Style and matzo ball soup with Jacks Wife Freda

Menu at Jacks Wife Freda in New York City

Maya Jankelowitz is one of those women in New York City. Amazing style, bustling business, adorable family and an Instagram feed to die for. She also happens to be part of the husband and wife team that feeds the city’s well-heeled at Jack’s Wife Freda. She met Dean Jankelowitz when they were both working at Balthazar (a classic Soho restaurant that also feeds the city’s most fashionable) over a decade ago. They started with a family, and now they have two more babies: a location on Carmine Street and a location on Lafayette. Named after Dean’s grandparents, the restaurant is always packed and the food is all about throwback comfort with a twist. We caught up with Maya to talk about being a restauranteur, her personal style and matzo-ball soup.
