New York: Zoe

05-May-2007
 
 
 
 
 
I stumbled across Zoë restaurant in the SoHo area of Manhattan several years ago and since that time I nearly always try to stop in for a glass of wine and maybe a pizza or salad when I’m in New York.  The first time I visited it qualified as a fashionable location.  Over the years it’s become a little dated but I still love the warmth of the place. 
 
I often find myself eating at rather odd times when in New York – my west coast stomach hasn’t learned how to tell east coast time.  Popping into Zoe in that lull between lunch and dinner when the place is on the quiet side and the staff more relaxed has always provided a brief respite from my quest to see and do as much of New York as possible. 
 
While maybe not as fashionable as it once was Zoe still turns out great food.  I especially love the wood roasted items,  their homemade soups and creative salads.  I guess that covers quite a lot of the menu.  And I’d say many people agree with me as trying to get seated during normal meal times is always a challenge.  The place seems especially popular for weekend brunches. 
 
During one visit as I was sitting at the bar looking back at the open kitchen I suddenly realized there was a familiar face in the kitchen.  Tim Kelley, former chef at The Painted Table (now closed) was working away.  It was fun to see him. 
 
On this last visit M and I split a pizza, topped with seasonal mushrooms, greens, pine nuts and lemon zest – so very good; and the flat iron steak salad.  The steak was succulent, the salad refreshing and it was served in a really cool fried potato bowl! 
 
This is a great place for a relaxing meal.  When in SoHo, check it out.
