Here are some more places around New York that we enjoyed:
Over the weekend we visited Ancolie, a new cafe where all the food is sold in jars. It’s a little on the expensive side, but the mix of ingredients was interesting and tasty. Miriam got the grain jar, which had butternut squash, apples, cauliflower, and farro:
Cyril got the winter salad with chicken, goat cheese, lentils, and cranberries:
We also found a pretty cool place to eat in Williamsburg: Sweet Chick. It’s a fried chicken place, so Cyril got himself some chicken and bacon-cheddar waffles:
But the truly AMAZING thing is that they have vegetarian fried chicken!!! Miriam almost died from excitement when she found out she could get a veggie fried chicken bucket. Check it out (with a biscuit on the side):
In the spirit of disclosure, no, it wasn’t quite like the real thing. But it was pretty darn close – so much so that Cyril tried to sneak off with the leftovers the next day.
By the way, they also have a pretty tasty mac and cheese appetizer:
And finally, we visited L’Amico to get their Dough to Go kit and used it to made a pizza at home. The kit comes with dough, sauce, fresh mozzarella, and basil, plus instructions on how to make one of their pizzas.
It’s pretty easy: just stretch out the dough, cover it with tomato sauce, and tear the mozzarella into a few pieces and spread those on top alongside the basil.
Then bake it at 400° and in 15 minutes you have a nice, thin crust pizza for two.
That’s all for now – but we’ll put out more updates on restaurants we like that have tasty vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, so check back soon!
