“Healthy Food that is also Delicious”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

Enjoyed dinner at Hu tonight. This is a busy and popular restaurant that serves high quality food with an emphasis on vegetables, though there are also a few meat, chicken and fish options. We opted for a plate of cold salads/sides from the deli case: I had the wonderful "organic primal kale salad" plus roasted asparagus, roasted squash salad, and a wild fish stick. Everything was fresh and tasty. The food is gluten free. We followed up with a concoction from the Mashbar - a mixture of banana cashew cream, chocolate chia pudding with various toppings. The restaurant has pleasing decor but be prepared for a crowded space, self service cafeteria-style, and limited seating at peak times. Also, prices are relatively high.

This is one of the quirkiest and possibly the best discovered restaurant on this trip. The food was amazing, fresh and incredibly tasty!

“After the newness wears off...”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Right now Hu Kitchen is all the rage because it's new and everyone wants to check it out. But...Yes here's comes the big but...The real question is, will regular New Yorkers still want to come here in a few years with the outrageous prices that they charge. I tried it for the first time recently with my friend, he likes it because it's organic. My personal opinion is that it's expensive.

“Delicious, healthy eats!”
Reviewed April 1, 2014

My fiance and I stumbled upon Hu Kitchen on our way from our hotel to the village and popped in for breakfast! It was amazing! So much to choose from, and everything was organic and fresh. I had a really good breakfast wrap with sweet potato hash and egg! So good! My fiance had a really yummy sausage breakfast sandwich. The cool thing about Hu Kitchen is it's healthy, but caters to all kinds - whether you're vegan, veg or you enjoy your meat - there's something for you! You feel good about eating it! Hu Kitchen was a great start to our morning! I want something like it where I live!
