Interesting ingredients in ingenious combinations, food bowls offer comfort, crunch and, of course, deliciousness in equal measure. No wonder they are one social media trend with staying power—and one eating trend that is well represented at The Restaurants at Hudson Yards. Because so many feature fruits and vegetables, they’re sure to hit the spot this spring.
1. Bluestone Lane’s Breakfast Bowl
The only issue with ordering this delightful mix of baby kale, cherry tomatoes, feta, avocado, warm farro and a poached egg is that you’ll have no room left to enjoy the cafe’s equally scrumptious Best Mates and Green Goddess bowls. Maybe you should invite some friends along so you can share all three. And don’t be fooled by the name; it’s available all day.

2. Electric Lemon’s Beauty Bowl
Named not only for the way it looks, but also the way it will make you feel, this bright-pink brunch choice tops beet yogurt with slices of honeycrisp apple, grapes, pistachio, and bee pollen.
3. Kamasu’s Kanpachi Don
For another pretty-in-pink experience, if a more savory one, try this donburi bowl of warm sushi rice topped with amberjack tartare, ginger, torched pickled onion and puffed koji.
4. O’Toole’s Way’s Cobb
The neighborhood’s new local tavern brings a strong salad game, and the star is this traditional big salad: market greens, bleu cheese, egg, avocado and bacon.
5. Sweetgreen’s Crispy Rice Bowl
The mix of veggies (arugula, cilantro, cucumber, shredded cabbage, carrots), grains (warm wild rice and crispy rice) and toppings (toasted almonds, blackened chicken, fresh lime), doused with the much-loved spicy cashew dressing, is one of the chain’s best sellers for a reason.
6. The Bronx Brewery’s Mas Mais Bowl
You can’t go wrong with any of the establishment’s signature selections, including those featuring beef short rib, Puerto Rican style pulled pork and slow-cooked black beans, but the shredded chicken tinga served with roasted elote, multiple cheeses, charred onions and micro cilantro really screams springtime.
