Good Seed, now open at 213 W. 35th St. in Midtown West, describes itself as “a new healthy eatery with a side of indulgence,” with a menu of grain bowls, hearty salads and entrees with a choice of hot and cold side dishes.
Think chimichurri steak with smoked bacon and roasted crimini mushrooms over greens, or the Thai Dai (ha!) salad of grilled shrimp, red cabbage, daikon radish, mango and more with a sesame peanut dressing. The grain bowls use quinoa, freekeh and rice, or make your own with tons of options for bases, proteins and add-ons.
It sounds like exactly like the kind of hearty-healthy food we’ll need in these coming weeks of transitional weather, but you don’t have to take their word for it. The restaurant is offering its grain bowls and salads (normally $8.50-$12.50) for free to every customer who walks in on Monday, March 27 from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.
If you can spare some scratch on the 27th, Good Seed is accepting donations to Edible Schoolyard NYC, which brings cooking and gardening education into public schools. The restaurant will also match all funds raised.
