My New Favorite Restaurant: OZU
Sorry for the lack of posts, since my move to NYC things have been hectic, to put it mildly. Anyway, I am back and excited to share some super awesome eco info with you, and I am starting with my new favorite restaurant. I am gonna go all out and say that I think this is the BEST RESTAURANT in NYC! No, really.
So, you may have heard of it, especially the macros out there, but I think it is still worth talking about. Ozu Restaurant is macrobiotic, kosher and just plain awesome. Their menu has a wide selection os tastly and well balanced fare. My favorite thing to order right now, that is great for the summer season and oh-so-relaxing after a stressful week of work is the ZARU SOBA GOMOKU, which is cold soba topped with tofu, fried tempeh, cucumbers, bean sprouts, louts root, shiitake, and kombu, served with dumpling sauce on the side. It is awesome.
Also, I am a big fan of desserts, especially kanten- and Ozu's fruit kanten is by far the best I have had in NYC restaurants.
Along with delicious and well-balanced food, they also provide excellent customer service. Ozu's servers are very friendly, helpful and will tell you what they like best on the menu if you ask. All in all, I recommend this place to anyone who likes fresh, healthy, balanced meals, a clean, cozy atmosphere and friendly, good service. Check them out online and check them out in person!
