Let’s face it: North Brooklyn restaurant menus are oversaturated with hearty, heavy, bready, cheesy and meaty comfort foods. Fried chicken sandwiches, burgers, mac n’ cheese, sausages, pizza and hot wings, among many others are all pretty dang delicious but it’s not really possible for most of us to eat them every single night. Especially in the warmer months, it’s nice to have a vegetable-forward yet hearty option for dinner. Enter the “Saladish” meal—a medley of textures and flavors with ingredients like, “Japanese eggplants, broccoli rabe, shirataki noodles, Bosc pears, and chrysanthemum leaves” wrapped into one extremely satisfying salad-like-but-not-a-salad dish.
Archestratus (160 Huron St) is hosting a dinner on April 13th inspired by Chef Ilene Rosen’s new cookbook Saladish. Tickets are $70, and get you a four-course meal from Chef Rosen, a signed copy of the cookbook and a limited edition tote. Menu at the link above and after the jump.
