I had tried on several occasions to get into abc kitchen in New York but never was able to get a reservation at a reasonable time for this Mountain/Midwest guy. So it was great I was invited along with friends to their 9 PM reservation leaving me time to take a nap after a long Uber-filled day in New York before dining.
The first thing you are struck with, after walking right by the entrance of the restaurant with it’s simple signage, goes with the decor actually, is the beauty of each chair, table, light and fixture that went into making the physical portion of the restaurant.
Right out of the pages of the home parent owner of abc home, everything was beautiful. We sat at a spectacular round table with holes and notches mortised together in spots and very rough and natural. The serving plates were mixed, eclectic and natural.
The service was simple and knowledgeable, we lacked for nothing and it seemed instantly rewarded. The food was great starting with my order of two charcuterie plates for the table.
The boar salami was deep and rich, but the prosciutto was melt in your mouth and not heavily salted, almost sweet. Everything was beautifully prepared, delivered and happily consumed by everyone at the table.
Thanks to Soa, Jane and Ed for setting everything up, great seeing Marilyn and Elizabeth and of course and always my dear darling wife for putting up with me.
