Beets with a purpose are on the agenda at Bink's Midtown.

Starting eating right this year. And by right, we mean "only the best local stuff." There's a wide variety of great farm-to-table products and menu items, what follows is just a smattering of local goodness. If there's something on this list you haven't had, it's time to try or take home something new.

Boho Farm and Home
Rose petal jam? Found locally and it's dream-worthy and sophisticated.
Rose Petal Jelly from Boho Farm and Home ($8)
Boho Farm owner Caroline Van Slyke first saw this jelly when she was in the South of France at a friend's confiserie. She returned to the States with many jars of their amazing "confit de petales de rose," and the result is her amazing rose petal jelly. It sells out quickly and you can often find it at Singh Farms, Sweet Salvage, and Bodega.


Beets at Bink's Midtown ($6)
This combo of golden beets, hazelnuts, and goat feta with huckleberry vinaigrette is heavenly if not nearly healthy. Take our advice: Don't share this dish! Make your dining partner order their own.

Braised Leeks at FnB ($14)

FnB
Award-winning local leeks at FnB.
Made with King Richard leeks from McClendon Farms, this dish is worth every penny of the $14. Named one of the best dishes of 2010 by Food & Wine magazine, the dish is still going strong and back on the menu. Basic? Maybe, but until you can create this combo of braised leeks, mozzarella, mustard-accented bread crumbs and a soft-fried egg-- go to FnB in 2014.
