Dig Inn’s ‘Farm To Counter’ Health Food Comes to NoMad

'Farm To Counter' restaurant Dig Inn opens in the NoMad District.

New York has seen it’s share of restaurants following the recent “farm to counter” trend, but the prices and stiff atmosphere have often acted as a deterrent for those simply looking for healthy, fresh-cooked meals in the city. Dig Inn, one of the newest additions to the NoMad neighborhood’s impressive culinary scene, seems to get past these issues with their menu of locally-sourced, and reasonably-priced entrees, sandwiches, salads and side dishes.

Located at 1178 Broadway near 28th Street, Dig Inn offers a sleek, yet comfortable dining room with tables designed to encourage a communal atmosphere. The menu, cooked from scratch daily, offers items ala carte as well as in what the restaurant calls “marketplates” – a main dish accompanied by two sides, served on top of a bed of grains. Customers can order specials from each of the kitchen’s departments (the butcher block, the grill, sauté and crockpot).

All of the items are very reasonably priced. For only $7.58, diners may enjoy sandwiches like the “cluk’n’kale,” – naturally-raised roasted teriyaki chicken, sweet potatoes, kale and apple salad with ginger dressing on top of a freshly baked ciabatta roll from Balthazar. The restaurant also have several vegetarian options like the “veggivana” for $8.27 – sautéed kale, roasted sweet potatoes, cauliflower, pickled onions and spicy chipotle salsa and rBGH-free smoked cheddar on a roll.

Dig Inn is open weekdays from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekends. For more information, visit the Dig Inn website, or call (212) 335-2010.
