Hi All --
Sorry for the not-well-defined question. I'm looking for a restaurant that serves primarily organic/sustainable/ethically-raised food. I'm looking for a place that's NOT vegetarian. Price range: economical. Blue Hill and Rouge Tomate are out. I'm figuring an app and two entrees shouldn't exceed $50, without drink, tax, tip.
Neighborhoods: Really, anything along the E/V lines... so, midtown west, chelsea, west village, east village, LES.
I couldn't find any places by searching chowhound or other internet sites that billed themselves this way.
You should be able to get close to the $50 at Green Table but it might go a little higher. If you like to cook, you can make a great meal with responsibly raised meats at home for well below $50 (though that might not be what you're looking for).
There is also a place on Second Avenue near St. Marks that sources all of its meats from NY farms and makes an amazingly good lamb burger but I can't remember the name. Sorry! Maybe others can help out?
