Abe Fisher

Modern Jewish

  • 91
Overview

Inspired by cuisine of the Jewish diaspora, Abe Fisher showcases a menu of Jewish and Eastern European-influenced fare like veal schnitzel tacos with anchovy mayo, chopped liver on toasted rye with pastrami-onion jam, corned pork belly reuben or a bacon-and-egg cream dessert. The open kitchen, black-and-white checkered flooring and bustling vibe draw in diners sipping global wines, European beers and ciders, house sodas and shrubs with their small plates.
