New York City is home to endless opportunities for design enthusiasts. However, in a city as rich in architecture, art, and design as New York, it can be tough to hone in on the truly must-visit destinations for design lovers. After all, it seems like a new design hotspot opens up every day, rendering formerly coveted destinations stale or obsolete.
To help you make the most of your New York City visit, rather than focus on well-known staples like Central Park and the MoMA (which are entirely worth your time), here is a lesser-known, often overlooked spot that can really make your visit special.
Awash in white, aside from a smattering of organic accents, like raw-edge tables, ABC Kitchen is the embodiment of a warm exhale. But even better than the peaceful interior, is the conscious menu it offers. Specializing in innovative, seasonal fare sourced from local farms and cooperatives, chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten serves up a fresh and inspiring menu that's completely free of GMOs, pesticides, antibiotics, and hormones. Innovative dinner offerings include roasted hake marinated vegetables in an aromatic tomato sauce and mixed wild mushroom pizza with fried eggs. A rooftop garden provides herbs and microgreens. Basically, there's never a bad time to have a meal at this fresh spot.
The dining room includes found, salvaged, reclaimed, and recycled building materials. If you love vintage, you will love ABC Kitchen.
