The Furthermore guide to Hudson Eats

Our nutrition pro navigates the new downtown lunch menus.

No doubt the migration to lower Manhattan will be an adjustment for many New Yorkers. We're here to help. Along with the opening of Equinox's new Brookfield Place club, featuring a fresh food and beverage concept of its own, there's Hudson Eats—a collection of top NYC eateries that includes Blue Ribbon Sushi. In the name of clean dining, we asked our top nutrition expert, Maria Pagano, RD to hand pick selections from the Hudson Eats menus. Enjoy:

blackseed bagel: multi-grain bagel with smoked salmon, avocado, tomato, onion, and capers

“If you’re going to eat a bagel, choose one that’s truly whole grain for fiber and B vitamins. Salmon is a source of healthy protein; onions are rich in sulfur, which helps feed the mitochondria (powerhouse of your cells).”

dos toros: two pollo asado tacos with salsa, guacamole and hot sauce

”Corn tacos are a great option for gluten free eaters.”

olives: special salad

“This salad is loaded with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that work as detoxifiers, antioxidants and decrease inflammation.”

blue ribbon sushi bar: new year bento box special

“Tuna and salmon are both high in omega 3 fats; soba needles can be a great gluten free option if no wheat is added; and sea vegetables are great for detoxification.”

skinny pizza: skinny margherita

“I’d have this on a whole grain or gluten free pizza crust and add vegetable toppings for a good dose of lyopene and calcium.”

dig inn: small grilled salmon marketplate; sides: broccoli & kale medley

“This is a great combination: salmon for protein, bulgur for fiber; broccoli for anti -cancer phytochemicals.”

mighty quinn’s bbq: slow smoked half chicken and beet salad

"Chicken is great source of protein, just be careful of BBQ sauces—they are sodium and calorie dense, and also sometimes have high fructose corn syrup. Beets are an anti-inflammatory food—detoxifying and antioxidant rich, which is great for the circulatory system and blood pressure.”

little muenster: specialty turkey deli sandwich

“Turkey is great source of protein, and they make their own there, so it’s not processed.”

tartinery: avocado & asparagus tartine

“Asparagus is a natural detoxifier, antioxidant and is high in fiber, folate and vitamins A,C,E and K”

num pang sandwich shop: soup/salad combo

“The soup is a good source of protein and the salad is high in fiber. Kale decreases inflammation and carrots pack vitamin A.”

sprinkles: gluten free red velvet

“I mean if you must have a treat…”
