Organic Restaurants NYC: Spring Project
The most recent issue of Edible Manhattan is “the good meat issue.” It’s full of inspiring articles about former city dwellers who left for the farmsteads to raise grass-fed, humanely and sustainably raised beef and pork, on farms around New York State and other parts of the country. As a fun little spring project, I’m doing a survey of organic restaurants in New York City, particularly ones that serve grass-fed and sustainably raised beef and pork, that have been raised as hormone-free herbivores who eat grass and greens as nature intended. Here are the places where I’ve made reservations so far.
1. Blue Hill.
3. Casa Mono
6. Hearth – I’ll be going there for the sardines appetizer, mmm…..and the donuts …
7. Northern Spy – Ok, I didn’t make a reservation here because they don’t take reservations. But I already go here all the time, and love their locally sourced food. They are especially great for lunch – they have the best lunch menu in the neighbhorhood, in my opinion. And they deliver from noon to 3pm!
8. Back Forty – Again, I always go here. ALWAYS. I’m completely addicted to their pork jowel nuggets, Catskill trout, and grass-fed burger!
I’ll write up reviews as soon as I go! Any more to recommend?
