Well, we’re not vegetarians, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be every once in a while right?! We’ve found a new gem nestled in the East Village called Divya’s Kitchen. First, we must commend the interior designer, because who doesn’t love white-washed walls, copper lamps, and plants aplenty. Very calming. Even the music felt Zen. We sat down, took a deep breath, and began to forget our daily woes. I ordered a DELICIOUS mint ginger limeade. I highly recommend it, even if you’re just cruising by and need a refreshing healthy beverage.
Along with our blogger friend Christian Blanchet, we ordered a medley of small bites, sides, and mains. We enjoyed the focaccia with basil parsley pesto, roasted sweet potatoes, avocado dip, roasted seasonal vegetables, and lasagna. Our two favorites were the roasted seasonal veggies and the lasagna! After an incredibly healthy and tasty meal, it’s almost impossible not to feel relaxed and rejuvenated. It was a total pleasure to meet Divya herself, who is all smiles.
