253. ABCV’s Executive Chef & Chief of Plant Based Development at Jean-Georges, Neal Harden, Talks Innovation In Vegetarian and Vegan Cuisine, Running, & Vintage Bicycles

Today on the podcast, I sync up up with Neal Harden, the Executive Chef at AbcV, one of my fave restaurants here in NYC. Neal is also Chief of Plant Based Development for Jean-Georges. Located on the boarder of Flatiron & Union Square, ABCV opened in 2017 with the pioneering concept of pairing innovative delicious plant-based vegetarian and vegan cuisine with an elevated high end dining experience, brought to life by the super talented team of Jean-Georges Vongericthen, ABC Carpet & Home’s Paulette Cole and Chef Neal Harden. During our conversation Neal and I sync up about the inspiration behind the incredible plant-based vegetarian and vegan cuisine, how Neal’s career as a chef began, the groups newest restaurants at The Tin Building in NYC’s South Street Seaport, and of course I get the scoop on the exercise and workouts that fuel Neal for success.

P.S. My fave dishes include:

  • Dosas with avocado, microgreens and cashew yogurt
  • Whole roasted cauliflower, turmeric tahini, date molasses, pomegranate, red zhug, fresh herbs, pistachio
  • Beluga lentils sautéed in black vinegar and aromatic chili oil, lemon braised fingerling yam, radish & cilantro stems.

There is also a full bar with and organic and and biodynamic wine and locally crafted spirits, non-alcoholic beverages, smoothies, juices, and Kombucha.
