Although rapidly growing, the pickings for a healthy lunch spot in the Financial District in NYC are quite slim. In enters the relatively new kid on the block: My Belly’s Playlist.
Started in 2012, this underground kitchen serves up creative food that certainly matches its clever name. Although I have only tried a few select items, each time I order delivery, the dishes arrive fresh, beautifully presented and delicious (and this is just based on delivery). I would suggest browsing their Top 10 List of their best items – which has some interesting items I myself have yet to explore. That being said, my top favorite that I wanted to highlight was:
This is perfect for vegetarians. It is described as a seared then baked “quinoa, carrot and zucchini burger, bound by cheddar and ricotta.” The burger is served “next to a romaine chop salad of oregano roasted zucchini, organic chickpeas, diced cucumber, sweet corn off the cob, and frisee.” Yum.
And if that doesn’t get you – maybe the baked cookie they give as an accompaniment to almost every meal will. Because at the end of the day, if you give me a cookie, I will love you.
