Today I have to tell you about Chalk Point Kitchen because:
1) It's all organic
2) They use only sustainable, local fare
3) They cater to the Glutenoids, like myself
4) Every dish is absolutely mouthwatering
Need more convincing? Okay, so here's the lowdown:
To celebrate my boyfriend's birthday, he picked CPK as our dinner spot last Thursday. Located in the heart of Soho, it's an easy 5-minute walk from either the C train or the 1 train. It's also right next to tons of really cute shops. Shopping trip and great noms? Win win. Not only do they serve dinner, but they also serve BRUNCH (which is fantastic, by the way, but we'll focus on dinner today because we still have four days till the weekend haha!).
After we were seated, we were promptly served homemade pickle spears in lieu of a bread basket. They already won my heart at that point! To start, we both ordered the Vegan Autumn Wedge for ourselves (because it's way too good to share).
For our mains, I ordered the Roasted Spinelli Squash, he had the Grass-fed Cast Iron Ribeye, and we split a side of roasted Brussels sprouts. Oh my gosh, was it all amazing.
Everything was just right; not too salty, not too seasoned, and not too done. We literally cleaned our plates, and why not? It's food you that you don't have to worry about being laden with chemicals and additives. Just good-for-you food that tastes good too! Plus, it's fun to not have to cook or worry for once; I get into ruts of measuring, so when it's out of my hands, I really try not to worry about it. Focus on the meal in front of you, and stop thinking about the future.
And at CPK, I really can just relax. It feels good not to worry, and we definitely plan on going back soon! Adding this to our top favorite restaurants :)
Hey there and welcome! I'm a 20-something-year-old running, painting, and eating my way through NYC. Hope to see you along the way!
