THE ART OF THE SNACK
Athleisure Mag|June 2020
This month, we're heading to NYC's Flatiron district to abc Carpet & Home, known for its home decor assortment as well as housing 3 restaurants.
During COVID-19, like the many restaurants, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's abcv, abc Kitchen and abc Cocina have been available to the community through pickup and deliveries. Now, with NYC entering its Phase 2 of reopening, they are excited to begin having people at limited capacity within their space. Guests can enjoy all 3 restaurants as well as having access to their patio which recently opened. We chat with Jeremy Mustakas, Director of Operations of abc Restaurants about their dishes, cocktails and what to expect when dining in during Phase 2.

ATHLEISURE MAG: Tell us about Jean-Georges Vongerichten in terms of his culinary journey and how he came to creating 3 restaurants abcv, abc Cocina and abc Kitchen at abc Home.

JEREMY MUSTAKAS: Jean-Georges Vongerichten and Paulette Cole (owner of abc Home) partnered in 2010 to create abc kitchen, which they intended to be a neighborhood restaurant that celebrated the best locally grown produce and ethically sourced fish and meats in a setting focused on sustainability. Our proximity to Union Square's Greenmarket, where Jean-Georges has been shopping and sourcing for his restaurants for many years, gave us the opportunity to create a platform for local farmers who were doing things in the way of agriculture and sustainable farming. The restaurant would also celebrate local and global artisans, with handmade plates, vintage silverware, and artwork from around the globe. Shortly after opening, abc Kitchen won a James Beard Award for Best New Restaurant. abc Cocina, our latin-inspired small plates restaurant, opened a few years later, and finally abcV opened 3 years ago, our first and only (exclusively) plant-based restaurant.
