For anyone tired of run-of-the-mill nut butters, may I suggest Beyond Sushi nut butters. I tried their Sunflower Halva Vanilla Nut Butter and we managed to polish off an entire jar before I could snap a picture! This creamy spread has a surprising flavor that manages to be sweet and savory at the same time. I went into Beyond Sushi, a vegan sushi spot in Chelsea Market (there’s also a location in Union Square), to pick up a quick snack and was pleasantly surprised by their new line of uniquely-flavored  nut butters and spreads. I sampled this one and it was love at first taste. At $12 per jar, it’s a little pricey, but you’ll certainly be sure to savor every last drop.

Check out their range of other flavors like Almond Rosemary Chocolate and Cashew Cranberry Sea Salt (pictured) nut butters and according to their Facebook page, they even ship!

I have to be honest, for two whole years the SoHo cafe Jack’s Wife Freda has been on my never ending wish list of NYC restaurants to try– the name alone makes it intriguing —  but for whatever reason I kept missing it. Luckily, I had the chance to go  last weekend with Women Who Brunch and […]

In a city with more than 4,000 restaurants, I’ve always been challenged to find a good wine bar — and by good I mean one where the wine selection is as good as the food. In TriBeCa, though, I didn’t have to wander far to find just that. Terroir TriBeCa is popular among Financial District […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Smile To Go

A gem hidden on the fuzzy border between Tribeca and SoHo, Smile To Go isn’t your average greasy spoon takeout spot. The unassuming storefront is nestled among the galleries and boutiques that line Howard Street, a tiny, less-traversed passage between Lafayette and Broadway just north of Canal. If it weren’t for the lunchtime line that […]

New Yorkers love their brunch, but truth be told, it often leaves me feeling tired and groggy. But the organic, vegan-friendly menu at Le Pain Quotidien has the opposite effect. On any given weekend, David and I can be found at the Tribeca location enjoying breakfast after our morning workout. With locations in more than […]

For everyone who thinks BBQ can’t be healthy, think again. In my relationship, one of us is clearly a BBQ lover while the other (ahem, me), would rather eat dirt. Needless to say, I’ve found myself playing the role of good sport in a few BBQ joints over the years, munching on sides while my […]

Healthy Hot Spot: Dig Inn Seasonal Market

When I worked in an office, I longed for healthy lunch options. Believe it or not, I eventually even swore off  deli salads because of the lack of organic produce available and the negative energy of the guys who slapped them together at warp speed behind the counter. (Hint: Think about the energy in the […]

I gave up my bagel and cream cheese habit several years ago. Thankfully, you won’t find that kind of deli fare on the menu at Kutsher’s Tribeca. Instead, you get a contemporary spin on Jewish American classics artfully served up (in ample portions) in a clean and modern bistro setting. Eager for a light lunch, […]

I get the Sunday Blues really bad. No matter what time of year it is, when Sunday rolls around I usually have some anxiety about the week ahead. The weather was perfect yesterday so David and I took a long walk from home in TriBeCa to Eataly on 23rd Street. Yesterday was my day off […]
