Crisp, Cool and Impressive Veggie Spring Rolls

While I was in Bend, Oregon a few weeks ago, Chef Bette Fraser of the Well Traveled Fork cooked up a couple of magnificent meals for us and our house guests. We had more than a few stipulations including gluten and dairy free, kosher, and vegetarian.  No problem!  We started with this impressive summer ap...

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.

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.

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

By Camillo Ferrari The vibe at the Lime restaurant in Norwalk, CT is a throwback to the late 70's. Square sheets of glass protect faded, striped umber and orange tablecloths and customers' business cards are wedged between cloth and glass. A smattering of haphazardly framed photos of early 1980's T.V. icon...

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.

Nicholas Roberts: Mindfully Organic and Local (chili, too!)

Nicholas Roberts: Mindfully Organic and Local (chili, too!)

I arrived early for lunch at Nicholas Roberts Gourmet Bistro on another dreary February day, looking forward to warming up with veggie centric, creative eats. Self described as “mindfully organic and local”, it is just my kind of place and I'm never disappointed. 11928...

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...

Maimonides of Brooklyn (M.O.B) & Thin Crust Pizza

by Java Nooryani, Brooklyn dweller, vegan explorer. I try not to judge restaurants by their websites but it’s exciting when a place lives up to its own online design and hype. This was the case with M.O.B or Maimonides Of Brooklyn, a vegan restaurant in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill neighborhood. On M.O.B’s...
