A Visit to Jack's Wife Freda - Soho

October 11, 2017

Jack's Wife Freda - Soho Lafayette location

Hello friends.  I love visiting different parts of New York City.  I was recently there with my niece and we went to Soho.  I love going to Soho as there are so many designer boutiques, big chain stores, art galleries, high end restaurants, and nightlife.

What I like to do best, is to go have lunch, and then do some retail shopping.  😀

We went there at the end of August and we decided to have lunch at the restaurant Jack's Wife Freda.  This popular restaurant was recommended by my teen, who has been there with her friends for lunch.

The day we met for lunch, the weather was nice and warm, and I took this photo while waiting for my niece to arrive.  It's such a small and cute place to eat and they had some tables set outside.

If you do decide to visit this restaurant, it can get really busy, since it's so small inside.  You might have to wait outside, but we were lucky as there was no wait for a table.

Below is a small map of the location to the restaurant Jack's Wife Freda, located on Lafayette Street, in Soho.  The streets are narrow, and some of them are even cobblestone streets, and the area has so many small shops and restaurants.

We both decided to sit inside to eat our lunch.  I took a quick photo of the menu.  The food is just so good and I love the breakfast and lunch menu.  The food is American-Mediterranean and they have a wonderful food selection to choose from.

The next time I visit I hope to sample the dinner menu.

Shown below is a sample of the dinner menu at the Lafayette Street location.  The other location of the restaurant is on Carmine Street.

I really liked the breakfast (not shown on this menu) and lunch selection of food.  The decision was made, we both decide to eat breakfast since it was early afternoon.

Mediterranean Breakfast

I chose the mediterranean breakfast.  It consisted of two eggs over easy, a chopped salad, with avocado and pita bread.  I had fresh ice tea to drink that I really enjoyed.

My niece picked the breakfast bowl (sorry no photo of that) and that consisted of eggs, quinoa, kale, spaghetti squash, and avocado and a fresh watermelon drink.

The restaurant even has a cookbook that you can buy and make some of their delicious recipes!

Have you been to the restaurant Jack's Wife Freda yet?  I'd love to know.
