Herb & Eatery Restaurant Review:

This casual, airy walk-up spot in bustling Little Italy fronts chef Brian Malarkey's Herb & Wood. Start the day with executive pastry chef Adrian Mendoza’s fresh croissants laced with chocolate and a frothy cappuccino, or go for protein with the baked eggs with potato, mushrooms, Humboldt goat cheese, kale and crème fraîche. For lunch, one of the massive salads tucks poke and avocado into artisan mixed greens. Heartier entrées include gourmet four-cheese mac ‘n’ cheese, eggplant Parmesan, and lightly breaded chicken with lemon buttermilk sauce served with a tomato, cucumber and onion side salad. Save room for dessert, such as an ice cream sandwich with blueberry cheesecake gelato between lime sugar cookies. Cold brews and kombucha spill from the tap. Order a Bloody Mary or crisp rosé to enhance the experience.
