‘American,’ ‘Chic,’ and ‘Fried Chicken’, three words that find their home in one restaurant. ABC Kitchen offers that special breed of American comfort food with the glamorous twist of culinary school presentation. If you are looking to expand your food horizons, look no further than the organic fried chicken with wild spinach plus basil and butter hot sauce. Truly, comfort never felt so sophisticated.
The menu specials at Westville, like NYC itself, are always changing. This is a good thing because the food is so great it would be a shame to waste such good cooking on a fixed menu. The Union Square location offers anything from char-broiled burgers to watercress salads. This is one of those restaurants that New Yorkers love to love, simply because the food is delicious.
