Food trends come and go, but the Mediterranean diet that has been around for millennia. MTerranean, owned by my friend Abdul Elanani, is a wonderful eatery at the Gansevoort Market in the Meatpacking District, offering takeout and a new eatery bar. The staples are largely plant based, with only a small portion of protein on a daily basis. Abdul offers his clients an incredibly fresh take on traditional dishes, including his glorious hummus (pictured), and the rich shwarma, falafel and kibbeh.

The wonderful Taste of Spring Craftstravaganza is setting up on the sidewalks of Chelsea! I am a proud sponsor of this event, and I can’t wait to see you there. This year, the market features wonderful handmade crafts and some of our favorite local foods, both sweet and savory! (11AM – 5:30PM on 17th Street beteeen 8th & 9th Avennues)

It’s going to be a beautiful weekend!
