ABC Kitchen in New York City is absolutely adorable and the food is great! It’s pretty famous in New York and a little tough to get into, but it is a great restaurant choice if you are in the city. It’s rustic decor makes it charming and cozy, and when I went it was a Friday night and it was buzzing and packed with people. Creator of the ABC Kitchen menu is the famous chef Jean-Georges, where he is passionately dedicated to creating each dish using only fresh organic and local ingredients. We had a very “cheesy” dinner lol…you’ll know what I mean when you check out my food reviews below!
ROASTED KABOCHA SQUASH TOAST, FRESH RICOTTA & APPLE CIDER VINEGAR
They brought this as complimentary from the house, and after my first bite I knew I was going to have a good meal at ABC Kitchen. The salty and creamy ricotta cheese mixed with the flavors of the sweet squash on that fresh toasted bread was heaven. It was such a delightful combination of flavors, a little tart, sweet, salty, creamy, and crispy because of the toasted bread. Great little taste to start off the meal!
HOMEMADE RICOTTA, FIG COMPOTE & GRILLED BREAD
The creamy ricotta is just amazing! You can’t go wrong with bread and cheese, and the fig compote added a sweetness that pairs very well with the saltiness of the ricotta. It reminded me of having green apples and brie cheese. The sweetness of fruit works very well with cheese. Great little starter to the meal as well.
This was just cheesy goodness. Made with their homemade ricotta cheese mixed with other cheeses, it was very rich in flavor. Once again, can’t go wrong with cheese and bread…we were getting a little burnt out on cheese at this point though lol…
PIZZA WITH MUSHROOMS, PARMESAN, OREGANO & FARM EGG
MORE CHEESE! I’ve never had egg on a pizza before so it was quite the experience. I really enjoyed the “gooey” yolk soaked in with the cheese. I love mushrooms too, so this was a good pizza to me. It was different because of the egg and it didn’t have your traditional tomato sauce. A lot of cheese and bread at this point, I was starting to get a full stomach lol.
HOUSEMADE RICOTTA RAVIOLI, HERBS & TOMATO SAUCE
Cheese overload lol, but a great pasta nontheless. The ravioli pasta was silky and melted in your mouth. The tomato sauce had great flavor, and their homemade ricotta cheese is a must try! Simple and great ravioli dish.
RED SNAPPER WITH CHILIES & HERBS, BABY MARKET POTATOES, & SPINACH
This was recomended by our server. At this point I was just glad to see something in front of me not made with cheese lol! A light dish- I wouldn’t order it again but if you are a healthy eater that likes fish then you would most likely enjoy this dish.
APPLE PIE WITH CINNAMON ICE CREAM
OMG. The crust on this thing….it was perfection. Flakey and buttery, and I loved the cinnamon ice cream with it! A great apple pie.
CHOCOLATE CAKE WITH MALTED CHOCOLATE GANACHE & TOASTED MARSHMELLOW ICING
Not a chocolate fan like this, way too rich for me. I had a little bite and couldn’t do more than that. Not my thing, but I did like the marshmellow icing. It made this chocolate cake unique.
BLOOD ORANGE SORBET
This was the perfect end to a great meal. It was so refreshing to end on this. I love sorbet!
