I checked out Ken & Cook during private previews last week with a crew of good friends. It’s unanimous- this is a spot for the scene and cuisine!

The American Brasserie has a great vibe…the exposed brick, sleek bar display, airy feel, and downstairs lounge makes for Nolita’s latest HOT SPOT!

Richard Diamonte, a Jean-Georges alum (former executive sous-chef) delivers a wide-range of American classics with a unique touch. We had a tasting of the entire menu and I was impressed.

Chow Faves:

Grilled Squid Salad- Amazing texture and flavor.

Beet Salad- Bold and tangy.

Arugula Salad with Parmesan- A great start to the meal.

Bibb Salad- Standard.

Oysters Rockefeller- Fresh and satisfying. They will offer an extensive raw bar.

Steak Tartar- Pure goodness!

Short Ribs- Tender and tasty.

Fried Chicken with Biscuits- Finger licking good!

Wagyu Burger- Juicy and well seasoned.


Monkfish and Sea Bass- No pictures because it was rotated around the table before I could get a shot. Both dishes were well prepared and delicious.

Fettuccine with Cauliflower- Strikingly good.

Pappardelle with Veal Ragu- Nice flavor profile.

SIP:

THE SWEET SPOT:

We had a bevy of desserts- my favorites were the apple pie and beignets!
