Can­dle 79 RES­TAU­RANT

New york city, ny

Upscale Living Magazine - - Culinary -

Here it’s all about the “green” phi­los­o­phy. Add pas­sion, sus­tain­abil­ity and the be­lief that eat­ing plant-based food is the sim­plest way to cre­ate a more bal­anced and sus­tain­able world and you have Can­dle 79.

All three lo­ca­tions fea­ture true to sea­son fresh fruit, pro­duce, herbs and other nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents ex­pressed art­fully and with thought.

Try some of their menu choices such as the hy­dro gar­den farm edamame with Celtic sea salt, chili and lemon, or the steamed or fried dumplings dressed with sei­tan, broc­coli, toasted cashews and sesameg­in­ger soy sauce. They are ab­so­lute masters at choos­ing main­stream com­fort food and giv­ing it a new-fan­gled green flare such as the BLT sand­wich, tem­peh ba­con, let­tuce, tomato, av­o­cado, cayenne aioli and potato fries. For a real treat, try the Can­dle 79 Mar­ket­place where you choose four of the fol­low­ing: gin­gered brown rice, chipo­tle black beans, chipo­tle grilled tem­peh, quinoa pi­laf sautéed greens, grilled as­para­gus, grilled oys­ter mush­rooms, po­lenta fries, gin­ger miso-grilled tofu sautéed broc­coli and cau­li­flower, string beans and al­monds, corn­meal-crusted zuc­chini served with a choice of two sauces to ac­com­pany: Jalapeño-av­o­cado, lemon-gar­lic tahini, chive, miso-lemon­grass, Cae­sar or live jalapeño.
