Eatin’ @ The Little Beet

If you’re a regular around these parts, you know that The Little Beet is an Ace customer and that we love them very much. You most likely also know that they have a bomb location at The Pennsy, the fancy food hall by Penn Station, and that we reviewed it about a year ago. What […]

Eating With A Conscience @ Siggy’s Good Food

Last Thursday, we were lured into Siggy’s Good Food by their unusual/amazing tag line “Aliens Eat Free.” We quickly discovered, however, that the advertising is a little misleading–what we love the most about Siggy’s is that they cater to all humans with healthy organic options for omnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters. Our expectations were high, partly […]

Last Scoops Of Summer @ Jacob Riis (The People’s Beach)

Poll a random group of people and you’ll find that it’s hard to get them to agree on the best flavor of ice cream or whether a cake cone is better than a waffle cone. Ask them whether or not the summer has gone by quickly, though, and you’ll soon see that it’s much easier […]

Mixing It Up With Ace Customer Magic Mix Juicery

When Jil Larsen was diagnosed with the skin condition melasma, she knew that the only thing that might make her better was changing the way she ate, which she describes as the standard American diet. “I think I was overfed and undernourished,” she said in an interview with Ace fave Clean Plates. “I eliminated one […]

Meatless Monday With Ace Vendor Heidi Matonis + A Deal!

Ask Heidi Matonis, founder of Heidi’s Real Food, why she started her business and she’ll readily admit that it wasn’t a lifelong plan: “I began my vegan food business as part of a mid-life crisis, a challenge, a dare to myself. I knew nothing about the food business. I simply liked to cook and used it […]

Spice Up Your Summer With These NEW Cookbooks

Happy end-of-July!

Marching To The Beet Of Their Own Drumstick

Last Friday, we headed over to the Flatiron district, and stopped by Ace customer Latin Beet Kitchen (not to be confused with Ace customer The Little Beet) for an early–and exceedingly delicious–dinner.Self-described as “the cure for the common deli,” Latin Beet Kitchen is the 2nd culinary venture of the family behind the fancier restaurant, Raymi. As they write […]

Drinking Real Food With LuliTonix

Ace customer LuliTonix is famous for their “seriously addictive, authentically bad-@ss functional blends that cleanse, balance, and satiate.” This means nut-mylks packed with plant-based protein, powerful elixirs, and raw blended juices bursting with organic veggies that are “hardcore enough to satisfy the most bad-@ss green junkie, but crave-worthy enough to seduce even the most processed […]

Mana Mania: A Cozy Dinner On The Upper West Side

On a chilly winter night not too long ago, we sought refuge in the warm embrace of Mana Restaurant, an Ace customer located on the Upper West Side. The self-described “calm oasis for organic, macrobiotic, vegetarian and vegan cuisine” has been serving local, sustainable food to New Yorkers since 1989–but that wasn’t always owner Sung Hee Lee’s […]

Dining In Style @ TurnStyle

How many times have you walked through Columbus Circle with your stomach grumbling only to realize you’re still 30 minutes from your destination and nearly as far from a fast, healthy food option? Well, we’ve been there too, which is why we’re so excited to welcome TurnStyle NYC, the new underground eatery and retail space in Columbus Circle. […]

Eating At The Pennsy + The Little Beet Can’t Be Beat!

Hello there! How was your first warm weekend? Ours was great for many, many reasons including the fact that we were lucky enough to visit Ace customer The Little Beet at the high end food hall The Pennsy. Located at 2 Penn Plaza, this self-described “new innovative culinary destination” is truly a health food oasis in the middle […]

Celebrate Valentine’s Day The Ace Way

It’s somehow already the first week of February (seriously, how did that happen?!) which means that it’s almost Valentine’s Day. Whether the one day a year officially devoted to love is your greatest joy or your personal nightmare, it’s happening and there’s no better way to celebrate/power through it than in the company of Ace […]

DIY: Seared Sesame Tuna With Soba Noodles + A Deal…

Hello, hello and welcome to the first DIY recipe post of 2016! We scoured the great wide internet repeatedly for some type of information affirming the auspiciousness of beginnings mixed with tuna–and all the luck that we were sure the combination of the two would bring you–but alas! we found nothing. That doesn’t mean, however, that eating tuna, […]

Catching Up With Our Customers

Howdy, howdy! This past year, we’ve had the pleasure of welcoming some new customers aboard the Ace train as well as watching long-time customers reincarnate. As if that isn’t exciting enough, we are currently looking forward to the opening of some new healthy eateries, as well! It seems like everywhere we look these days, there […]

Lunching With Ace Customer V-Spot Organic

  The rain is coming down in droves as rainboot-clad students and yoga mat-toting 20-somethings dash down St. Mark’s, some pausing under awnings to escape the deluge, others haggling with vendors over cheap umbrellas. The outside chaos, however, quickly fades as I duck into the new location of Ace customer V-Spot. Inside, Beatles music plays, a group of teenagers lounge […]
