Casa Verde’s Line of Plant-Based, Latin Meals (All Photos By Gail)

If you are like me, you love to eat, but would rather leave the cooking to others. Since I can’t dine out every day, my freezer is stuffed with Trader Joe’s favorites and my pantry holds staples like canned goods, pasta and rice, so I don’t go hungry, but sometimes I feel like I could be eating healthier.  I confess though that I am lazy in the kitchen and not the most imaginative cook, so I also need meal prep to be easy. Fortunately, if you can bring yourself to dice a few fresh vegetables and cook a pot of rice, you can eat like a true Foodie at home with Casa Verde’s new line of  heat-and-eat, plant-based meal kits that are perfectly portioned for a party of one.

The choice corner lot that formerly housed Tiny Fork Oyster Bar (RIP) is now home to a bright and casual Southern-Inspired bar and dining hall called The Derby. While this lower east side neighborhood has its share of up-and-coming eateries boasting a farm-to-table ethic, as far as location goes, you probably couldn’t ask for a better spot to enjoy an early summer evening dinner. Weather permitting, the front room keeps the doors and windows open to the street while the rear dining area remains flooded with natural light from its east-facing span of tall windows. The vibrant yellow-painted metal chairs, dark wood tables and antique bistro lighting (possibly left over from the space’s previous incarnation) add to The Derby’s welcoming vibe. Of course, the people watching is excellent.
