Spotted NYC / Lower East Side / The Fat Radish


After days of indulgent eating and events in NYC, I was seeking a comfy space to hole up in for an easy, healthy and not-too-pricey meal. And so I discovered The Fat Radish. Located in the Lower East Side/Chinatown neighborhood, it was the perfect escape away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city. The space is warm, rustic and inviting, while the dishes are simple, delicious and prepared using seasonal ingredients sourced from many of the nearby local farms. Even as I sit here in San Francisco writing this, I still crave that yummy kale, bacon and poached egg caesar salad I had there.

They also have a new oyster bar called The Leadbelly across the way. I hope to stop in and check that out when I’m back in July.
