Jack’s Wife Freda is a cute little restaurant in SoHo. The owners are a couple who met while working at Balthazar and the result is a spot with a more toned down, yet equally charming vibe. The menu is full of eclectic, inventive dishes that manage to maintain a comfort food feel. On the weekends – and during breakfast during the week – it fills up quickly with the best of the neighborhood, making it a great place to discreetly people watch over coffee and small, delicious dishes.
It’s also a great spot for business meals – mostly breakfasts and lunches – as well as casual dates, outdoor seating and spotting beautiful people. More details below:
Good For Casual Dates: Keep in mind that the restaurant fills up quickly and can definitely develop an “overcrowded” feel. However, if you’re cool with that, it’s a chill place to sit and chat with a date – especially if you can grab one of the few seats outside.
Good For Business Meals: It’s a popular spot for this purpose, particularly for more casual breakfast or lunch meetings. However, I wouldn’t recommend doing business over dinner or brunch here – again, because of the crowds.
