|Zen Palate, Union Square|
Last weekend my husband was conducting a design workshop in New York City, so the kids and I came along so we could spend some time outside of our normal suburban environs. It was an unusually chilly day (I had to buy gloves!), so when we met him in Union Square, after he was done teaching for the day, we wanted to find a place to eat ASAP to get out of the cold. He remembered that there was a Zen Palate nearby so we headed over in a hurry.
We hesitantly walked in; the atmosphere was inviting and cozy and with tables oh so very close to one another (so close that we could not get away from over hearing a really awkward first date) spiking my mommy-anxiety, "This is totally not a place for kids!" However, my belly took precedent over my fears of a child uprising, and after looking at the menu, we decided to stay.

For my normally more adventurous daughter, we ordered her a veggie burger, which she didn't like and she didn't like the sweet potato fries. Crazy talk! Her brother ate all the sweet potato fries (which were nice and crispy) and we later had the mildly flavored, almost sweet, burger for dinner the next night. What did she eat? The veggies from her brother's plate and the spring rolls from our fixe prix dishes! Meal-swapping at its finest.
