Privy 5 Overview

Eclectic cuisine and green friendly, the City Bakery did not sell a single piece of chicken for its first ten years of business. Meat today, still only features as 2% of their lunch business. Maury Rubin does not believe in the downright depressing salad bars which fill this city however. The signature hot chocolate is decadent and food fare is seasonally effortless; inspired by Mother Nature. He believes in, and practices energy conservation and serving meat responsibly, he also believes in "hot chocolate" – there are ten different flavors, served hot or cold during his winter hot chocolate festival. They have won many awards, but the one which interests me the most is the "Best Do-it-Yourself Dessert". This NYC hot spot is a true original and a demonstration to the delights of desserts.
