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.

    Super cute and well lit decor with a great brunch vibe and menu! Came here with some coworkers and were promptly seated in a large booth by the window. Our server was super gracious and sweet, huge fan of her, along with the assortment of dishes we got for the table to share. Would definitely come back again for good food at a decent price!

    Really solid brunch place. Great atmosphere for quite literally any occasion. Outdoor and indoor seating is beautiful. Food was so well cooked and seasoned and love the mediterranean inspired flavors. I highly highly recommend the zucchini fritters!! The staff were beyond kind. In terms of comparing it to other brunch places in the city, the food and prices aren’t that insanely different. But I will say, the atmosphere and space does make it unique!!

    I ordered their poached eggs with halloum and dried tomatoes and i would definitely order it again. It was fulfilling, tasteful, and the perfect portion size for breakfast. They have a variety of food but i wish their breakfast section had more options. Their staff is very attentive, quick, and friendly. The atmosphere was nice. Its a big place with lots of seating areas.

    I LOVED THIS PLACE! Came the last time I visit NYC with my mom and she loved it. And I had to come back this year too. The staff is friendly, the food is SO good! And it’s a nice place. The Chelsea location is really loud and busy but I would recommend to go to the one in Soho. The tuna salad and the fried zucchini 10/10!

    It has a charming atmosphere and felt like I was in a French cafe. The service was quick and the food was good- however, The waffle was not anything special so I would recommend another dish for brunch. The Mediterranean Breakfast was yummy. Really accommodating to my pup too.
