Located within a renovated and repurposed printing factory in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen, PRINT Restaurant is among one of the country’s leading restaurants dedicated to seasonal, sustainable cuisine. The first solely-owned restaurant from longtime restaurant consultant and investor, Adam Block, the inspiration for PRINT came from a combination of Block’s Northern Californian roots and working with former clients such as Alice Waters (Chez Panisse) and Judy Rodgers (Zuni Café). PRINT’s Ag-American menu is updated daily to best showcase ingredients collected by in-house forager Meghan Boledovich from the farmers market, regional farms and other artisan purveyors. Designed by David Rockwell, the soul of the restaurant is extended through its decor, which conveys the sentiment that quality-procured ingredients are better appreciated on a beautiful plate in a casual, but elegant setting. Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner (and brunch on weekends), PRINT is located at 653 11th Avenue (at 48th Street).
Since its opening in 2010, PRINT has maintained a truly organic, slow-and-steady approach to delivering on its promise. During the growing season (May through October) there are times when PRINT. is able to attain a 90% fulfillment of local, traceable products on the menu. Organic and traceable products that are not indigenous or grown in the region, such as citrus and coffee, or some winter menu ingredients are responsibly sourced through farms and foragers in their respective regions.
In order to maintain this level of commitment, PRINT employs an in-house forager as part of our culinary team to research, quality-check and liaise with purveyors including farms, local winemakers, craft breweries and greenmarkets. Some of the best products can come from very small vendors who don’t have the same infrastructure and supply chain as larger farms or distributors. By employing a forager, PRINT can source these special items while supporting small farmers and purveyors. By working directly with farmers, the middleman is eliminated, saving cost markups typically passed through to customers.
