I'd definitely frequent a place like that! The prices aren't too bad, either, especially for an NYC restaurant.
We have a place that's somewhat like this in town, except it's more of a vegan establishment, but there are a number of dishes that are just vegetable/fruit/nut-based and primal. However, it's incredibly pretentious on top of being expensive, so despite trying it with good intentions, I do not intend on returning.
Very cool. Best I can do is just order meat and veg at local restaurants and hope the oil they used isn't too shabby. We don't eat out much as a result. I would definitely be interested if something like this opened up near me. Enjoy it!
holy crap what a small world...jordan i will be coming there very soon and alot..most likley this wkend to start..i will ask for you..my name is chris...see you there...i am so excited about this place..
That's actually pretty cool. I read a good bit of it. I see that they "embrace" olive oil, coconut oil, avocado fat and natural fats from animals that eat their normal diets, but I'm curious as to what they cook their food in. I'm assuming olive and coconut oil from that blurb? I'd expect them to NOT use cheap seed oils or I'd be very disappointed. I'm okay with occasional eating of grains. While grains are clearly a contributor to disease, the major diseases we face today that have become epidemic surely are not caused by occasional grain intake since we've been eating grains for thousands of years and heart disease and cancer have only reached epidemic levels in the past few decades. It's those disgusted, rancid seed oils. I'd rather eat CAFO chicken tenders breaded in wheat flour and deep fried in virgin olive oil than a steak seared in soybean oil. That's how I feel.
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
Hey, ChocoTaco. Thanks for checking out the site. I'm with you on the bad oils. It's for sure more expensive, but we walk the walk. We season, cook, and finish with olive oil, coconut oil, and seldom grass-fed butter. No canola oil or BS canola/olive oil blends. We take stances on many other issues that will no doubt make you smile, but that answers your oil question. Swing by if you are ever in NYC.
