It's flat iron. Casual elegance. Wholesome organic food with high quality ingredients and a touch of creativity. Smallish portions, definitely quality over quantity. Always busy and noisy, but not too overwhelming, making it a fun place to have dinner or sit at the bar.

We were able to secure reservations about a month out, but that was only for 1pm....the available evening time was 10:30pm. So, If you want evening.....Look to MONTHS ahead as it's one of the hardest reservations to get in NYC. Not touristy at all and packed-to-the-gills with Manhattan's all-knowing Foodies. The atmosphere was very artistic and beautiful and it was... More

I love this place. It's located on the ground floor of the abc building, a store on 6 floors that sells furniture, carpets and houseware. The restaurant is nicely decorated, the food is mediterranean and always fresh and tasty. It has a twin restaurant, la cocina, which is adjacent and where the food is spanish tapas. For It's always crowded,... More

And definitely not good value for money! This is a beautifully designed restaurant with a nice menu, and I had no doubt it would deliver a great meal. Sadly, that wasn't to be: my starter of the day - poached egg with Jerusalem artichokes and shaved truffles, didn't have much of a flavour and was served lukewarm by a young... More

My husband and I have been wanting to go to ABC Kitchen for a long time, but could never get a reservation. We had pretty much given up. That was a mistake! I was able to snag a reservation for a work dinner and it did not disappoint. We had the Roasted Kabocha Squash Toast, the Housemade Chicken and Pork... More

Went back to ABC Kitchen after too long of a time and was so happy to see that it has maintained its excellent standard. The menu has many inventive dishes - had difficulty deciding what to choose and am happy to say everything I ordered was delicious. The décor is funky and inviting and the place certainly has that great... More

The food is unbelivable, we got tartare and pizzas. Staff was friendly and the restaurant has great vibes. Everything excellent. Only thing it's a little too pricey for a casual spot.

Great stylish restaurant with friendly staff. They will accommodate diet restrictions, but it's probably best if you bring a list of the main culprits for low-FODMAPers. They'll probably end up preparing you a very delicious fish filet.

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.
