FALL MENU BRINGS SEASONAL BLISS AT BLACKBARN CAFÉ + BAR
| New York, NY - November 05, 2018 | BLACKBARN Café & Bar at Chelsea Market has added delicious and fresh seasonal options to its lunch and dinner menus. After debuting a mindful food concept this summer with an abundance of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free choices that don’t sacrifice on flavor, the menus continue to be wellness-focused and open to a variety of lifestyles. Chef Doherty, a master of sourcing top-notch ingredients at every time of year, created a plethora of deceptively rich and decadent dishes for the Fall that are guilt-free pleasures.
Lunch additions include a meat and gluten-free Portobello Stack appetizer that resembles a burger with two marinated and grilled portobello “buns” on either side of a pan-seared polenta cake and crispy kale and frisée; a vegan Pomegranate Quinoa Bowl entree, which utilizes sweet and juicy apples from picking season, fennel, and green beans over a bed of red quinoa, finished with a tangy pomegranate dressing, shaved almonds, and tart gooseberries; and a Butternut Squash and Kale Salad entree served with fresh buffalo mozzarella, baby kale, radicchio, and savory toasted pepitas.
The dinner menu now features delicious vegetable-based dishes in an appetizer and entree portion such as a Roasted Cauliflower dish with caramelized red onion, spanish olive, crispy caper and basil and Pan Roasted Artichoke Hearts complemented by savory hen of the wood mushrooms, eggplant hummus, and a refreshing tahini-lemon dressing. A plant-based Foraged Mushroom Mac’n’Cheese made from fresh pasta dough that is filled with butternut squash mixed with ground amaretto cookies, Parmigiano cheese, and nutmeg, joins the signature BLACKBARN Burger on the entree menu. The juicy favorite features a Certified Angus beef patty seasoned with salt and pepper, topped with thick cut, smoked applewood bacon, manchego cheese, tomato confit, bibb lettuce, and caramelized onions, and served on a potato bun.
The BLACKBARN lifestyle brand represents a blend of industrial, artful, refined, and understated sensibilities. It redefines luxury, from creating bespoke homes for those who desire unconventional simplicity to combining farm vernacular with elegant style in a carefully curated group of objects. The brand’s ethos and aesthetic come to life in a DUMBO, Brooklyn shop, filled with hand-selected furniture and homeware pieces, custom-designed and sourced from around the world; it takes an additional dimension at New York City’s BLACKBARN Restaurant where seasonal, rustic fare meets a modern farmhouse atmosphere.
The most recent development, BLACKBARN Chelsea Market shop, café & bar, changes the way New Yorkers dine and shop for home goods by uniting hospitality and retail, in a homewares and accessories shop with a café & bar, to create the total brand experience.
The storied system behind the brand is perhaps best captured in the book, BLACKBARN, published by ORO Editions in 2015.
