Located in the James Hotel New York, David Burke Kitchen opened in 2010 and is overseen by Executive Chef Raoul Whitaker. Kitchen features an interior inspired by the surrounding SoHo neighborhood, blending the cool, industrial simplicity of an airy loft with the rustic warmth of a country barn.
At the entrance, a staircase leads up to the glass-enclosed Treehouse Bar, where guests can enjoy private dinners with handcrafted cocktails and an array of homemade sweet and savory snacks such as Green Circle Chicken Dumplings and Maine Lobster Toast. Downstairs, the 130-seat, loft-like space is divided into a bar and dining room with denim banquettes, a barn roof and a blackened steel bar top. The open kitchen and glass-enclosed wine cave allow guests a peek behind the scenes, where Chef Whitaker’s classic technique and contemporary style are reflected in main courses ranging from Braised Short Ribs with Semolina Gnocchi to Long Island Duck with Sweet Potato Puree and Stone Fruit Gastrique.
David Burke Kitchen's unparalleled outdoor space The Garden, has its own bar, seating for 130 and room for cocktail parties up to 300. The atmosphere here reflects a more casual vibe, and the drink menu is a downtown favorite, featuring beer, wine and inventive specialty cocktails made with fresh, top shelf ingredients.
David Burke Kitchen brings our distinctive approach to SoHo, making the Burke Group’s imaginative cooking style accessible to downtown New Yorkers and visitors alike, for breakfast, lunch and dinner daily.
