September 1, 2023, 1:10.00 am ET



Jean-Georges Vongerichten is shaking things up at the Tin Building. Seeds & Weed, a vegetarian restaurant that debuted at the food hall's opening, is out and a second location of abcV is in. abcV is renowned for its forward-thinking plant based dishes, tonics and cocktails.

The new abcV features dishes like Black Sesame, House Togarashi with crispy olive oil artichokes, saffron rose aioli, and meyer lemon; Avocado Lettuce Cups with toasted cumin, serrano chili, lime, and pepita; and Whole Roasted Cauliflower with turmeric tahini, za’atar, date molasses, pomegranate, red zhug, fresh herbs, and pistachio.

Jean-Georges and Chef of Plant-Based Development Neal Harden will be overseeing the new project.
