New York City: Part 3

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on November 30, 2011

After resting our weary legs, the promise of another good meal and fun lured us out of our comfy bed!

We made reservations at the highly-praised Candle 79 for a pre-show meal before heading off to Radio City Hall.

Opened in 2003, Candle 79 is the upscale, elegant sister restaurant of the famous Candle Cafe. The restaurant features gourmet vegan, local, seasonal, and organic cuisine with an organic wine and sake bar. It has been rated twice as Zagat’s #1 vegetarian restaurant!

The atmosphere is elegant and cozy featuring two intimate floors for dining. I started with a glass of organic Cabernet Sauvignon from The Heller Estate in California- a bit fruity (blackberry and dark plum), vanilla oaky, and peppery according to the description. Eric tried the Chardonnay from Sherwood House Vineyard in New York, described as, “bursts of starfruit softened by ripe gala apple with undertones of fresh bread”. Delish.

Compliments of the chef, a beet salad while we waited for our appetizer.

For our appetizer, we shared the seasonal grilled artichoke, onion rings, white beans, and grilled vegetables in a red pepper sauce. This was outstanding and the flavours were spot on.

IMG_0169

It was Eric’s first time trying grilled artichokes and he really liked them…score! He tried to tell me it was his first time ever eating them period, but I had to remind him of the Vegan Artichoke Dip I made last year (that he devoured!). HIs reply, “Those were artichokes?” lol

For my main course, I ordered the Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Cake with seasonal vegetables, red coconut curry, date-apricot-ginger chutney, and toasted almonds.

IMG_0172

Oh my, this my friends, was absolute perfection! I was blown away by the combination of flavours. I had my doubts, but it really went together really well. Each bite had a bit of the lightly sweet and spicy date-apricot-ginger chutney, crispy fried chickpea cake, grilled vegetables and coconut curry sauce. A party in my mouth for sure. I would definitely like to try to re-create this at home sometime. Adding it to my list (I actually made a list).

Eric ordered the Spaghetti and Wheat Balls made with truffled tomato sauce, roasted garlic, spinach and cashew parmesan. He loved it and shared a bite with me. It was amazing. I would love to make cashew parmesan as I’ve only made sesame seed and nutritional yeast parmesan.

IMG_0171

And for the grand finale, we shared the mouth-watering Molten Chocolate Cake with Vanilla Sauce and Mole Ice Cream. This picture makes me drool thinking about it!

IMG_0175

I think the chocolate cake was covered in a coconut oil-based chocolate and vanilla glaze. It was just so silky, while not being too rich. We finished it with chocolate in the corner of our mouths like any respectable couple.

After lingering over another glass of wine, we hit up the subway to head to our show!

IMG_0178

The subway system has been really easy to navigate, but maybe that’s because we’ve had lots of practice in Toronto. The most difficult part is knowing where we’re going, which was made easier by the NYC Subway App on Eric’s phone! Otherwise, I’m sure we’d still be lost…

IMG_0276

We bought tickets for the Radio City Music Hall Rockettes Christmas show.

IMG_0555

We were pumped to get in the Christmas spirit!

IMG_0190

It was beautiful and sparkly inside. :)

IMG_0197

IMG_0198

The show was really cute and The Rockettes were flawless!

IMG_0213

Thanks to the wine I had with dinner (and early morning travel and walking all day), I started to get really sleepy by the end of the performance! I could barely keep my eyes open like the 80 year old grannie that I am. The show ended at 11pm, but it felt like it was about 3am. I kept joking to Eric that it was the time change (there was no time change). What can I say, I can party like the best of ‘em!

ZzzzzZZzzzzzzzZzzzzzzzzzz…………..dreaming of superplums, molten chocolate cake, and Nutcrackers.

I can’t believe you find the NYC subway system easy! I’m from NY and think it’s probably the most confusing one I’ve ever been in (on?)! Maybe I need to download that app!
So glad you got to see the Rockettes, it’s like a staple NYC Christmas thing :)

I just received the Candle 79 cookbook today and in it is the recipe for the Moroccan Spiced Chickpea Cakes. Perhaps you can add that cookbook to your Christmas wish list? Then again, you may just want to create your own recipe but having the original recipe would be a good starting point, no?

Reply

Angela (Oh She Glows) December 1, 2011 at 12:47 am

Oh that’s awesome! I meant to buy the cookbook but forgot. I will have to see if I can get it one of these days… :) Going on my xmas list!

Jeanine (The Blue Sash) December 1, 2011 at 5:20 pm

Just paged through the cookbook again and the artichoke appetizer you had as well as the spaghetti with wheat balls are also in there. When you get home, be sure to pull up the cookbook on amazon.com as a “hint” for Santa Eric. :-). These 3 recipes are in the brand new Candle 79 cookbook (as opposed to the Candle Cafe cookbook that was released a few years ago).

thanks for sharing the pictures of your trip and your Candle experience.

“It was Eric’s first time trying grilled artichokes and he really liked them” – and then his reply, THOSE were artichokes…in the dip. That is something my hubs would say. 100%

And the date-ginger-apricot chutney…right there, that’s worth the trip for me!

That chocolate dessert…I have heard from other bloggers who have eaten there that THAT is THE dessert to order and that it’s amazing!

Happy you guys are having a fabulous time :)

Hi Angela! have you noticed how any and every cafe in NYC seems to want to “one-up” other cafe’s on the streets when it comes to creativity and decor!!!?? It’s crazy how tourists have SO MUCH diversity from which to chose in NYC when, at the same time, the grocery shoppes, cafe’s and even stores and sites can get to feel a little “if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all” I have read your blog since May 2011 and actually SCHEDULE time to try and read from the beginning of your posts back in 2008 and this is my FIRST comment so i’ll try to chat more!

I’ve seen that restaurant on blogs before and it always makes me want to hop on the next plane to NYC to go eat there! I love the idea of an upscale vegan restaurant, since we definitely don’t have anything like that in Burlington. Do you know if there’s a similar restaurant in Toronto?

Oh my god!!!! I am so glad I read your post. I did part of my growing up in the burbs in New Jersey (before we moved to Colorado), and every year my mom would drive me and my sisters into the city to go see that show! We would have to stand in line forever outside in the cold. I still remember the smell of roasting chestnuts that the street vendors sold. My sisters and I would go into the NBC building across the street to warm up. And the show, especially the Rockettes were so magical at that time of the year! Especially when you’re a 10 year old girl (I wanted to grow up to be a Rockette, but alas I’m the clumsiest person I know). I just loved it, and I miss it, and it brings up so many wonderful feelings of Christmas for me. I’m so glad you got to experience it and blog about it – thanks for the memories! Ha! I also remember going to Macy’s and seeing their Christmas displays in the windows – all the moving dolls and everything! This was all back in the 70’s, but I’m sure it’s still the same!

Hi Angela!

I am Kyle and I am the beverage director of Candle 79. A friend of mine follows your blog and sent it to me last night. Thanks for the great post on our restaurant. We appreciate the love :)

I forwarded it to the owners, and I will also send it to the owners of Heller Estate and Sherwood House vineyards. They will like to see it as well.

Just a heads up, we do now have a full bar complete with organic spirits and fresh seasonal cocktails. We still have a sake-based cocktail on the menu, but as of October of last year, we have a full sustainable bar. We even have cocktails that help plant trees in Brazil! Check out the list… http://candle79.com/images/uploads/candle-79-cocktails.pdf

Join us again for more delicious food and perhaps an Eco-Cocktail.

Cheers!

Kyle

I wish I could make a trip this month, I love NYC in December! Hopefully next year!
It’s funny how people find different cities easier to navigate. I haven’t used the subway system in that many cities, but I find the ones in Washington DC and the London tube very easy to navigate, and I get so lost in NY.

What a great trip! Thanks for sharing. Is it tough sticking to a vegan diet while traveling? Do you find it tempting to experience non-vegan foods? I know my husband would go nuts if we went to vegan/veg restaurants nearly every meal especially in NYC. Does Eric really not mind?
Glad you had a safe and fun trip!

Hey Katie, Eric is actually a big fan of vegan cuisine….he always says how vegan food is just as good as non-vegan food so he doesnt mind it. We also went to quite a few non-vegan restaurants during our trip as well.
