About Us
Classic comfort food with a focus on keeping "it" simple.
Dinner on Ludlow is a modern adaptation of classic American comfort food with a focus on simplicity. Chef Blair Hanelt (formerly of Casimir), Dinner on Ludlow brings good old fashioned “home” cooking to the Lower East Side. Exceptional Cuisine coupled with Lower East Side prices in an intimate setting creates a haven for foodies.
"Our goal is to offer the Lower East Side a dining experience using the freshest ingredients without breaking the bank," says operating partner, Paul Seres. "We are adapting a philosophy of simple and timeless recipes that showcase great ingredients to give our customers a unique and unforgettable experience." Whether is it for an after work bite, brunch, or a private dining affair, Dinner on Ludlow will be a memorable experience.

One of the first things you'll notice on entering Dinner on Ludlow is the meticulous design of the room. Bordered by floor to ceiling glass windows, the open-plan space features a long bar and plenty of intimate tables and banquettes, amid a gothic elegant decor of crystal chandeliers, dark wood and ornate metal filigree that creates a relaxed and cozy space, enhancing the dining experience.

The eclectic selections of modern American comfort foods are both nostalgic and wildly innovative. Challenging the mainstream view and tastes of food has garnered Dinner on Ludlow the attention of diners craving familiar classics with a twist.
Our Team
  • Blair Hanelt
  • Courtney Tietze

Chef Blair Hanelt is a native of Cape Cod, Massachusetts where his culinary career began as a 14 year old dishwasher at a seafood restaurant in 1990. At age 16, Chef Blair was expediting, running the line, and catering outdoor clambakes for 300 plus guests. By age twenty, Blair moved to the bustling city of Boston where he worked at the trendy South End restaurant, Blue Wave, before taking on the position of head chef at local favorite and neighborhood bistro Geoffrey’s. It was there that he began to hone his culinary skills and develop his distinct palate.


In 2002 Chef Blair relocated to NYC where his first job was as Sous Chef at La Brunette in Williamsburg. He followed up with a brief stint at Tenemant on the lower east side, before making a move to Casimir, an East Village staple. For nearly nine years, Blair humbly served the neighborhood where he lives and loves his culinary creations with an East Village twist.


Chef Blair continues to this day working on evolving Dinner on Ludlow’s imaginative take on modern American “Comfort Food” executed with a cultivated palate and eclectic flair.
