Jack's Wife Freda
224 Lafayette St (btwn Kenmare & Spring St)
New York, NY 10012
Jack's Wife Freda is a trendy, all-day eatery located smack dab in the middle of SoHo and specializing in stylish, bistro plates with Middle Eastern flair (shakshuka, kebabs, and roasted veggie sides, among others). Like the dishes themselves, the space is colorful and quaint; imagine your friendly neighborhood diner, but if it were run by Wes Anderson. Brunch and dinner are both solid bets, but expect to wait a bit to be seated -- there's a reason this restaurant is one of the most Instagrammed in NYC.
