Eco Table Opens Tomorrow!

After visiting Il Bambino this evening, Meg and I spied that the about-to-open Eco Table restaurant on 31st Avenue and 33rd Street is literally about to open its doors.  The specific timing of its launch is tomorrow at 1 p.m. so if you're around, swing by for a quick bite and see what you think.  Their philosophy uses popular trigger words such as local, artisanal, fresh, healthy, which sounds promising so let's hope they deliver.

In terms of the interior decor, we peeked in and it looked nice - simple with earthy tones (greens and browns) and a really pretty wodden floor that looks ever so eco-chic.

Here's a sampling of what you can expect from the menu:
