SoHo Supper

SoHo Supper

Shopping in SoHo on a Sunday can be an exhausting experience, but popping into Jack's Wife Freda at the finish makes any hustle through the crowds worthwhile. The restaurant is set up in a cozy, bright kitchenesque arrangement, with a menu that pulls from the influences of your Jewish grandmother (if you're lucky enough to have one) as well as South African spices and French bistro staples. After working up an appetite shopping, I ordered big, sharing with my date the Bloody Mary Moules Frites, which had hearty chunks of garlic in the spicy, thick broth, as well as the Peri-Peri chicken, pressed, spiced and juicy to perfection served alongside a refreshing diced salad of cool cucumber and tomato. The crowd was a vibrant mix of European and local shoppers all talking excitedly at their tables creating a convivial vibe. The service friendly and efficient. But the food? Superb.
