Menu Moments: What To Order At Amis

As part of “06880”‘s new feature, registered dietician Heather Bauer offers tips on the best, healthiest dishes to order at local restaurants.

Today she talks about Amis. The popular Bedford Square trattoria  offers indoor and patio dining — and many options. Heather says:

Amis is very accommodating for specific dietary needs. There’s even a key in the right corner of the menu specifying gluten-free, vegan or vegetarian.

With my recommendations, you will not have to make any substitutions or special requests. As always: Skip the bread and dessert, and enjoy your food the way the chef has prepared it for you!

Fish Lover Options

Appetizer:

Arugula salad

Ccucumber salad

Entree:

Grilled octopus appetizer (make sure you specify you want this to arrive with entree) + asparagus (share with table)

Grilled salmon

Whole branzino (recommended for fast eaters; you’ll have to “work” for your food)

Mussels (another good working food option;  great for faster eaters)

Meat Lover Options

Appetizer:

Arugula salad

Bufala mozzarella

Entree:

Grilled chicken paillard (bufala mozzarella as starter)

New York strip (arugula salad to start)

Sal’s meatballs (arugula salad to start)

Vegetarian options (vegans must stick to vegan options listed on menu)

Appetizer:

Arugula salad

Cucumber salad

Asparagus “alla plancha”

Entree:

Spinach ricotta meatballs

Bufala mozzarella

Kale and quinoa salad (if you have this for an entree, start with asparagus)

Bonus dining tip from Heather

Be Prepared with A,B,C: Researching the restaurant beforehand is great, but have 2 backup meal choices in case your first choice isn’t available. A lot of clients get discouraged when they can’t order what they planned on. They end up making a choice they regret.
