OUR STORY

Good Enough to Eat was founded by Carrie Levin in 1981. After completing college in Aix-en-Provence, France, Carrie attended Pru Leith’s School of Food and Wine in London, then moved to New York in 1979. After an initial apprenticeship under Seppi Renngli, then Head Chef at the Four Seasons, Carrie opened the restaurant in 1981 as a result of her desire to create and serve “good, old-fashioned American food.” She partnered with Ann Nickinson, a talented cook operating a small take-out and catering business on Amsterdam Avenue, and together they opened the first Good Enough to Eat restaurant. The eatery became a huge success, noted first for its all-day, bountiful breakfasts featuring omelets, pancakes, waffles, and buttermilk biscuits. It became even more well know when it began offering homemade soups, huge sandwiches, and classic Turkey and Meatloaf dinners, establishing Carrie as one of the first Chef’s in NYC to create and celebrate “traditional” American cuisine.
