Everyone knows that vegetables are an important part of a healthy diet, but at Beefsteak, a veggie-centric eatery near Residences on the Avenue, they're also beautifully prepared and presented with as much attention to aesthetics as a piece of art. Order a salad, for example, and you're likely to get a carefully arranged melange of bright green arugula, deep purple roasted beets, delicate white bean sprouts, and golden yellow heirloom tomatoes.
If you want total control over your meal, simply select the "build your own" option, and you can put together any combination of veggies, grains, and protein you like. For example, how about black beans over a quinoa base, topped with grilled chicken, avocado, and scallions? Or perhaps you'd prefer the subtle sweetness of dried cranberries, almonds, and cucumbers with a lemon honey dressing over bulgur and arugula.
Beefsteak is open 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
