Hu Kitchen

Smart. Healthy. Revolutionary.

These three words encapsulate HU Kitchen. Located at 78 5th Avenue, New York, NY, Hu Kitchen is “not just a place to grab food but a destination.” Their philosophy as a restaurant revolves around a commitment to serving both delicious food and food that is good for you.

HU Kitchen is dedicated to serving unprocessed food and making their menu entirely gluten-free and mostly dairy and grain free. Oh and did I mention no GMOs? Friendly to Vegans, Vegetarians, and Paleo Dieters alike, Hu Kitchen is unique in its heart to not just serve food to a niche group, but really to share their passion for natural eating with all humans.

Jordan Brown and Jessica Karp, the sibling owners of HU Kitchen, were inspired by their own difficulty to find a restaurant where they felt they were getting something both healthy and good. So instead of just cooking to feed themselves, the siblings wanted to share their Pre-industrial food philosophy with New Yorkers, and we’re really glad they did.

Most well known for their vegetable mash side dish and their paleo French toast, they have amazing breakfast and brunch dishes, while offering organic beer and raw juice. Find out more about HU Kitchen at

Birds Nest Foundation excited to be partnering with HU Kitchen on Food Day, October 24th. To celebrate the national date aimed at inspiring change in diets and food policy, HU Kitchen is donating 5% of their NET profits to Birds Nest Foundation, who in turn will match their donation and donate gardens to NYC schools.

We’re starting a revolution-bringing nutrition education to classrooms one garden at a time.
