If you are seeking enlightenment a serene atmosphere and a Korean, temple-styled, traditional tea room in the middle of New York, you aren't looking for a needle in a haystack; sample Franchia. Principally this is a vegetarian restaurant which makes use of green tea in virtually every meal, including thank goodness, the meditative high tea ceremony. Franchia offers a Korean high tea ceremony, rice dish revelations, a tofu steak that tastes like meat and a Zen experience par excellence. Flavors are distinct, vegetables fresh and crisp, authentic Asian vegetarian "duck" salad and great vegan dishes complete the picture and you are assured of a meditative meal.You will fall in love with the house "wild green tea" so take some home, this brew, like everything else, including Zen poetry inscribed tea cups, is for sale.  Traditional Korean, and very gracious service is part of their charm.
