it doesn’t outshine the excellent food. Try Fluke Sashimi, Kasha and Bowtie Pasta with Veal Meatballs and the Salted Caramel Ice Cream Sundae.
The Salup Group
Try the classic, caramel-rich three scoop sundae, topped with peanuts and candied popcorn.
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.
Helped by herbs from his rooftop garden, Jean-Georges creates a global menu, served in a room surrounded with photos by Elena Lyakir.
The Wall Street Journal
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.
The New York Times
Taste the wages of someone else’s sin: Healthy, haute-organic food that happens to be great, from the prolific Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
The menu includes greenmarket ingredients in dishes like Peekytoe Crab Toast, Shaved Fluke with Blood Oranges, Roasted Pork T-Bone with Apple Meyer Lemon Puree, & Chocolate Layer Cake. Enjoy
