It flies under the radar, but every
time I come I’m blown away
New York City: the best, the brightest, and for some, the
most daunting. It’s hard to find anything in short supply
in the city that never sleeps, least of all restaurants to
eat at. Lucky for us, Amanda Cohen, owner and chef of
Dirt Candy and former contestant on Iron Chef America,
was willing to share her favourite haunts with us at
Terroir, and you! Amanda originally hails from Canada,
but since moving south, has carved out a name and
following for herself in the vegetarian food scene of New
York. Dirt Candy is the first vegetarian restaurant in 17
years to earn two stars from the New York Times, and
has been recognized by the Michelin Guide five years in
a row. She shares her thoughts about tipping, restaurant
relations, and the changing food scene in funny and
fabulous articles called Dispatches From Dirt Candy,
and published the world’s first graphic novel cookbook;
Dirt Candy: A Cookbook. Check out Dirt Candy’s new
bigger, brighter, more mind-bending location at 86 Allen
Street, New York, NY. (212) 228 – 7732.
