Clean Plates Brooklyn dining guide (finally) launches


Clean Plates Brooklyn healthy dining guideJared Koch wants to be the Sam Sifton for people who care about saturated fats.

When the nutritionist-dining critic first came on the scene in spring 2009, it was with Clean Plates NYC. His popular dining guide was colloquially called the “Zagat of healthy New Yorkers.”

While it featured culinary landmarks like Pure Food & Wine, Rouge Tomate, and even Chipotle, somehow Koch forgot all about Brooklyn, and pioneering establishments like Franny’s and the Farm on Adderley.

Koch has finally righted that wrong with the first edition of Clean Plates Brooklyn 2012.

The healthy Brooklyn dining guide will launch in next month, on the heels of an update of Clean Plates Manhattan, which is due out of the kitchen any minute now.

“Brooklyn was an obvious extension,” admits Koch, whose resources have grown significantly since his scrappy first edition. “There are so many great restaurants with a progressive movement, where people are conscious and concerned about local ingredients.” (We can name about 40. )

Some of Koch’s recommendations from Clean Plates Brooklyn? Sun in Bloom, a Park Slope raw food and juice cafe, and branches of the Meatball Shop, Aurora, and Bare Burger.

We’re expecting to see stalwarts like Franny’s and Farm on Adderly included, too. But until the book drops, the dining reviewer is keeping his mouth shut. —Melisse Gelula and Monica Rozenfeld
