Abigail's Kitchen

Lower East Side, New York, New York
(394 Reviews)

The school, located in Greenwich Village, is owned by Abigail Hitchcock. It has been open for almost 13 years, something of a record in Manhattan.

The cooking classes in in this school offer a unique experience of learning in a working restaurant kitchen. (If there’s a sudden rush, students stand back!) There are also tours in various New York City neighborhoods—Chinatown Shop and Cook is a perennially sold-out favorite. In another popular cooking class, One Night Stand, the student/chef works with Abby to plan, cook and serve family and friends a meal at the restaurant.

We don't have any age restrictions on either our classes or events. We take people of all ages, but those under 21 years of age are not allowed to consume wine or any alcoholic beverages.

This was not my first time taking a class with Abby so I knew it would be a awesome. What a cool unique experience! I highly recommend Dinner in the Dark to anyone that loves food and likes to live on the edge.

Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Fish


Attended: Shop & Cook: Chinatown for Fish

Abigail's class was great, my son and I learned a lot, and the food was delicious as an experience, 5/5 stars. However, I was disappointed that we never received the promised email that she said would include the recipes from that day. We were looking forward to making all the delicious meals! Otherwise, would recommend, but maybe take notes during class since you wont get them after!

Abigail was excellent! She was informative and interactive. Shopping for seafood, especially in chinatown is intimidating. I never used to think much about where my seafood comes from and how it's prepared prior to buying. I feel alot more confident and excited to start eating seafood more!!

The instructor was very kind and knowledgable but I was a little disappointed we didn't actually get to do a lot of the cooking. We learned how to filet a fish (and do one ourselves) which I very much enjoyed but was hoping to do the cooking. Instead, we all watched the fish being cooked different ways. Very nice teacher but not exactly what I was expecting.

I reserved 9 slots for an outing with my team at work and we all had a great time! Abigail was warm and inviting and it felt like we were being welcomed into an intimate, relaxing space where we could learn and taste and laugh!
