I very luckily found myself with a free day in NYC last week. I went to brunch, roamed some favorite stores, went to the Whitney Biannual, and popped in at Angelica Kitchen – one of the most famous organic vegetarian restaurants in the country.
I admit that I’d had a huge breakfast and time wasn’t on my side – I wanted to stop in on the LES before trekking up to the Whitney, so ordered light. Oh, for more time and a hungrier belly. I ordered the camberte, a combination of cranberry and orange juices, apple cider and kuckicha tea, and the mixed sprout salad (pictured above).
I loved the crunch and subtle sweetness of the salad, but if you’re stopping in for a real lunch, think of it as an appetizer, as the portion is relatively small. It was wonderful, though, to have a peaceful solo lunch in this famous little haunt.
