Nestled in the Upper East Side, Heidi’s House by The Side of The Road is a quaint and delightful restaurant that serves a mix of delicious comfort food to enchant the taste buds and charm customers. Heidi’s serves classic entrées and an array of cultural cuisines fresh out of mom’s kitchen, from the pasta dish of the day to the tuna tartare and shrimp tacos. Only the best quality food is served out of this kitchen, as Chef Cipriano Pita creates all dishes with fresh local ingredients, offering a selection of organic and gluten-free options.
Organic eaters can find several organic options at this ingredient-conscious restaurant. The creamy and cheesy macaroni and cheese is made fresh with each order, and is crafted with organic cheese and cream, while the snack-sized hummus dish is served with organic garbanzo beans and warm pita bread. Desserts like the buzzed-about chocolate soufflé are made with organic ingredients like organic Belgian dark chocolate, and the date pudding is topped with organic whipped cream.
The meat entrees at Heidi’s are also sourced from high-quality grass-fed livestock. Featured grass-fed dishes include the Vietnamese beef salad (filet mignon served with salad, drizzled with a tangy dressing), and the juicy hamburger. Heidi’s takes the classic hamburger up a notch with a grass-fed beef patty cooked to order and rested on an English muffin with lettuce, tomato, onion, organic white cheddar cheese, and organically fed bacon. The hamburger is served with homemade, crisp potato chips.
For gluten-free options, try Heidi's specialty crab dip appetizer. Made with the freshest crabmeat, horseradish, with millet and flaxseed and gluten-free rice tortilla chips, the gluten-free crab dip is a favorite.
At this locally sourced restaurant, the meals are made with care and great quality. Stop by the rustic wine bar-restaurant known as Heidi's House by The Side of The Road to sip on some hand selected wines and savory food.
