Good Choice Kitchen, located on Main Street in Ossining, has only been open since February, but word has already spread that anyone can dine comfortably there, despite dietary restrictions. The café has an extensive fresh juice and smoothie menu as well as 100 percent vegan menus that vary by season.

Chef and owner Laurie Gershgorn began cooking when she was very young and ultimately received professional training at the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in Manhattan. After years as a private chef with a dream of owning a café, she opened Good Choice Kitchen to provide more vegetarian, gluten-free and vegan options to the community. “As a plus, every plate and bowl is made of a sustainable bamboo material, with the to-go containers made of compostable material,” she says. “This eliminates a lot of waste that would have ended up in the environment.”

Good Choice Kitchen also offers seasonal cooking classes for adults and children, with lessons ranging from basic knife skills to gluten-free baking. “By providing lessons in healthy cooking, I hope to inspire busy parents to cook more meals for their families,” Gershgorn says.

Weekly meal plans she’s prepared are available for pickup or delivery. These meals may be custom ordered and can accommodate vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free and other dietary restrictions or preferences.

Good Choice Kitchen is located at 147 Main St., Ossining, NY. For more info, visit GoodChoiceKitchen.com.
