Yuko, Nick and I needed to catch up after not seeing each other in a while so I suggested getting brunch at ABC Cocina. ABC Cocina is decorated beautifully because it’s part of ABC Home and their food is also pretty awesome because Jean Georges is their chef!
We started off with cocktails – this was after I went to AKTinMotion for an AKTease class and after Nick had taught two SoulCycle classes! Yuko ordered the Bloody Mary:
And Nick and I ordered grapefruit margaritas:
We decided to share everything, so we started off with the guacamole and chips, topped with sunflower seeds:
Then we shared fish tacos:
The fish tacos were definitely a miss – the tortilla was a bit soggy and the fish was too heavy, but the guacamole was very good and worth ordering.
Nick ordered the eggs Benedict:
With a side of deliciously homemade sausage:
Yuko and I shared French toast:
With a side of freshly shucked corn mixed with jalapenos, cilantro and cotija cheese:
The meal was excellent and great for brunch – we had so much fun catching up, having inappropriate conversations while Nick’s students were next to us at the communal table, and promising each other that we wouldn’t let so much time pass without seeing each other. The three of us after lunch:
ABC Cocina is busy during brunch, so I’d recommend making a reservation beforehand!
