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.

    We had the special breakfast of the day, which wasn’t on the menu. It included red potatoes, lamb, avocado, and topped with a poached egg. The taste was excellent, we really enjoyed it. We also ordered waffles, which came with whipped cream, mixed berries, and syrup on the side, and I absolutely loved it. The coffee service and the atmosphere were both fantastic. We paid $93 for two people, which might be a bit pricey, but it’s definitely worth it for such a great place. I highly recommend it.

    We had a late lunch/early dinner here. It wasn’t packed so we just walked in and got a seat wherever we liked. Their steak sandwich and fries were really good. Everything was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. The cocktails were pretty amazing too! We loved our dining experience. Very nice servers as well! Would definitely be coming back! Highly recommend.

    We saw this cute restaurant and we were hungry so we tried it. We were very happy to try this place! The service was really fast, polite. Our waitress was really nice & funny. The food was good ! I will be happy to come back. For me, the only bad point is that it's a little too much expensive for what we order.

    Super Lively and Bustling bistro. Cuisine is a mix of American-Middle Eastern Israeli cooking & classic cocktails. My favorite time to go is a weekend brunch, it’s noisy, busy and delicious!

    The attention was spectacular, all the staff were attentive and worked as a team. My waiters Daniel and Mariana the best. I ordered a Sirloin steak, it tasted very good. This is one of the best restaurants in the area, I recommend it.
