The eye-catching Orchard House, concept of owners Teddy Kambouris and Kevin Jackasal, is a bright, playful hub of the Lower East Side. Inspired by the area’s rich architectural past and present, designer Steve Lewis of Lewis & Dizon Designs, used the festive, open space to pay homage to the aesthetics of the neighborhood and the vibrant spirit of those who call it home, from tattoo artists to haberdashers to musicians. Diners enjoy a seamless flow from the colorful streetscape into the bright dining space, as the front glass doors completely open, welcoming patrons to sit back, relax and enjoy the eclectic scene.
Teddy Kambouris and Kevin Jackasal set out to create a space where locals can lounge while visitors take in the creative vibe of the Lower East Side, feasting on everything from the eye-popping interior to the reawakened take on New American comfort food. Both Kambouris and Jackasal come from hospitality backgrounds — Jackasal began his career in the hotel industry working for the Marriott, Radisson & W Hotel Group and went on to launch New York restaurants like Kallari Taverna and Rayuela, while Kambouris was raised in New York City in the longstanding family tradition of restaurateurs. Drawing on the wisdom of Consulting Chef Matthew Redington, veteran Jean-Georges sous-chef and graduate of the New England Culinary Institute, the partners were able to create an inspired new menu that brings their vision alive in The Orchard House.
Fried Pickles, which come as chips with a side of horseradish
The Orchard House’s menu focuses on yummy, bite-sized portions that are meant to be shared. House favorites are fresh twists on traditional American comforts, like moist and tender Lamb Sliders, mini-burgers of medium rare lamb served with minted cucumber and scallion on potato buns. A nod to the Lower East Side is the Fried Pickles, which come as chips with a side of horseradish and whipped sheep’s milk ricotta. Or make a date with the Devils on Horseback, plump blue-cheese stuffed dates soaked in port wine and served in a sweetly caramelized wrap of pan-seared bacon. Home-style Mac & Cheese is a classic American staple, blending Parmesan, emmenthal and cheddar cheeses with traditional elbow macaroni.
