For those bogged down by the toxicity of urban dwelling, Herban Kitchen offers an oasis of wellness without the loser ambience and dippy wait staff found at most natural restaurants. Set on a lost stretch of Hudson Street, the candlelit restaurant – why waste precious kilowatts? – offers entrées that are far tastier than they sound, like burgers of farm-raised, grass-fed beef and un-fried free-range chicken, as well as an extensive menu of organic wines and beers. The meals can be prepared to specification – no gluten? No problem! – pleasing both food-allergy sufferers and their less-health-conscious dinner partners.
