redfarm nyc

while power has been restored to lower manhattan, many are still suffering in the outer boroughs, parts of new jersey, and long island. it seems apathetic to move forward with a "blogging as usual" attitude, but it also feels like the right thing to do. for the rest of the week i'll include a hurricane sandy donation link at the bottom of every post, as well as any neighborhood volunteer opportunities that arise. onward and upward east coast.

redfarm on hudson street has completely changed my outlook on greasy chinese food with their fresh ingredients and farm to table approach.

dinner is served on two rustic farm tables with a get to know your neighbor type of attitude. between their no reservation policy, intimate dining space, and delicious menu, scoring a table isn't always easy. i'm the loser who asks for a fork while everyone else is chopsticking away. i apologize for not being able to eat fried rice with two miniature sticks.

if you ask nicely, the chef will happily pan fry your vegetable chive dumplings while waiting on your soft and crunchy vegetable fried rice. for meat eaters, try the pac-man shrimp dumplings (shaped like pac-man of course) and pastrami egg roll.

that being said, a lot of small businesses downtown have suffered from the storm and could use your support. eat dinner downtown! tip heavily!

donations for the hurricane sandy relief are being accepted by the red cross as well as the mayor's fund.

the jewish community center on 76th and amsterdam is accepting donations in their lobby today from 5:30am-10pm. the following essentials are needed: non-perishable food, blankets, batteries, flashlights, diapers and wipes, jackets and clothing for children and adults. all donations are being delivered to a distribution site in staten island, an area that was hard hit by the storm. thanks to my upper west for the tip.

Farm to table Chinese food? What a brilliant new idea! Trust downtown NYC to lead the charge... and in the middle of a hurricane, too!

I love farm table dining!

Seriously, rice must be sticky to eat it with chopsticks–anyone who says otherwise is a wizard.

I've been wanting to go there for the longest time. You just made it so much worse ... in a good way.
