Go Ahead & Dig Inn

Which one of us doesn’t like diving head first in to a yummy plate of food? This is why I must recommend a place that allows us to do just that. 

Dig Inn is my go-to, favorite restaurant for seasonal American food with a walk-in buffet meets farmer market feel. Heads up that they have locations in Boston, Rye Brook, and all over New York. 

Let’s dig right inn to why I highly recommend this for our on-the-go, healthy, active and busy schedules! 

Dig Inn to Aesthetic 

When seeing a Dig Inn location, we can all expect an open invitation to good service and good food. The outside is always wooden and their signature logo. 

The best part is the inside and how committed they are to making each and every customer feel instantly at home. 

At my favorite location on Hudson Street in NYC, they have wooden floors, walls, and tables that make it so easy to read each recipe and decipher what the heck the options are. 

Behind the counter is a buffet style where you choose proteins (my go-to is tofu) and sides (personal favorites being their cauliflower, sweet potatoes, mac and cheese). 

The style of each separate plate on the counter is also reminiscent of a family table minus the bickering đŸ™‚

The whole aesthetic in Dig Inn screams a comfortable and laid-back atmosphere to sit and eat or just grab food on the go. 

Dig Inn to Service

We can always use good customer service and even a smile in the hustle and bustle of a big city. That’s why I love frequenting Dig Inn. 

Finding a good place is about more than just the food, and all about the feels. And there are good feels there. 

Perfect example is my latest visit at their Hudson Street Location. I wanted to try a new dish than my usual protein plate. I was craving a salad. 

The poor man behind the counter answered all my pressing questions about the number of sides, the types of dressings and the varieties of proteins I can add to my salad. That being said, he got a gold star for customer service.

However, I have to admit, the #1 reason to recommend any restuarant is the food. 

Dig Inn to Food 

As people who enjoy food, there’s nothing like discovering a place to eat some good food. If we are looking for the perfect combination of healthy and yummy, Dig Inn serves both. 

The restaurant sources their produce and products from local farmers and partners, which is greatly in line with their mission. They also make sure to create a menu based off of what is in season and what is healthy. 

Back to the story! When I finally decided on my salad, let me tell you guys, my mind was blown. The picture below is a tofu salad of goodness.

Carrots, squash, and cattlebeans were my sides of choice and chimichurri sauce came in the for win (just like last week). Admittedly, it still was tough to part from my mac and cheese. 

That all being said, there is never a disappointing choice at Dig Inn. Never do I usually stray from my usuals at places in fear of not liking it. 

 But Dig Inn shows that you can arrange your own meal or go back to your usual with no fear. 

Go ahead and Dig Inn.

Why not?! The aesthetic is good. The service is good. The food is good. If you are near New York City, Boston, or Rye Brook, it won’t disappoint!

    Superb blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Cheers!

      Hi Beau! Thanks so much! I would really recommend Squarespace. I used that for 2+ years and before switching over to my current blog on WordPress. I’ve had to learn so much on WordPress and Squarespace I was able to easily launch and start the blog within less than a week!
