For those times you’re in Flatiron with a hankering for the kind of eminently photographable grapefruit gelée that’s good for a few hundred likes...

Or those times when you’re shopping for a Moroccan rug with a thirst that could only be quenched with the right ratio of maca and cacao...

Or you’ve got a coffee meeting that requires a mid-century modern vibe with low and plentiful chandeliers, for some reason...

You’ve now got abcV, a supremely good-looking eatery from Jean-Georges Vongerichten, now open for breakfast and lunch inside of ABC Carpet & Home.

So, full disclosure, it’s an all-vegetarian spot, the type of place where you’re likely to catch up over, say, a vanilla-hemp chia bowl. Menu’s here, and you’ll see it’s divided into sections like “Light & Fresh,” “Warm & Hot” and "Beauty & Wellness Menu.” You might not think that last one is for you, but it’s actually a bunch of plates chosen by the chef, to be shared by everyone at your table. So that’s nice, actually.

And drinks-wise, you’ve got some biodynamic and organic wines, cold-pressed juice, matcha and house-brewed kombucha. You might’ve guessed.

Now, you want to have a look at the splendor. Trust us, you do.
