Located at the Upper East Side of Manhattan, Le Botaniste is a Plant-based Organic Food and Natural Wine bar! They are originally from Belgium and have opened their first store in NYC this past February.
This new concept restaurant was created by Le Pain Quotidien's Founder & Chief Creative Officer, Alain Coumont and will surely grow! His awareness of how we all need to take care of our bodies and consequently take care of the planet, drives his passion and this healthy entrepreneurial spirit that we love.
We tried a few different dishes which were delicious: the “Tibetan Mama” Rice Bowl with brown rice packed with coconut peanut curry and greens, the “make your own salad” with greens, seaweed tartare, marinated carrots, onions; and a last dish of Quinoa Chili with sour cream.
We didn't forget the dessert, of course! We had the Coconut Chia Seed Pudding and the Key Lime Pie.
Oh! We also ordered their house-made juices (the lemonade, and two detox), which were amazingly refreshing.
They are opened from 11am - 9pm.
Location: 833 Lexington Avenue (btw 63rd & 64th)
