Candle 79 is the upscale, elegant sister restaurant of the famous Candle Cafe locations, also in NYC. Like their other locations, Candle 79 serves lunch, dinner and weekend brunch, offers a lovely house made dessert menu, has extensive gluten-free offerings, is 100% dairy-free and vegan, and focuses on organic, sustainable cuisine. Where they differ is in the overall experience.
Candle 79 is the spot for eco-friendly cocktails and offers a more refined night out in terms of atmosphere and a slightly elevated menu. A few of the reported must haves on the menu include the Mezze Platter, Caesar Salad with cashew parmesan, the Spaghetti & Wheat Balls (a crowd-pleaser), and for dessert, the Chocolate Peanut Butter Bliss (speaks for itself, don’t you think?).
