NEW YORK CITY GUIDE: JACK’S WIFE FREDA

Practically everyone I’ve met in New York has a list of restaurants they’re anxious to try. I started mine after reading your comments on this post and have been adding to it based on friends’ recommendations and pretty Instagram photos ever since. As a challenge to myself to a) try new places in new neighborhoods and b) branch out into more lifestyle content without posting recipes I can’t cook, I decided to start sharing some of my newfound favorites here on the blog with the help of my friend Amy’s fabulous photography!


What: Sunday brunch at Jack’s Wife Freda

Where: 224 Lafayette Street, SoHo

Why: Adorable branding, avocado toast, cute waiters, outdoor seating, waffles made with rosewater… Yum

Have any of you been to Jack’s Wife Freda? What are some of your favorite brunch spots in the city? You know I’m taking notes!

  2. Oh I’ve never heard of this place before. I will have to try it. Waffles made with rosewater sounds heavenly. Have you tried Penelope’s yet? It’s amazing! I’m also fond of La Giara and Markt. Markt has chocolate chip pancakes with Belgium chocolate sauce. Need I say more?

  3. You’re so right about having a list of restaurants you’re dying to try in NYC-I think mine is a mile long! This place is definitely on it. My favorite brunch spot is probably Sarabeths-amazing pancakes. I love the location near the park where you can sit outside, and the one on Madison which is in what feels like an old townhouse. Also Alices Tea Cup-it’s super cute and the food is surprisingly delish!

  4. I’ve somewhat embarrassingly eaten here twice in the past 3 days. So good! Next I have to go for brunch and not just dinner but it’s such a charming ambiance. Let’s you and I go sometime soon!?
