Situated on the ground floor of the upscale ABC Carpet & Home furnishing store, ABC Kitchen is chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's valentine to fresh-from-the-farmers' market fare. Diners enjoy locally sourced, organic food on a menu featuring everything from hamburgers to halibut. The restaurant, which opened its doors in summer 2010, is environmentally friendly and casually chic enough to draw out Hollywood's most conscious eaters.

Chace Crawford enjoyed a leisurely late lunch in New York City on Saturday. The former Gossip Girl star and a male friend were spotted at ABC Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's celeb favorite restaurant.
Crawford – looking casual in jeans, a T-shirt and baseball cap – decided on the house roasted turkey sandwich with applewood smoked bacon, arugula and jalapeño, which he said sealed the deal for him. His pal had the Akaushi cheeseburger (which is known as Oprah's favorite burger) with herbed mayonnaise. They both sipped ice tea and bottled water.
While most New Yorkers were preparing for the impending Frankenstorm on Sunday, Katie Holmes ventured out to upscale eatery ABC Kitchen.
Joined by a blonde female friend, Suri, another child and a bodyguard – who was stayed seated at the bar as the ladies dined – the Dead Accounts actress was hard to miss.
"Katie was all dolled up, lots of makeup and dressed to impress," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She was wearing very high heels, a dark green silk shirt and carried a fuchsia clutch."
Jessica Simpson may be in New York City for meetings, but the singer, who's in talks to be an X Factor judge, has also been enjoying the company of fiancé Eric Johnson – and several Big Apple eateries. One stop on her dining itinerary: perennial favorite Dos Caminos, where she enjoyed Mexican food earlier in the day. That night, Simpson and Johnson stepped out again, this time for dinner at hotspot ABC Kitchen.

Katie Holmes, having a romantic 32nd birthday dinner with hubby Tom Cruise at ABC Kitchen in New York City. The couple was casually dressed – he wore jeans and she was in a lacy top – and very affectionate at their late-night meal. According to an observer, the two were very cozy at their table, laughing and enjoying themselves. Earlier in the weekend, the two took daughter Suri to see the New York City Ballet's Nutcracker – and the family headed backstage, where Suri got to meet the dancers and pose for pictures.
