Le Pain Quotidien founder and Chief Creative Officer, Alain Coumont opened the first botanical-based, apothecary-inspired NYC on Feb 1, 2016, on Lexington and 63rd. We are delighted to be returning to the original location!
LePainQuotidien.com: “[Le Botaniste] is the counterpart to the Belgium-based restaurant of the same name and intends to further organic, plant-based eating in New York City. … The restaurant is designed to evoke the feeling of a classic apothecary … mindful eating.”
From WellandGood.com: “Healthy, Organic, and Affordable: LE BOTANISTE Ticks Off All The Boxes … How often do you hear about a great food spot that’s health-conscious, organic, and affordable—oh, and serves wine? … Le Botaniste is the sort of vegan, gluten-free, and organic restaurant that has an impressive wine list—sulfite-free, pesticide-free, and biodynamically grown—and takes dessert seriously…”
Time Out New York says: “Bread-loving Belgian megachain Le Pain Quotidien is behind this apothecary-inspired wine bar, a sister to the Ghent, Belgium original… lab coat-clad bar staff pour unfiltered, biodynamic wines curated by Le Pain Quotidien founder Alain Coumont … The food menu is similarly organic and boasts no animal products. Instead expect chefly ‘prescriptions’ such as the Tibetan Mama (brown rice, steamed greens and spicy kimchi in a peanut-curry sauce) and Dirty Noodle Soup (tofu, steamed leeks, garlic).”
New York Times: “Le Botaniste Alain Coumont … has turned what was once one of his New York locations into a vegetarian wine bar … The décor suggests an old-fashioned pharmacy, and the bowls, containing a starch, sauce or side item and a topping, all organic, are called prescriptions. What’s not eaten is recycled or composted.”
For those of you who have never attended one of our Meetup events: this is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. It will be easy to find our group: we are taking over the majority of the restaurant. Also, everyone pays for their own meal. Easy!
Where to Meet: Please meet us right outside the restaurant after you have picked up your take-out dinner.
