Eager to make a difference this Earth Month, but want to do more than plant a tree? At Sofitel New York, hotel guests and visitors alike are invited to reduce their carbon footprint simply by dining at Gaby Brasserie Française, our outstanding brasserie and bar that serves up French- and American-inspired cuisine by Executive Chef Robert Hohmann.
Transporting food takes a lot of energy – most groceries travel about 1,500 miles before being consumed – which leads to the culmination of carbon dioxide, a chemical compound scientifically linked to climate change. To combat this, Gaby Brasserie will be offering a 100-Mile Earth Day Menu from April 14-28. As the name suggests, meals for lunch ($39) and dinner ($49) will feature ingredients supplied within a 100-mile radius of the hotel.
Items from the prix-fixe menu include, spinach salad tossed in red wine vinaigrette from Warwick Vineyards and wild honey packaged by Urban Honey in Brooklyn, New York; chicken oysters raised at Goffle Road Poultry Farm in New Jersey; fillet medallions courtesy of the New York Beef Company; and a decadent apple and rhubarb crumble prepared with produce from Bryant Farms in the Hudson Valley.
