The Fat Radish

October 19, 2014


Yesterday, I had the best pancakes of my life. I had to share them with three persons, but luckily, these three are the ones who know me best in this world, so I got to eat the majority of them without anyone feeling cheated. Phew! They were Lemon Ricotta pancakes served with blueberry jam at The Fat Radish, and they were soft, not too doughy and so tasty.

As the name implies, fresh and seasonal vegetables are a big part of the farm-to-table menu at this place, but there’s something for everyone here. I have only visited The Fat Radish for brunch and the ‘all greens omelette’ with ricotta cheese is delicious. So are the crostini with smoked salmon and the potato cake with poached eggs!

You will find the restaurant on Orchard Street in Manhattan’s Chinatown – or is it called Lower East Side? I am not sure, but either way, this neighborhood is one of my favorite places to be in Lower Manhattan. Quieter and less crowded than some of the other areas (I’m thinking SoHo and Greenwich Village), but still so diverse and so much to do, see and eat.
