David Burke Kitchen

David Burke Kitchen is Chef Burke's chic SoHo location at the James Hotel New York. Chef Burke's imaginative reinterpretations of classic American cuisine-from casual share plates to formally-presented dishes-are combined with a focus on locally-sourced ingredients. True farmer-to-table spirit is invoked here. Many of the selections are hearty and seductive, full of bold flavors born from traditional cooking techniques. At the same time, those who prefer lighter, less complex fare will be amply satisfied as well, with creative salads, whole chickens and snacks.
Complementing the myriad of dining options are the multi-level, indoor and outdoor spaces that comprise the restaurant. The main interior is inspired by the surrounding neighborhood and blends the cool, industrial simplicity of SoHo's airy lofts with the rustic warmth of a country abode. The dining room seats up to 130 and well suited for a boisterous dinner party or wedding. Upstairs, the glass-enclosed Treehouse Bar offers a birds-eye view of the bustling street below and easily plays host to a cocktail party or a surprise birthday bash.

In season, David Burke Garden, the restaurant's lush outdoor space, offers several options for seasonal gatherings. Verdant and vast, the entire Garden accommodates up to 350 for cocktails, a premiere party or a product launch. The smaller runway area features outdoor cabanas and is fitting for a ladies' luncheon or a cocktail reception. The Chef's Table is a unique gathering space for the chef's special guests, and makes any birthday or rehearsal dinner a truly special occasion. On another level, the Bird's Nest is more private and invokes an urban backyard, complete with comfortable casual outdoor seating. It is ideal for a baby or wedding shower or celebratory cocktails. Above that, the treetop-skimming Boat Landing is intimate, has dramatic views of the surrounding urban landscape, and is a unique setting for a casual get together.

David Burke Prime is home to one of Chef Burke's patented Himalayan salt-lined dry-aging rooms, where his patented Salt Brick Beef ages for up to 100 days.

David Burke fabrick

Derived from the Latin faber, meaning "artisan" and intentionally spelled with a "ck," fabrick's unique moniker is not only a nod to the brick-and-mortar facades common in the restaurant's historical Garment District neighborhood and the bricks of pink Himalayan salt that line Chef Burke's patented beef dry-aging room, but also to the city of New York itself. Tucked behind a lush patio on 38th street between 5th and 6th avenues, David Burke fabrick extends through much of Archer's first floor with its airy dining room connected to the main hotel lobby by an intimate lounge area serving as a natural pass-through. After gliding through the elegant lounge - bedecked in warm leathers, exposed brick and colorful accents - guests entering fabrick's main dining room will be first met with a glimpse inside the bustling open kitchen. With high ceilings and an open skylight accented by wood tabletops and enameled red chairs, the space is on one hand fresh and playful while also being industrial and striking.

With an open, welcoming feel, this modern, industrial space is perfect for large gatherings like product launches, movie premieres and corporate cocktail receptions. A semi-private space nestled next to the open kitchen, the Chef's Table Room at David Burke fabrick is the perfect space for corporate dinners, family gatherings and festive holiday parties. Set next to the open kitchen and with clear views of the main dining room, the Chef's Table provides the quintessential seating for social gatherings.
