Siggy’s Good Food & Splendid Slaw Recipe

Siggy’s Good Food & Splendid Slaw Recipe

Siggy’s Good Food sits on a tree-lined block at the quiet end of Elizabeth St. in NYC. The scribbled message on a sidewalk chalkboard beckons, ALIENS EAT FREE! I didn’t see any extraterrestrials but I bet that those in costume may indeed, eat on the house.  The quirky entrance leads streams of devoted...

Vegan Temptations by CHLOE.

Vegan Temptations by CHLOE.

An omnivore, a kosher keeper and a vegan grad student met for lunch at by CHLOE. on Bleecker St. in NYC on a balmy late Autumn day. Together, we waded through the hipster crowd to savor, critique, and agree that we loved almost everything we tasted at this hotter than hot vegan cafe. The dishes were so tasty...

Hummus and Borscht Play Nicely at 12 Chairs

Hummus and Borscht Play Nicely at 12 Chairs

Anyone who has swiped steaming freshly baked pita around a bowl of authentic and creamy hummus knows the real deal when they taste it. The chickpeas are blended to a velvety smoothness with the help of tehina (sesame paste), seasoned simply with chopped or pureed garlic, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a dusti...

Vegetable Heaven for Omnivores, Too

Vegetable Heaven for Omnivores, Too

I’ve fallen hard for the easy neighborhood vibe and colorful, vegetarian dishes at Westville in NYC. The reason is simple, which is a lot like their menu offerings.  Last time I dined at Westville there were 21 market vegetables offered on their daily board. Veggie sides like Curried Okra, Sauteed Kale wit...

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...

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...

All Greek and Loving Every Bite Plus Grilled Citrus Salmon

All Greek and Loving Every Bite Plus Grilled Citrus Salmon

When Maria Loi, owner and chef of  Loi Restaurant  in NYC, read my Kosher Like Me business card she grabbed me by the hand and insisted that I follow her. I slung my bag over the back of my chair before I had even taken my seat,  waved to my dinner companions, who looked both amused and  baffled (I...

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...
