Healthy in Midtown

Any recommendations for healthy/organic/raw eating in Midtown? Sort of in the same vain as the restaurant Pure (near Union Square). Preferably a nicer sit-down restaurant where you can chat for a while.

      1. ORganic Harvest- they changed their name recently but they are at 235 E 53st. near 3rd. Decent sandwiches good veggie chili, and salads, also some interpretations of Indian and Asian dishes. Also some macrobiotic options. Their stuff is pretty fresh and I believe, they use organic ingrdients for most dishes.

        There is also a deli on second street in the mid forties (west side of street) that had organic goroceries and an organic salad and hot food bar. They had limited selections but they were quite tasty. I haven't been in a few years since I changed jobs.

        Westerly foods on 8th ave and 54th has a good selection of homemade organic soups - generally vegetarian. They are very tasty. Also, they have a good selection of sandwiches in the deli case.

        1. Josie's on 3 Ave., around 38 St. Go for the inventive food. I was unimpressed with the turkey-cranberry wrap (I could have gotten it at any deli), but the seared tofu salad and the Yukon potato dumplings were very good. I think it's a bit pricey though.
