Took a detour from our original plans at Wallflower and ended up Nourish Kitchen + Table across the street.
Good choice on our part.
More takeout counter than actual restaurant (although there are a couple of seating options), the sweet potato noodles with lotus roots, roasted turnips and green onions was both refreshing and very satisfying, while the barley rice bowl with sesame crusted sweet potatoes, roasted cabbage, and a poached egg was like Korean bibimbap sans raw meat. Miso soup, while a bit thin and perhaps even aptly described as “watery,” still was quite savory and umami-laden.
Marble bundt cake and the chocolate (roasted) beet cake with goat cheese frosting was both worth the extra laps around Central Park the next morning.
