I was never the biggest fan of the green drinks that became the fad a couple years ago. My main issue with them is having to pay at least $10 to feel like I am drinking freshly cut grass. I’ve slowly worked my way into a different mindset and taught myself to enjoy them by experimenting with my own concoctions at home (some good and some not so much).
There was a lot of buzz about a charming new Indian restaurant Babu Ji in the East Village and I knew we had to check it out. After scoping out their website we considered booking a table online, but you can only do this to sample the tasting menu. Unfortunately not every dish offered is GF, so we walked in early and hopeful.
