ABC Cocina: Great Seasonal Latin, If You Can Stand the Wait

New York J. Kenji López-Alt 5 comments

Like its neighboring restaurant ABC Kitchen—also a Jean-Georges/Chef Dan Kluger tag-team—the menu is eclectic but seasonally based, simple to read, but interesting in its details. Though I've spotted Jean-Georges and Dan Kluger in the kitchen on a few occasions, the ship is helmed day-to-day by chef de cuisine Ian Coogan. Every single dish sounds like something you want to eat (and for the most part, is). More

Erin Zimmer's 15 Favorite Vegan Meals and Snacks in NYC

New York Erin Zimmer 2 comments

I was only vegan for a month. February—the shortest month of the year—at that. Not long enough to comprehensively explore the many vegan options in this city, but long enough to befriend some new favorites that I otherwise might have scanned past on a menu as a flexitarian. More

New York Carey Jones 4 comments

"This is my idea of perfect brunch food," said Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen at the New York Culinary Experience on Saturday. We can get on board with the enthusiasm. Come see how chef Kluger makes his ricotta, and how he makes a baked tomato-egg brunch dish that shows it off. More

8 Squash Dishes in NYC We Love

New York Carey Jones 4 comments

One of the best parts about vegetables is how their natural sweetness comes out when they're cooked well; and no vegetable does this as brilliantly as squash. I can't think of anything I'd rather eat in the middle of winter than a heaping bowl of perfectly roasted butternut, enlivened by nothing more than olive oil and salt. But chefs around New York get more creative than that, of course, featuring squash in everything from curries to crostini to queso fundido. Here are eight squash dishes we love from around the city. What are your favorites? More

Vegetable Heroes: ABC Kitchen

New York Carey Jones 1 comment

At ABC Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's locavore-minded Union Square restaurant, chef Dan Kluger does excellent things with pasta and seafood and crudo—but this isn't Crudo Month, is it? And that's fine, because I'd happily eat nothing but ABC's vegetable dishes for the rest of my days. Come see what's on the menu this winter. More

Touring The Hudson Valley With Chef Dan Kluger of ABC Kitchen

New York Erin Zimmer 1 comment

The Hudson Valley is that beautiful, expansive chunk of land along the Hudson River that's home to many farms, some of which are represented at New York City's Greenmarket. The farmers trek into the city with their cherries, beets, goat cheese, and many other fresh goodies piled onto flatbeds to sell at farmers' markets and to some restaurants. We recently road-tripped with ABC Kitchen chef Dan Kluger, to meet some of the farmers that supply his ingredients. Here are snapshots of the goat cheese, squash blossoms, whiskey, radishes, and more from our day of cruising around in tractors (and convertibles). More

Cool Drinks, NY: Solar Power Smoothie at ABC Kitchen

Drinks Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At ABC Kitchen the Solar Power smoothie is most certainly a full meal. (And at $12, it should be.) Starting with a puree of fresh avocado at the base, the smoothie incorporates frozen pineapple chunks and plenty of Thai coconut meat. You do get what you pay for: good ingredients, and plenty of it.

30 Savory Bites from Taste of the Nation, NYC

New York Maggie Hoffman Post a comment

Monday's New York edition of Taste of the Nation proved to be an epic meal. The highlights among the savory dishes included an insanely rich Spanish mackerel crudo from the Union Square Cafe, a cup of creamy stracciatella with sea urchin, caviar, and nasturtium granita from Roberta's, and a suckling pig croqueta from Bar Basque that came with a dropper of salsa verde and a slow cooked quail egg.

Top This: Mushroom and Farm Egg Pizza (à la ABC Kitchen)

Slice Erin Mosbaugh 8 comments

There is something alluring about a golden egg yolk running all over your pizza. At Jean-Georges Vongerichten's Greenmarket-inspired ABC Kitchen in New York, Chef Dan Kluger takes breakfast pizza to new heights by placing an oh-so-runny farm egg atop his earthy wild mushroom, Parmesan, and oregano pie. Did we mention that he throws a little homemade ricotta and tangy Tomme-style cheese in there for good measure? It's a pizza I'm definitely going to want to make at home. More

New York Kathy YL Chan Post a comment

At $2 each, cookies from ABC Kitchen may be one of the best finds from a restaurant where the food is great but the prices aren't quite friendly for everyday visits. More

ABC Kitchen: Team Jean-Georges Goes Local

New York Ed Levine 5 comments

How many Jean-Georges Vongerichtens are there? In this age of downsizing and retrenchment, he has managed to open not one, but two serious restaurants in New York in the last two months. What we wanted to know: Can a world-class chef open this many restaurants and have them all be a reflection of his philosophy and his culinary voice? More
