Food and drink
Ronen and Seri use locally sourced ingredients. They fully support small producers and it shows in the freshness of the food. The wine list is heavy on organic selections (try the Laurent Miquel Nord Sud Syrah). Many of the craft beers are organic or from small breweries around the country.
The food fools you into thinking it has meat, eggs and cheese. I especially like the tofu with pesto and sweet corn and the soy bacon cheeseburger. The black eyed pea cake may seem odd for dessert but you have to try it; it's damn good.
The space has a convivial atmosphere, where the people next to you like to strike up conversation. It's very warm and welcoming and not high maintenance at all.
Pretty efficient and always with a smile. I've never had a bad experience here.
This part of 9th Avenue is a lot quieter than the stretch in the Meatpacking District. It almost feels off the beaten track.
It's about $80 for two for dinner.
The restaurant has a branch on the Upper West Side as well as a "fast food" option just down the street in Chelsea.
