Dinner at WastEDny

So glad I got to experience WastEDny tonight. I didn't have a reservation and I went early hoping that I could dine at the bar. There were no seats but I lucked out because there was one available table and the gracious manager let me sit there. #Wastednyc is a pop up restaurant at Blue Hill by Chef Dan Barber where everything on the menu is made from edible things that most people would throw away. For example, the veggie burger is made from leftover veggie pulp from Liquiteria. Everything on the menu regardless of size or ingredients is $15 and the purpose of the restaurant is to change how we think of food and to show that food that might be considered waste can be transformed into something delicious. This was the most thoughtful and inspiring meal I have had. WastEDnyc runs until 3/31.
