ABC Kitchen has a design of ethereal lightness, while its sister restaurant, ABC Cocina, is all dark magic. Both places are as pretty and romantic as it gets. They also share an ethos of green technology via building materials and lighting, and they source their menu items from small, sustainable farmers. At this, the more casual of the two, executive chef Dan Kluger and chef de cuisine Ian Coogan convene a summit that comprises Spain, Mexico and Argentina as seen through a New American prism. The tapas-style menu is user-friendly; categories include a raw bar, table snacks (spring pea guacamole), light & bright (sugar snap pea salad), golden & crispy (peekytoe crab and corn fritters), as well as sections focused on tacos and wood burning–grill treated meats and fish. If you don't have a reservation try for seats at the active bar or communal table.
