abc kitchen is yet another jean-georges vongerichten restaurant. i read about it a little after it opened last year bcuz of its focus on being sustainable, using organic ingredients and has committed to source 70% of the menu from within 90 miles of the restaurant between May and October.
m&i shared the crab toast with lemon aioli for appetizer which was SO AMAZING! for our main dishes, we had the black sea bass with chiles and herbs, baby potatoes and spinach – and – a cheeseburger with herbed mayo and pickled jalapeno. the cheeseburger was one of the best burgers we ever had! finally, we tried some of their drinks: m the green dream which had cucumber, celery, chard, kale, cilantro, jalapeno, lemon & a complex superfood – while – i had a homemade cherry-citrus soda. the green dream tasted fresh and the soda was lightly sweetened and refreshing. we were so full after the main meal that even though we wanted to try their much raved about sundae, we had to pass. but we vow to go again!
in addition to the amazing food, i also loved the décor of abc kitchen and it earns its high praise. the interior design is a collaboration between chef Jean-Georges, restauranteur Phil Suarez, and ABC Home CEO & Creative Director Paulette Cole from the unique lighting, beautiful photographs by a local artist and lovely etched flowers into the wall.
