See a Testimonial article about Better Being.

On a bright, sunny morning, recently, I enjoyed a lovely omelette breakfast at Better Being, in Hell’s Kitchen, overlooking the bustle of Ninth Avenue street traffic, construction, and pedestrians. But, within this lovely, refined restaurant, currently serving breakfast and lunch, but soon expanding to dinners with wine and more, it is ever so peaceful and bucolic. Shari, Better Being’s Proprietor, has a wide variety of greenery hanging about and set into and outside the windows. This gives the sleek bistro a feeling that you’re within a private patio. The music, ambiance, tile tables, florals in vases, exposed brick walls, and green garden chairs all add to the chic dining décor. Art photography adorns the walls, and the staff is eager to please.

I dined on a Cheddar Omelette with Spinach and Tomatoes, Whole Grain Toast, Salad, and Organic Coffee. Shari, who was overseeing staff to prepare for the day (they also have an incredible catering service) lent me her bowl of Homemade Granola, Berries, and Crème Fraiche for a photo for this article. Stay tuned to learn more about Better Being’s new dining hours and expanded menu, including a drink menu. Better Being is well located near Broadway and Off-Broadway plays and musicals, and near the High Line, Hudson Yards, and, even closer, the Fashion District. Stop by Better Being and tell them you saw them on!
