Jack’s Wife Freda is an immigrant love story, times two. Freda and Jack met and married in Johannesburg circa 1930. Years later, their grandson Dean packed his few belongings and found himself in New York City, where he met Maya. She too had emigrated to New York to find that special something. Sparks flew, and another immigrant love story was born. They were married in Maya’s homeland of Israel, at their spiritual center of the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

With a passion for hospitality and great food, they worked separately and together in many downtown establishments before opening the doors of Jack’s Wife Freda in 2011, on Lafayette Street in SoHo – they settled on the name of Jack’s Wife Freda- invoking the memories of being welcomed home again by loved ones. Dean’s grandmother Freda was a wonderful host, gracious and warm with family, friends, and strangers alike—and she always made sure there was lots of food.

Freda was a Jewish grandma, and like her, nothing gives us more pleasure than happy and well-fed guests. Jack’s Wife Freda is renowned for greeting everyone like family, with staff and servers who have as much fun as our customers, and food that is as good to look at as it is delicious to eat. Our complete menu is served all day–come for lunch and stay for dinner!
