Harvest Kitchen has recently opened at 269 Columbus Avenue, between 72nd and 73rd Streets. The new restaurant has replaced The Flying Fisherman which closed recently.
Harvest Kitchen is an American-eclectic restaurant with foods from local farms, lots of organic options, and influences from many international cuisines.
The menu and kitchen are a collaboration from various local chefs and neighborhood foodies. So there is a lot of variety and contrasting styles.

They’re offering a lot of burgers including a tuna burger, house blend, grass-fed, veggie, and an Impossible Burger. I tried their Kimchi Burger ($17) with chipotle mayo, jalapenos and cilantro. It was amazing, as were the fries. But word to the wise: this is one sloppy burger! Bibs are advised. First dates are not. Somehow I walked away with just one tiny stain on my t-shirt.
The guac and chips ($11) are great too. They’re the same as those which were served at AG Kitchen (which occupied 269 Columbus before The Flying Fisherman).
A few more food highlights at Harvest Kitchen: lots of dips and spreads, giant pancakes, lots of veggies, steak, tuna tartare, potstickers, charcuterie boards, homemade focaccia and handmade potato chips. They also have several bowls including a kimchi fried rice bowl, veggie bowl, and a variety of interesting salads.
The drink list features a good selection of craft beers and cocktails.
They’ve designed the new Upper West Side restaurant to be very light and airy with white curtains. And they have a lounge where Fish on the Fly was located.
