Time Out NY Get your sprouted seeds and nuts at a serene, little raw-food joint, and join celebs like Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler (and models picking up their takeout). The menu skips around the globe, from Mediterranean nachos with spicy hummus and guacamole to Indian malai kofta, balls of sprouted chickpeas in creamy almond-curry sauce. The daily ravioli (sliced turnips stand in for pasta) might be filled with faux sausage and spinach one day, mushrooms and walnuts the next. Dessert continues the live-food vibe, but they can be a little too virtuous.
