Nero is a fabulous restaurant located at the corner of Gansevoort St. and Greenwich St., right across the street from The Gansevoort Hotel. The decor is romantic, dimly lit and exposed brick. Recommended dishes include Insalata di Rucola (roasted beets, herb goat cheese, honey vinaigrette) and the grilled organic salmon served with garlic whipped potatoes and a variety of Mediterranean vegetables.

After weeks of watching this new Midtown lunch spot under construction it finally opens!
What a great day for them to open their doors, the sunshine will definitely help increase their foot traffic. I ordered my Hummus Bowl with Salad. I didn't pair it with a tea, maybe next time, but I was excited to see that a "crisp" (a.k.a. falafel ball) comes with each Hummus Bowl.

From Midtown Lunch's post I learned that...
  • Their pita breads are baked from scratch every few hours on premises
  • Their fresh made teas sound really good (with flavors like lychee, ginger/peach, & apple mango)
  • Some of the ingredients they use in the sandwiches I could be down with… like mango curry, eggplant, goat cheese, and pomegranate dressing
  • I won’t eat salads, but a hummus bowl with mango curry or roasted eggplant sounds pretty damn good
  • Everything they serve is organic, when possible, and always delivered fresh daily. Plus they change their oil every 24 hours, and they only use eco-friendly, recycled materials
The Crisp Sandwiches may make for a good meal but the Hummus Bowls might end up being a better snack for most people.
Definitely worth checking out- Crisp-- on 3rd Ave. btw. 43+44th
