Family Recipe

231 Eldridge St. New York, NY 10002 | East Village | 212-529-3133

Location Description:

As the restaurant's name would suggest, chef Akiko Thurnauer produces grub more akin to Japanese home cooking than haute gastronomy. Still, you'll likely be charmed by the bright, streamlined décor. Vegans and vegetarians will also rejoice over a bounty of meat-free dishes like brussels sprouts with miso butter, tosaka seaweed salad, and a burdock root rice bowl. Pescatarians, meanwhile, will savor Family Recipe's do-or-die dish—the okonomiyaki special, A/K/A a molten pancake chock-a-block with seafood and topped with writhing bonito flakes.
