Privy 5 Overview

Share |

First there was Candle 79, then came Candle Café, so this is the larger than life, double-level version of the café. It is feng shui tuned so there is no indigestion for patrons, and as the cuisine is vegetarian/vegan you get to eat great food completely conscience-free. The décor and design is elegant and low-key, the menus shift with the seasons, and the clientele are Upper East Side attractive. The arugula salad is outstanding and comes served with toasted pine nuts, hearts of palm, and a rosemary balsamic dressing, but just because it is healthy, does not mean it has to be salad. At Candle 79 they serve a paella with smoked seitan sausage, which could not taste more like pepperoni sausage if it tried. Grab a Paratha bread and hummus and make for the bar to sample an outstanding selection of organic wines.
