Review:

Although this restaurant featured in the brilliant TV show Gossip Girl, I only went there by chance, to escape from a typical New York rainstorm. My conclusion was that I wish they had one of these in London, and next time I’m in New York I will make it my business to go here again.

It’s all about being clean and light; the food and drink is quite pricey but healthy and worth it. It’s good for a drink and snack or a bigger meal, with fresh juices, salads and vegetables aplenty.
