The basics of pleasant dining is well executed in the lovely plain setting of JV's ABC Kitchen. Deliciously fresh twists on simple yet masterfully prepared food, well mannered service and warm hospitality come together nicely behind an unpretentious door that shouldn't be missed, although walk-in is nearly impossible.

We were thrilled to find this excellent restaurant. The service was perfect and the menu had a great assortment of local and organic foods. There were two of us dining and we chose to try appetizers so we could taste more items on the menu. Each item was perfection. I highly recommend the crab toast with lemon aioli and the... More

Great service. Amazing food and cocktails! This should be on your must list when visiting NYC! But get a reservation, because there was a wait on a Sunday night!

Grossly unimpressed. Loved the carrot juice /ginger martini, but the $34 Black Sea bass in broth was served about 90 seconds after I ordered it ( or so it seemed), and any meal I have cooked in the last decade was tastier. And it was the size of a large appetizer. On the positive side, some of the "table "... More

My wife and I enjoyed a quick dinner before seeing Hamilton. The staff did a great job expediting our order in less than 45 mins. We enjoyed the house-made ricotta with cranberry, fabulous lemony crab toasts, and amazing crispy pork belly with bacon jam and turnips. This place is awesome.

Beautifully decorated big restaurant. The bar side has high tables for bar type of food and amazing cocktails. The bartender Jon was super friendly and knowledgeable and took care of us while we waited for our client to arrive. We then moved to the restaurant area and the service was equally good and friendly. Everything is pretty, from the decor... More

We had a fantastic experience at ABC Kitchen. Everything we were hoping for- fresh food beautifully and creatively prepared, fabulous, knowledgeable staff and all together an awesome experience. Sure, it's loud and busy, but that's half the fun. The Ginger Margarita was to die for! Summer, our waitress was one of the best, she made a fantastic experience even better.... More

It was good.Nothing really special, especially for New York. Crowded, loud, decent food but a $25 cheeseburger?

We were totally wowed by everyone and everything at this restaurant. While waiting for friends to arrive, we sat at the bar. We asked the very knowledgeable bartender about their bourbons and were very happy with his recommendations. He knew his stuff and was very personable. When our friends arrived, we were immediately seated for dinner. The food was amazing.... More

Staying in Flatiron District

Neighbourhood Profile
Flatiron District
Offering many of city’s best restaurants and shops set amid classic New York architecture, the Flatiron District is no longer under the tourist radar. At 23rd Street is the famous triangular Flatiron Building, which makes a good picture no matter what angle you photograph it from. Be sure to look up at the elegant architecture as you stroll the streets- much of this neighborhood is part of a historic district that was home to many of the city’s most famous department stores at the turn of the century. At the northern end of the neighbourhood, Madison Square Park is best known for being the home of a famous burger shack, but it can also be a quiet refuge to spend an afternoon, and it frequently hosts interesting public art exhibits. In the lower part of the Flatiron District you'll find Union Square, a bustling crossroads at all times of day and night.
