Cuisine: Organic, Contemporary, American
Summary: Jean-Georges Vongerichten's new restaurant at ABC Carpet & Home offers dishes made with ingredients found close to home. There are market table items like an heirloom bean salad, local cured meats and cheeses. You'll also find an assortment of fresh salads, pretzel dusted calamari, whole wheat pizzas and wood oven roasted Maine lobster. Desserts include warm apple crumble, chocolate cake with toasted marshmallow icing and doughnuts with blood orange marmalade.
I’m a huge sucker for a burger outing with historical significance, and my Sunday brunch at ABC Kitchen was chock full of it. Three years ago, I finished graduate school and was treated to the cheeseburger at ABC Kitchen for the first time. It was tremendous and went a long way to inspire the creation of Burger Weekly. Last year, my mother came to visit New York to attend BurgerVersary 100. This year, I flew my mom in for Mother’s Day and combined the two occasions for a delightful meal back at ABC Carpet and Home’s original eatery.
