This venue is closed.

In these uncertain agricultural times, people question where their food comes from, and Louis Lanza, chef-owner of both Josie's on the Upper West Side and its Murray Hill outpost, is full of reassuring answers, most of them printed right on the menu. The sleek design shatters every health-food-restaurant cliche. Most appetizers and main dishes are dairy free but not necessarily meat free, so vegans can enjoy a veggie "meatloaf " while meat eaters wolf down a natural, free-range rotisserie chicken. A veggie burger or organic beef burger is served on its own; a mixed-eating-habit couple can put together a nice, inexpensive meal by ordering one burger each and splitting an order of steamed dumplings in a creamy red pepper coulis or a side of mashed sweet potatoes with cranberries. Follow up with a triple chocolate mousse torte, which may not be good for you but is wickedly good.
