It's lunchtime and I'm at my office in Chelsea pondering where to eat. Using Outseeker, I found an unexpected taco place that was in my budget, offered delicious food, and wasn't far. Perfect!
Last we left it, the Outseekers and I were taking a break because we wanted to pace ourselves. At the recommendation of the server from Mandoo Bar, we went to a Korean style bakery/café down the street and sipped some tea before moving on.

Looking through these, we saw a few that looked great. We decided on the top choice: Candle 79. A quick click on the Opentable reservation link, and we were set! The meal proved to be excellent, with very inventive and memorable organic vegan cuisine.
