Dining Out Doesn’t Have to be Unhealthy
When it comes to eating well, it’s important to make smart choices. And those choices start with healthy ingredients. Here are some of the nutritious options you’ll find on the menus at The Restaurant and Bar Collection.
Porter House Bar and Grill might be known for its indulgent steaks, but there are wholesome selections on the menu, too, like salmon from the Faroe Islands, which is known throughout the world as having the highest quality Atlantic salmon. It’s naturally rich in omega 3 fatty acids that help prevent heart disease, stroke, and other issues. Chef and Managing Partner Michael Lomonaco keeps it simple with spring vegetables, basil nage, and trout roe. “We let the quality of the fish speak for itself.”
One of the standouts on the menu at Bouchon Bakery is the restaurant’s signature San Marzano Tomato Soup. It’s made from Italy’s best tomatoes, which are grown in rich volcanic soil near Mount Vesuvius and are high in antioxidants and vitamins that fight cancer, maintain strong bones, and make your hair and skin look great.
Chef Marc Murphy makes sure you and your entire family are eating well at Landmarc, and one ingredient that shows up in several dishes is Mediterranean farro, an ancient grain that is high in nutrients and gluten-free. You’ll find it in the poached eggs dish (“It’s delicious and healthy but really keeps you satisfied all day,” says Murphy). It’s also served with the lemon & herb grilled chicken breast on Landmarc’s nutritious kids’ menu. It’s no wonder Open Table named Landmarc one of the most kid-friendly restaurants in New York City.
At Bar Masa, it’s challenging to find anything that’s bad for you, as Chef Masa Takayama creates seasonal menus where nearly all the dishes are based around raw fish. One standout: the Surimi Pasta. These noodles are made from seafood and 100 percent gluten free. With food like this, you’ll never want to eat at home again.
