I love NYC Restaurant Week—it’s the perfect time to try out new and different restaurants without spending big bucks. I had been reading a lot about healthy hotspot Rouge Tomate; so my husband and our friends decided to check it out last Friday night. And we couldn’t have been more pleased! What’s great about this Michelin-Star restaurant is that they have a culinary nutritionist on staff to ensure that the dishes have perfect rations of meats to vegetables and fruits to nuts. Their philosophy is SPE™—they use 3 guidelines to “harmoniously blend extraordinary cuisine with authentic nutrition.” It’s all about sourcing seasonal and local foods, while also preparing and enhancing the meals in a sustainable manner. I love their motto, but enjoyed the food even more!! We all selected plates from the Restaurant Week menu along with the wine tasting (highly recommend). I had:

  • Appetizer: Tombo Tuna Poke (Asian Pear, Watermelon Radish, Oyster Mushroom, Sesame)
  • Main Course: Cauliflower Risotto (Heirloom Cauliflower, Parmesan, Garlic, Lemon Confit)
  • Dessert: Golden Pineapple (Passion Fruit Curd, Mango, Kiwi, Coconut Tapioca)

 

Bon Appetit!
