The menu at Jack’s Wife Freda tells the story of the dishes we know and love from our childhoods in Israel and South Africa, as well as New York’s Jewish food and culture, emphasizing bright, fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation. Our love for our adopted hometown is reflected in everything at Jack’s Wife Freda, from our lively atmosphere, all-day dining hours, effortless ambience and joyful sense of community.

You can still find us here in SoHo, or visit one of our locations on Carmine Street in the West Village, West 16th Street in Chelsea, and Wythe Ave in Brooklyn. A visit still invokes the age-old delight of people-watching in New York, and turns a simple meal into a special event. Guests come from all walks of life and all over the world, sitting shoulder-to-shoulder in our cozy banquettes, enjoying breakfast, lunch, brunch, cocktails and dinner. Jack’s Wife Freda defines the quintessential New York restaurant, where people gather to eat with family, friends, and strangers alike.

Jack’s Wife Freda is open all day, seven days a week. We can’t wait to see you soon.

    Great spot for brunch especially if you don’t want to wait too long. We got the breakfast bowl and Mediterranean breakfast; both were excellent. The food tasted fresh and wholesome, with the right touch of spice. The decor is very Parisian chic. Service was a bit lacking.

    The ambiance is great, prefect for a big groups and small group for brunch, lunch and dinner. So we got a kale salad for appetizer for $16 portions is good for two only. Food we got: Chicken Kebab $18 - good portion for one only, tasty and delicious would recommend getting it. The chicken is delicious and perfectly cooked. Spaghetti and Chicken Meatballs - This is delicious but for me the sauce is kinda salty. However, the chicken meatballs is so tasty and perfect portions for the pasta. I would rate it 8/10 🤍

    Came for Saturday lunch with friends from Chicago , I took them here because this is one of my favorite restaurant and they impressed with the foods and dessert. Try to arrive early on weekends as the place seems to get packed very quickly but the wait not that long, the waiting lines might scare you. Try it this place is amazing Staff was also friendly.

    Loved this simple menu and it just embraces the breakfast all day foodie. There were quite a few breakfast options and lots of sides to choose from. Everything here was delicious, especially the roasted cauliflower with a garlic cream sauce. I loved my Jack's Breakfast entree, skirt steak at it's best. Tender, moist and perfectly medium rare. The vegetable curry was a surprise hit as well.

    Hotel was near by and always saw this place packed out so we decided to try brunch. The waffle is nice and the yogurt gave it a tart flavor. I’m a burger enthusiast so I tried the Jack burger and added feta. It’s an ok safe choice. Not knocking. Definitely a dozen better options to choose from. Love the design and decor.
