Spotlight On: New York's Edible Eat Drink Local Week

This week is, or has been, Edible Eat Drink Local Week in New York. A few dozen restaurants in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and eastern Long Island (and one or two others on the peripheries of those areas) are offering special menus that highlight locally produced food.

I heard about Edible Local from a weekly email newsletter from Council on the Environment. After surfing around, the menu that has caught my interest is Almond's, Manhattan location (12 East 22nd Street). There's a Long Island location, too. For the special menu, click on the Google map that's displayed from Edible's web site. Some, but not all, restaurants have put their special menus on the links on that map.

What caught my attention was the focus on goat: roasted goat meat, goat's milk feta cheese, and goat's milk ricotta gnocchi.
