On a block-long strip packed with forgettable restaurants, Organic Harvest Café is an exemplar of the city’s healthy best. Everything at the tiny, 500-square-foot café is organic and vegan, except for the chicken and fish dishes, which are simply organic and tasty. The ten-chair space, run by Mark Mager, a veteran of the chef’s training program at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health & Culinary Arts, does a booming delivery and take-out business. Grains and greens, like millet and sweet potato polenta and a three-seaweed salad served with mesclun and mango slices, start out the menu, followed by a bevy of wraps and sandwiches, and a dozen inventive, ethnically inflected entrees. Contrary to what many expect from healthy food, most dishes tend toward the boldly flavored: The juicy Portobello steak sandwich grabs additional flavor from roasted red peppers and vegan wasabi mayo; the grilled wild salmon sandwich is a thick, supremely fresh wedge of peach-colored fish; and the tuna salad is the real thing, fresh and zestily strong. The café also offers a mother lode of fresh-squeezed fruit juices, smoothies, and nutritional shakes.


Sugar-free, fresh-squeezed fruit juices, smoothies, and shakes make the café a hub for juice aficionados, who go nuts for the All Green (celery, cucumber, parsley, kale, and collards) and the Almond Joy Protein Booster (almond butter, banana, and rice milk).
