Whilst Hippies, vegans, Birkenstock-wearers as well as those with vegans and gluten-, garlic-, onionand wheat-free diets have Life Cafe and Posto Pubblico to look forward to. The furniture at Life Cafe on Shelley Street comes from sustainable forests in Indonesia and the takeaway is organic from vegetarian lasagna to beer.
SoHo's newest addition Posto Pubblico goes back to the basics with a menu concocted from mainly local, sustainable ingredients. The food is New York-style Italian, and the décor reflects this, with dark woods and bare brick walls. Hip Greenwich Village types come to get their fill of such dishes as veal meatballs and "Brooklyn Special" sandwiches of homemade mozzarella, eggplant and lashings of balsamic vinegar. Their thin-crust pizzas are excellent too, and their bread is baked fresh daily.
The Caramba lunch buffet is hard to beat in Soho, all you can eat Tex- Mex served Monday to Friday noon to 2:30pm. The enchiladas are great and so are the cocktails. You can try over 100 hot sauces from their "wall of flame" and be sure to ask for a table next to the window for more space.
