ABC Kitchen

Located in New York's ABC Carpet on 18th Street between Broadway and Park, ABC Kitchen prides itself on 'local, organic and original food.'  It was also named best new restaurant by The James Beard Foundation.  Book your table in advance, the place was packed and so was the bar.  Fun for an after work or perhaps after shop drink.  
The first three photos are of the yummy toasts - the ramp and goat cheese, chicken liver and crab with lemon aioli. Other dishes we tried out; the roast carrot and avocado salad, sugar snap pea salad, roasted beets with house made yogurt, the pretzel dusted calamari, mushroom pizza with oregano, parmesan and egg, cavatelli with spring vegetables, jersey tomato and buffalo mozzarella pizza, kasha and bowtie pasta with veal meatballs, and crispy pork belly.  
For dessert, who can say no to a gourmet sundae made with salted caramel ice cream and topped with candied peanuts, popcorn, whipped cream and chocolate sauce.  The apple crumble tart and chocolate cake, runners up.  Nice little plates they're sitting on.
