Nevaeh--something different in Pleasantville NY!
Finally, something different!
This is a brand-new prepared-food shop that just opened this weekend. It's in the spot that used to be the French bakery (in the Old Village, next to Michaels). They actually have a few tables indoors and will have a bunch out on the sidewalk when the weather gets warm again.
Anyway: the food. It's billed as "healthy global cuisine," 100% peanut free, with many gluten-free options. I was really happy to see all sorts of creative choices (barley "burgers," spicy Spanish pumpkin soup) as well as things like very good tabbouli. There were a dozen or more other options on Saturday, lots of vegetarian dishes but ahi tuna, chicken, and meat, too.
The owners are working hard and are obviously passionate about what they do. I wish them well. I'm just so happy to have a shop like this in the area.
I'll report back after I have a chance to try it again.
The food is good. Although I would try to avoid stuff that's on the menu and go for the case items. Inside is very cozy nice place to sit during the colder months. My only complaint is with the customers in there. The last time I went some housewife brought in her bratty little kids and couldn't seem to keep it under control. I wouldn't recommend bringing your little darlings there as it is a quiet peaceful place.
I've been back a couple of times now and continue to be hopeful. The food is mostly quite good--some is very good. I really like all the soups I've tried (Spanish pumpkin, tomato/lentil, etc) and many of the grain salads.
They do need to work on the service. They get distracted and don't always remember what you've ordered, but they're nice and they try hard. It just needs to be a bit tighter.
