HanGawi Restaurant Review:

Talk about an exotic New York experience: Slip off your shoes and step into this serene, Zen-like setting, where simply and beautifully prepared vegetarian cuisine is served. Some ingredients and recipes are based on the temple food of Buddhist monks. The prix-fixe tasting menu will lead you down a magical path. Offerings change every month, but you might encounter a platter of stuffed persimmon, stuffed lotus and mini pancakes, followed by sautéed maitake mushrooms with spinach and multigrain rice. Organic and gluten-free menus are also available. Though not all that filling, even die-hard carnivores have been known to rave about a meal here. Complement the fare with tea, beer, wine or saké.
