HELLO AND HAPPY MONDAY!!

 

 

   

 

On an island full of fresh eats from Italian to Spanish cuisine and everything in between, how do you discern which restaurant is worthy of your time and money?

 

 

I don’t know about you, but whenever I hear the word dinner, the last placeI think of going is the Theater District. Think masses of people, bright lights, lots of fanny packs.. 

 

 

Its a New Yorkers Nightmare.. 

 

 

When selecting where to enjoy dinner we always have certain factors that weigh heavily on our choices.

 

 

 price point? portion size? atmosphere?

 

For many, its all of the above..

 

 

For some, its none of the above.. perhaps you look for establishments that cater to your taste buds while also utilizing sustainable practices?

 

 

Whether they are plant based or not, restaurants are beginning to embrace this concept of sustainability. Whether that be sourcing local ingredients or going that extra mile to grow their own ingredients on the premises..

 

 

 

Local-Fresh-Sustainable

 

Sustainable practices to me shows that  a company cares not only for the customer, but the impact that their food has on the environment.

 

 

I recently had the opportunity to experience Triomphe restaurant at the prestigious Iroquois hotel and was elated to discover that this establishment had gone in the direction of sustainability.

 

 

If you’re looking for a 4 star farm to table style restaurant that offers seasonal dishes, diversity in its menu, in addition to a beautiful intimate setting.. with AMAZING fresh rosemary bread with truffle butter (Sorry, I’m a bread person)

The simple design of Triomphe Restaurant belies its sophistication, an understated elegance that carries through from the first sip of wine to the final bite. Hailed as one of the premier NYC Theater District restaurants, Triomphe is a hidden gem, at once unpretentious, intimate and engaging.

One of Midtown’s elite dining destinations, Triomphe Restaurant at The Iroquois New York serves creative, seasonally-inspired dishes with a healthy twist. With three new SPE-certified dishes making their way on to the menu for the new season, we sat down with Executive Chef Florian Wehrli to find out more about his food philosophy…

 

 

Q: As a chef, what inspired you to make health a priority when preparing food for your customers?

Some people may disagree, but I truly believe that we first and foremost “eat to live” and not “live to eat.” Now, our jobs as chefs is to make the process as enjoyable as possible. As chefs, we should be an example to our customers and the public on food practices. Sourcing the best ingredients, grown locally and with practices that preserve the environment, as well as the health of our patrons, are all top priorities.

 

 

Q: How do you envision SPE Certified helping you achieve these health-focused objectives?

SPE gives us a chance to work with experts in both the nutrition and the culinary fields. I am a chef and I cook, so I may know a thing or two (or three…) about nutrition, but having someone whose main area of expertise is culinary nutrition, readily available to help with training, answer questions and offer tips and ideas is an amazing thing.

 

 

Q: Do you have a favorite (healthy) ingredient?

I am learning that most ingredients can be “healthy” when used appropriately and in the right quantity. Most things are good in moderation! My latest find is chia seeds. I love playing with them; their nutty flavor and cool thickening abilities are giving me some new ideas for savory and sweet applications.
