There’s an indulgent new way to eat your veggies.

Just in time for New Year’s resolutions (such as “eat more vegetables!”), New York City’s highly-acclaimed Le Bernardin is offering an exquisite vegetarian tasting menu.

Midtown’s Michelin three-starred stunner from executive chef and co-owner Eric Ripert is celebrated for its seafood-heavy succession of beautifully-plated dishes. And for the first time in the restaurant’s 35-year history, the team created a menu exclusively for vegetarians—or anyone who wants to veg out in a fancy way.

“I often get a dozen inquiries a week for a vegetable tasting,” chef Ripert told the Times. “I like the idea of a menu that pays homage to the vegetable, though it’s a creative challenge.”
