An absolutely massive (9,360 square feet!) new location of Sarabeth’s restaurant/bakery opens today at 381 Park Avenue South (at 27th Street) just northeast of Madison Square Park. The location is the space formerly held by Primehouse New York, which closed last year.
It will be the 9th and largest location for Sarabeth’s. Founded by Sarabeth and Bill Levine in 1981, they are probably best known for their fruit jams/preserves, as well as their brunch, and their creamy tomato soup with gruyere. It’s a welcome addition to the neighborhood, where there are not a lot of restaurants who really put a heavy focus on brunch. So you have a new brunch spot to add to the rotation, and they seem to have lots of larger tables for getting together groups of friends for a meal. It looks great inside.
They also have a full bar (open until midnight) with specialty cocktails and craft beers plus a lunch and dinner menu full of creative takes on classic American cooking, so it’s a good choice for a workday lunch or dinner any night as well. The dinner menu includes dishes like Colossal Crab Meat Guacamole with Homemade potato chips, the Adult Grilled Cheese with Manchego, gruyere, cheddar, and velvety cream of tomato soup and the Bourbon Braised Pork Belly with Butternut squash ravioli. The Bar Snacks also look great (Crab Beignets with Dijonaise, Beef Tartare with Atomic horseradish, Scallops Sliders with Meyers lemon aioli, salt vinegar chips, etc). Executive Chef is Freda Sugarman.
