We were looking for a brunch place near Union Square, when we stumbled upon Bowery Road, an American restaurant located in the Hyatt, where Chef Ron Rosselli serves farm-to-table dishes composed with products sourced at the Union Square Green Market close by. I like that the place is quite spacious with very high ceilings and the omnipresence of wood underlying the theme of the restaurant.
We started our meal by sharing their crushed avocado, served with a tomato chutney and a corn seed cracker. This is one of the 4 dips or spreads they are proposing, each having a unique bread. The presentation was really nice, colorful with the contrast of the green from the avocado and the red of the tomato chutney. The dish was delicious: there were chunks of avocado that were perfectly ripe and was, with the chutney, like a Middle Eastern version of guacamole. It was delicious on the cracker that was really surprising, quite flavorful and crunchy.
For her main entree, Jodi ordered the USQ Market Grain Bowl, composed of egg (she asked without), faro, quinoa, lentils, haricot verts, avocado, mushrooms and sunflower.
On my side, I could not resist trying their chicken two-ways, that was a fried thigh, roasted breast, sweet potato, herb yogurt and anaheim chili salsa. The chicken was succulent: each piece, whether fried or roasted, were perfectly cooked and moist. I liked the chili salsa, but admit that the chicken was so good, it did not need anything.
The food was really good and I love their farm-to-table concept. Bowery Road is the kind of restaurant in hotel that is worth trying and I would definitely go back for dinner there.
Enjoy (I did)!
