The Organic Grill: A Quick, Healthy Solution for Eat in or Take Out

A homey spot for organic, vegetarian, American fusion dishes prepared in a healthy, yet tasty way.

When I’ve waited too long to eat, feel like I’m close to starvation and there is nothing fresh, healthy, organic or edible in my kitchen, my go-to choice for fast, organic food is Organic Grill on First Avenue in the East Village. I know that I can count on them for organic, mostly vegan, American fusion dishes that are prepared in a healthy, yet tasty way.

A quick survey of their online menu, then a few keystrokes on delivery.com and my order is easily placed. Within 30 minutes, a mini-feast is in my hands and my taste buds are in paradise.

Today’s Delicious Feast

• A  soul-satisfying Gluten-Free Pumpkin Sweet Potato and Black Bean Veggie Burger–The patty was topped with sweet potato and black bean spread, lettuce, tomato and sprouts, served with a choice of home fries, soup, or salad. I chose the salad with a Hemp Vinegairette Dressing.
