David Burke Kitchen
david burke the james
Celebrity chef David Burke's résumé includes ventures both serious (Townhouse, Fishtail) and head-scratching (anyone remember Hawaiian Tropic Zone?). Here's hoping his latest—this farm-to-table venture in Soho—falls into the former category. The 95-seat dining room channels the refined-rustic zeitgeist with denim banquettes, a wooden ceiling and woven leather chairs. Local, seasonal fare is the focus, but Burke's signature playfulness is visible in dishes like Ants on a Log (bone marrow with snails and fennel butter) and the Sunday special Shanks a Lot (three shanks of different meats). Upstairs at the glass-enclosed Treehouse Bar, guests can order cocktails, such as the Pomegranate Frost (cachaça, pomegranate, rose water, champagne) and the Rabbit Hunter (bourbon, ginger beer, mint, lime), and snack on flatbreads with savory spreads served from preserving jars.

Located in the super cool, stylish, and place to be seen James Hotel in Soho, David Burke Kitchen isn’t just a spot for people watching. The food is amazing too. Start with the hanging bacon, yes I said hanging bacon. It is something you must see to believe. The burrata and squash carpaccio is light and full of flavor, and another great choice. If you have never ever thought of ordering a head of cauliflower for an entrée, this place will change your mind. It is fried, then baked for extra crispiness and topped off with farro, raisins, and toasted almonds. Don’t forget to save room for the decadent rum roasted banana monkey bread.
