Vegetarian Dish Recommendation

Weekly Dish Recommendation: Vegetarian at Red Rooster

For this week’s dish recommendation, I’m recommending an entire vegetarian meal at Red Rooster Harlem. It’s easy to have a delicious meat-free meal at the restaurant, and for those of you who abstain from meat, I have crafted a custom meal from our offerings.

Start with the Pickled Beet and Hazelnut Salad.  Leaves of spicy arugula are topped with pickled beets, Manchego and hazelnuts.  You could also split the Nuts snack, which would contribute a delicious salty-sweet balance to the meal.

Follow with the Mac and Greens entree.  Baked in our wood-fired oven, this collard green-studded mac and cheese combines three cheeses: Gouda, New York State Cheddar, and Comte.  It’s a multicultural dish, with cheese from Holland, France, and the States!

Of course, you can’t go wrong with a side of Cornbread with honey butter and tomato jam.  The sweetness from the honey ushers in the last course, which is not to be missed!

All our desserts are vegetarian, and you can’t go wrong, but I recommend the Sweet Potato Doughnuts or the Roasted Apple Pie.

Happy Eating!
