Welcome to Family Recipe!
Family Recipe opened on the Lower East Side in September of 2011. Its concept grew out of chef/owner Akiko Thurnauer’s experiences growing up with a food obsessed family in Tokyo, Japan, but her cuisine is influenced by her appreciation of New York City and other places around the world.
It’s not traditional Japanese food; it’s cooking from the heart, satisfying and surprising, created and served in a stylish open kitchen.
“Food for how we live now…A chef working by intuition…sharing what she loves” – New York Times
