2013 and 2014 Michelin Bib Gourmand awardee
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
We’re very happy to announce that Michelin has honored Family Recipe with its prestigious Bib Gourmand award for a second year in a row. To celebrate, we’re offering selected bottles of wine and sake for half price on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Sundays. On Mondays and Tuesdays we are also offering half-price on two customer favorites — Cauliflower steak (Mondays) and Lobster Ramen (Tuesdays).
