Welcome Spring! New beginnings abound!

Welcome Spring!

     Spring is the time of rebirth.  It’s when the snows melt, the crocus poke out, and the song birds return from their southern adventures.  Here at Elizabeth’s Neighborhood Table we are experiencing great change as well.  After a year of being under a construction shed, our Urban Farmhouse has finally emerged like a butterfly, taking its rightful place as an UWS landmark.  Finally our humble little home is on full view, and finally our porch and swing can take advantage of the great weather which is right around the corner.  Outdoor dining on the Upper West Side just got better!
    Our new menu also embraces this change of season.  Our winter stews and meats have moved to fish and fowl.  Our winter citrus migrates to spring shoots and leafy vegetables.  At the bar our dark and heavy spirits are refreshed with crisp and clean vodkas and gins. Our hot teas used to warm the soul are replaced with iced to cool us down on a hot day.  The spring chickens have come home to roost. There are lots of change afoot, our entire menu has been recrafted with wider price ranges in mind.
     We invite you this spring to come join us again as we celebrate rebirth and renew our commitment to the season.  Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table is the perfect place to come and escape your hectic world.  The Neighborhood has been coming in droves. Come see what you have been missing!

A Thoughtful St. Patrick's Day at Elizabeth's!

A Thoughtful St. Patrick's Day at Elizabeth's!

      St. Patrick's Day is a very special day for us here at Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table.   While the history of St. Patrick is significant, we all know what the day now represents.  Well that's not the way Elizabeth grew up.   Elizabeth's family, The O'Leary's, still reside in Elizabeth's hometown outside of Boston, and are very involved in the community there.  To us St. Patrick's day is a day to remember our common history and celebrate our heritage.  It's a fun day when everyone is Irish!  While others may chose to celebrate in Irish pubs with green beer, the O'Leary's were always more about the food!  Elizabeth looked forward to the special items she only saw come out of Nana's kitchen  a few times a year.  The smell of the corned beef slow cooking on the stove, the warm soda bread baking in the oven, the stew (oh the stew!)  the large tables full of brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, cousins and the occasional neighbor from next door.  St. Patrick's day for us is simple, it's about family and food! 

That is the feeling we bring to St. Patrick's day today.  We appreciate that  nip of something nice helps the celebration (and we are all for that!),  but when you've grown all up you are looking for something a little more.    So leave the downtown rookies at the Irish pub with their green beer and celebrate Thoughtfully with us!  We are happy to share our St. Patrick's menu which is inspired by Nana O'Leary's kitchen!

A THOUGHTFUL WINTER AT ELIZABETH'S!

Here at Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table we wish you an amazing 2017!  The craziness of the holiday season is behind us and we are all now settling down into the dark cold of winter.  The last of the harvest has been picked, the root cellar is stocked, and the Garden and Farms have all been turned and put to bed.  And just like the garden our bodies slow down too, we are ready for a rest.  We naturally pack on a few extra pounds and find it harder to jump out of bed when the alarm rings.  Its hibernation time, time to cuddle up with loved ones, and enjoy the warmth of home cooking and happy hearths.  Its family time.

We feel the days getting longer each day.  We understand that the spring thaw will be shortly on the way, yet we are in no rush for spring.  We deeply cherish this time and all it has to offer. Winter sports, hot chocolate, runny noses, slow cooked meals, and family dinners all make winter time a very special time in the Neighborhood.

At Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table we honor and celebrate this slow down. We honor the foods of the season which miraculously are ready to be picked at just the right moment and yet also have the ability to be stored and eaten throughout the entire winter. We treasure the fact that we live on a planet  climate just happens to straddle the freezing point of water.  Snow and Sun. Water and ice. We get to experience it all, and experience it we will!

Sure this is 2016 and we could get just about anything from anywhere.  But here we honor our local farmers and our local traditions.  Our meals this season are hearty, they reflect whats found in the root cellar, and are designed around the fauna, fish, and fowl that are still locally available.  This is the season to be nurtured. Soups, stews, pot pies,  hearty meals, Let us nurture you!

So gather the family, huddle close,  enjoy each other, and have so much fun that the thought of pulling away to cook or do dishes is unfathomable.  Then  come over to Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table to warm up, and let us take care you and the people you love most.  Show how much you care by thoughtfully selecting Elizabeth's to nurture your family.  We are crafting everything with love and honor,  I think you will taste the difference!

MORNING PORCH YOGA!

Elizabeth's Neighborhood Table is all about Thoughtful American Comfort food.  We seek to nourish you in a casual warm and friendly atmosphere.  We want to care for you.  Elizabeth has done an amazing job of curating small farms and specialty vendors to give you confidence in our menu.  But she knew there was more we could do.

For years she has felt that our amazing front porch has more to offer than simply a space to dine.  A few summers back she brought the neighborhood a green market with incredible produce from our local farmers at Delucia farms.  Now not only could you taste the incredibly fresh and perfectly ripe produce at the restaurant, but we could help nourish you at home as well.  But she felt there was still more we can do.

After a long winter she imagined being able to nourish our guests minds and bodies as well as their bellies.  A conversation with Derric Harris (local Yogi and thoughtful guest of Elizabeth's) sparked an incredible idea.  So this year Elizabeth is offering some Front Porch Yoga!  Let’s use that beautiful porch to gather the neighborhood and invigorate ourselves and kick off a fabulous day!  We had another great turn out followed by a wonderful and thoughtful breakfast.

Elizabeth will continue to offer porch yoga routinely as weather permits.  We got super lucky at this morning session.  All levels welcome!!!  Bring a yoga mat or towel (we will have some extra if you don’t have).  This is a free offer to the neighborhood;however an optional pay as you can donation will be asked for to help cover our Yogi's time.

Let the yoga mat replace your plate on our porch.  Smiles, Stretching, and morning fresh air will be our specials on this morning.  Let's gather and celebrate ourselves!

Call for more info and to find out about our next day out on the porch!

THE CHANGE OF SEASON! WELCOME FALL!

Labor day has past,  the kids are now back to school (finally!), and as we are still packing away our summer whites Granny Smith reminds us that fall is just around the corner.  The summer corn and watermelon is waning and the apples, pumpkin, and flavors of fall begin to surround us.  At Elizabeth’s Neighborhood Table  we listen to world around us.  We see the first signs of fall in the trees, we hear the geese heading south overhead.  We get excited about the new season and what it has to offer.  That nip in the air that says chicken pot pie!  The blowing leaf pile that reminds us of hot buttered rum and cider after a hard day of fall clean up.   I can almost smell the apple pie from here.
 Think how lucky we are to live in a place that has four full seasons.  What curious twist of fate puts NYC in just the place where freezing temperatures turn the city white in winter, and yet still heats up the pavement and sends us to the beach in summer.  Our bodies have evolved alongside this cycle just as the orchid has evolved with the butterfly that propagates it.  Our bodies need the diversity of food that this cycle brings.  It is time to embrace this change of season and welcome it.  Put away those summer gin and tonics and rose wines, and dust off the dark scotch’s and deep cabernets for the new season.  Salads are so last season, lets talk soup!  Hearty proteins and big vegetables.  It’s time to start bulking up for the long cold winter with the bounty of fall harvest.   Elizabeth’s Neighborhood Table is just the place to dive right in.  Stop by and see what we have cooking.  I’m sure you will find that our Thoughtful American Comfort Food is the very thing you’ve been craving!  Hope to see you soon!
Thoughtfully Yours!
