Hey NYC, Clean Your Plate

You can literally eat your way through the neighborhoods of NYC.  On just the small island of Manhattan alone, we are blessed with a variety of cuisines and price points on every block, but when it comes down to it, New Yorkers are not exactly known for their ‘home cooking.’ Fortunately they don’t have to be. Now, tastiness doesn’t have to come with a guilt-ridden calorie count, and with current obesity (and vanity) levels rising, even New Yorkers, the very ambulatory society, are still looking for healthier options that don’t require a cooking class to attain.

[enter: Clean Plates NYC]

The lovechild of Jared Koch (nutiritionist and wellness counselor) and Alex Van Buren (food critic), Clean Plates NYC showcases the healthiest, tastiest and most sustainable restaurants in Manhattan, with 75 reviews and a list of 200+ places to satiate your palette.
