Clean, healthy, farm fresh eating has now been made easy with the opening of ‘Good Seed’ in Midtown Manhattan.

The menu here focuses on farm-to-table salads, grain bowls, and “picnic baskets” with ingredients sourced from local farms. Everything is made fresh with home-style recipes, which really are bursting with flavor, vibrancy and zest.
I had a hard time choosing from options such as “Greek Beet” made with organic spinach, romaine, raw yellow beets, baked falafel, cherry tomatoes, red onions, roasted red peppers, cucumber, crumbled feta, baked beet chips & red wine vinaigrette.
Or the Caribbean Bowl with black and wild rice, organic arugula, organic jerk chicken, avocado, fresh mango, cherry tomatoes, roasted plantain, shredded coconut & citrus vinaigrette.
This bright and gorgeous space serves as both a purveyor all things healthy, in addition to being a marketplace selling gourmet artisanal item from local farmers markets, artisans and small family businesses. As guests wait on line to order their food, one can browse through this selection of healthy snacks and gourmet goodies available for purchase.
Menu items at the ‘Good Seed’ can be taken to go or be enjoyed sitting at their modern reclaimed wooden tables. The chic setting offers a brief escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. What better “me” time could be spent than indulging in healthy, wholesome eats in a serene setting.
On Monday, March 20th, 2017, Good Seed will open its doors to the public and give away either a free salad, bowl or picnic basket to each customer throughout the day. Donations will be made to Edible Schoolyard NYC.
Here is some of what we ate:
