Welcome to Wicked Jane — NYC’s fine dining scene’s hidden gem. Chef Zod Arifai has taken his talent across the Hudson to Manhattan and brought fine dining to 8th street. From perfectly harmonious flavor pairings to Michelin-Guide-Approved plating — Wicked Jane is here to serve outstanding Modern American cuisine. You’ll want to grab a table while you can…
Found on 15 West 8th Street, between Fifth Avenue and MacDougal Street Wicked Jane provides an unique elevated dining atmosphere. Plum velvet seating and warm, dim lighting set the tone as soon as you walk in. Originally, Wicked Jane was slated to serve a full two hour tasting menu but has since evolved to à la carte due to pandemic dining trends. Chef Zod plans to bring the full tasting menu to Greenwich Village in the near future.
There is no need too worry if you do not have a wine aficionado in your group. Wicked Jane’s Sommelier helped guide our meal with pairings based on our preferences. The service is just as impressive as the dishes themselves.

I was lucky enough to taste the menu in its entirety. There was not one dish that I felt fell behind another in taste or presentation. Get in to taste Wicked Jane’s creations while you can! Soon, making a reservation will be near impossible…
I’m calling it now.
