Hu Kitchen

February 13, 2016

I owe my sister Caroline for this amazing find called Hu Kitchen near Union Square in New York City.  This is the first restaurant of its kind I have seen as far as its unique format and philosophy.  It is a marketplace offering several stations (a bar offering  smoothies, juices, coffee, and fresh baked goods, one serving warm bowls and sides, one serving more pre-made sides, and a section offering grab-and-go options).  There is seating at the bar, as well…
