We had the great pleasure of spending New Year’s Eve at the Flea Street Café, one of five wonderful restaurants founded by the gifted Jesse Ziff Cool. The atmosphere was casually elegant, the service was perfection, the jazz trio was excellent, Jesse couldn’t have been lovelier, and our five course meals—both created with local, sustainable and organic ingredients—were absolutely unsurpassed.
If you’ve made a New Year’s resolution to eat right and eat well, please allow us to recommend Jesse’s The Really, Truly, Honest-to-Goodness One-Pot Cookbook. We loved her Moroccan Chicken and Tunisian Lamb Stew recipes. And be sure to pre-order her upcoming, Simply Organic: A Cookbook for Sustainable, Seasonal, and Local Ingredients.
