ABC Kitchen

(212) 475-5829

Owned by superstar chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, ABC Kitchen is nominally his entry into the sustainable, locavore movement—recycled menus, compostable placemats—but the food is much more interesting than the trendy branding suggests. The menu is large, covering everything from personal-sized whole wheat pizzas (the clam with mint, parsley and chiles is delicious) to a fantastic fillet of sea bass, served over spinach, potatoes and a broth scented with rosemary, tarragon, lemon zest and ginger. The unassuming-sounding toasts are incredible: thick slices of crusty bread topped with seasonal vegetables (like kabocha squash with fresh ricotta and apple cider vinegar); so are the creative vegetable sides and salads, enlivened with plenty of chiles and fresh herbs.
