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. The original driving force behind ABC Kitchen, Dan Kluger, left in mid-2014 to work on his own projects, but chef de cuisine Karen Shu hasn’t missed a beat. Market-fresh dishes like roasted carrot and avocado salad with crunchy seeds, sour cream, and citrus stand alongside Vongerichten mainstays like pretzel-dusted 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 remains in the rotation for serious restaurant-goers in New York City.

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.

In a dining world overrun with offal, Qubcois heft, and pasta, it's nice to have a meal where a roasted carrot can blow you away. [Eater 38 Member]

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.

Really the food is healthy and the main thing is that vegetables are always fresh.

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.

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.

If you're by yourself on the weekdays around lunchtime, there's almost never a wait if you eat at the bar.
