Jack's Wife Freda

50 Carmine St Manhattan


Jack’s Wife Freda is a lively all-day bistro executing American-Mediterranean cooking & classic cocktails in understated digs. Serving breakfast, lunch & dinner, 7 days a week. Long hours, deep sense of hospitality, playful sense of humor and reasonable prices. Revising familiar twists on everyday food.

Husband-and-wife owners have drawn on their New York restaurant backgrounds (Israel & South Africa respectively) and their family histories to bring appealing new flavor to an urban archetype. Together, they’ve created a hospitable hangout with the understated style and savvy all-day service, infused with their warm, welcoming personalities and foods that remind them of home.


If you were going to give the cuisine a long and unwieldy name, it might be South African Israeli Jewish Grandmother Cuisine.
