When Vegetables Star at Le Verdure, Eataly

When Vegetables Star at Le Verdure, Eataly

Written and photographed by Marla Cohen I work only doors away from Eataly, a slightly intimidating Italian food emporium that is a cross between an Old World food market and a three-ring circus. Whether you are seeking a sit-down lunch or hunting for an obscure ingredient, Eataly probably has what you’...

Mediterranean Flavors Sparkle at The Cleveland

Mediterranean Flavors Sparkle at The Cleveland

On my first visit to The Cleveland we scored a table on their beautiful back patio. As the skies darkened over SOHO/NoLita we appreciated being snugly cocooned from the busy neighborhood.  Co-owners Paul Shaked and Hudson Solomon are in their mid-twenties and bring a youthful energy and a bit of Brooklyn v...

A Meditative Meal at Hangawi, NYC

A Meditative Meal at Hangawi, NYC

By Hannah Kaminsky Not so far from the maddening crowds of Manhattan midtown, there sits an oasis of tranquility, hidden in plain sight. Prompted to remove your shoes before entering the dining room itself, this simple gesture simultaneously suggests that all other extraneous distractions be left at the do...

A Fresh Spin on Summer Salads at Haven’s Kitchen, NYC

A Fresh Spin on Summer Salads at Haven’s Kitchen, NYC

As the season heats up and farmers’ markets everywhere suddenly have heaping piles of crisp, rainbow hued salad ingredients to offer, I needed a little jump start to get me thinking about new combinations and uses for all those spicy greens and plump beans. So when I ran across an article about Haven’s Ki...

Kajitsu Reborn and Revisited

Kajitsu Reborn and Revisited

Contributed by Hannah Kaminsky There's something different about Kajitsu, and it's not just the seasonal menu, refreshed every month to highlight fresh produce at its peak. The entire restaurant itself has picked up and moved uptown to a new space in Midtown, large enough to accommodate two separate dining...

Table Verte,Vegetarian French Bistro & Carrot Salad

Table Verte,Vegetarian French Bistro & Carrot Salad

If you’re staying local this summer but dreaming of Paris, head to Table Verte on 7th Street in the East Village, NYC, for a taste of traditional bistro fare. Well, maybe not so traditional since Table Verte is vegetarian. And as far as I can see, it is the only French vegetarian restaurant in NYC. That al...

Gobo Inspires with Vegetarian Goodness & Crispy PB Tofu

I appreciate the calm each time I tuck into Gobo, a vegetarian retreat with convenient locations in the West Village and  UES, NYC. The mostly blond and spacious interior is simply appointed with undressed wooden tables and comfortable cushioned seating. Plenty of space between tables encourages good convers...

Candle 79 Lights the Way with Paella & More

Candle 79 Lights the Way with Paella & More

I'll admit to feeling a quick flutter of excitement when friends suggest eating together and the expectation is that I chose the “perfect” spot. I rapidly flip through my mental rolodex, wondering if they want the meal to comfort them or blow them away with offbeat creations? Do they want a hip, cacoph...
