The cuisine at the Fat Radish is classified by a philosophy: Simple, healthy, delicious dishes created with well-sourced, seasonal ingredients. Located on the Lower East Side, the roomy space echoes that of London’s original Covent Garden marketplace – high ceilings with large windows, skylights and plenty of natural light juxtaposed with white-washed, exposed brick walls. Dishes like the honey-glazed duck, celery root pot pie and monkfish vindaloo are where the Radish blooms in complexity and color, and the wine list is filled with biodynamic beauties.
I wrote about these guys for the Times when they curated the food at the Escape From New York Festival...everything they do is super fresh and seasonal. Personally I enjoy going to brunch there, eating soft-boiled eggs with avocado toast whilst reading the Economist alone at the bar. Usually I leave my sunglasses on. The bartender knows my name.
