A carrot salad sounds about as sexy as an enema, but this rendition at ABC Kitchen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten's sustainable, veggie-friendly restaurant, bests any version that has ever come before it. Small, bright-orange spears are kissed with cumin and roasted, then are combined with creamy avocado, a bevy of sprouts and seeds, several sourdough croutons, and a dollop of sour cream. The carrots are shockingly sweet, and the sour cream and avocado's richness elevate this vegetarian delight from the perils of bird-food-esque salads. A squeeze of roasted citrus adds a crescendo of tang, completing this perfect symphony of a salad. 35 East 18th Street, 212-475-5829, abckitchennyc.com (10003)
