BWW Review: P.S. Kitchen for Delicious Plant-Based Fare in the Theatre District
We discovered a great spot in the heart of the theatre district on West 48th Street. P.S. Kitchen delights their guests with delicious plant-based fare for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. It occupies a rebuilt century old townhouse decorated with whitewashed brick walls, marble tabletops and an inviting full service bar and lounge. This sleek, sophisticated two-story restaurant has a menu that is sure to please vegans, vegetarians and all those who enjoy fine food and drink.
P.S. Kitchen has been created with the mission of donating all profits to charity. This is a fantastic concept that supports the overall community with donations being made to a number of organizations that include The Doe Fund and Share Hope. It is a model for other restaurants to recognize their social responsibility.
We stopped by on a for a Saturday brunch. There are both sweet and savory items that tempt the taste buds. French Toast, made to perfection, is served with strawberry-rhubarb compote, strawberry butter and coconut whip cream. The PS Breakfast is certainly a house favorite with smoked maple-portabella, scrambled tofu, sautéed spinach, tomato jam and toast. You might want to add a table share like their housemade Biscuits and Gravy with chorizo, mushroom gravy or Avocado Toast with soft garlic puree, harissa chili puree, cilantro and lime zest.
We enjoyed some selections from their extensive coffee and tea menu, great for a winter warm-ups. You won't get a better Matcha Latte anywhere in the city and the wonderfully brewed Americano Coffee was delightful.
If you like to pair cocktails with your brunch, you've come to the right place. Classics include Bellinis and Bloody Marys or try a signature drink like their Violet Drop with quinoa vodka, calamansi, rose, lavender and ginger beer or the PS Rose Negroni with gin, rose, dry vermouth, blanc floc de gascogne and prosecco. For brunch guests who plan to relax and linger, they also offer "Bottomless Mimosas" for $35 and Bottomless Mimosas along with one entrée for $45. This option is available for 1.5 hours for guests.
We look forward to returning to P.S. Kitchen for a pre-theatre dinner to try more of their inviting menu items like the Fennel Tartine with caramelized fennel, cashew crème and orange supreme on Sullivan Street Pullman bread or the P.S. Burger, a Beyond Meat patty on Sullivan Street potato roll accompanied by house made queso and thousand island dressing.
Plan a visit to P.S. Kitchen just steps away from the hustle and bustle of Times Square and the theatre district. Whether you want to stop by for a drink, small plates or a complete meal, you'll find that it is an ideal place to relax and enjoy fine plant-based fare in the city.
