The restaurant by Chef Dan Kluger is located at 21 W. 8th Street in the heart of New York's Greenwich Village. The restaurant is the culmination of a lifelong dream for the chef who has cooked in some of New York’s most beloved restaurants for the city’s top restaurateurs. He is best known for leading the teams at ABC Kitchen and ABC Cocina as Executive Chef (named Best New Restaurant 2011 by the James Beard Foundation). Chef Kluger’s skill for creating delicious market-driven dishes, with unexpected but incredibly pleasing flavor combinations, is on full display. The menu, comprised of small and large shareable plates, spotlights farms and farmers whom Kluger has gotten to know intimately over 20+ years of frequenting the Union Square Greenmarket.
The homage to Arthur Kluger is just one of the many ways the spirit of New York City courses through the restaurant’s veins: the energy of historic 8th Street seeps through the front windows and feeds the dining room; the style of warm, effusive hospitality that is a centerpiece at Danny Meyer’s establishments, where Kluger was introduced to the restaurant industry, is ever-present; and, in the kitchen, years of learning from chef-mentors is evident This space, simply put, is a celebration of New York and all things local.
