Profile

In April 2012, Forager’s City Table opened as an annex to the gourmet grocery store in Chelsea, Forager’s City Grocer. Not all of the ingredients are foraged, of course, but the company maintains a market garden in Hudson Valley where the team grows vegetables and raises hens. As a result, the food is clean, market-driven, and extremely fresh. The deviled “Forager’s Farm” eggs are proof of this: Can you really tell the difference? It turns out that you can: The eggs are soft and pillowlike and accented by Dijon mustard and sherry vinegar. A good move is to order whichever salad’s in season: In the summer, that means you’ll get to try nine different types of tomatoes with a light, nut-free basil pesto. Other menu items sound pretty amorphous, but have faith: “Spring Harvest” means a compilation of toasted quinoa, wilted greens, wild mushrooms, radishes, and heirloom vegetables that come together nicely, even if a few of the vegetables (like the asparagus) are overcooked. Roasted chicken with Hudson Valley polenta and pasture-raised pork are great options for those who stick to sustainable meat. The simple décor and quiet ambiance makes the restaurant feel better suited for a quiet weeknight meal than for a lively Saturday night date—especially when you have a view of the grocery store from your table. Skip dessert and head next door to take some of the grocer’s goodies (like the Good Batch cookies and S’more Bakery’s marshmallows) home to enjoy for days to come.

The chef's tasting menu is $38 for three courses.
