Best Omelet - 2001
Perched on a promontory overlooking the hubbub of Canal Street, 416 B.C. is Manhattan's only Bulgarian restaurant. Among lots of great menu items, the kavarma omelet stands outan enormous egg-wrapper that, crepelike, enfolds the national spin on goulash, an oily pork stew sweetened with plenty of peppers and onions. Also superlative is kyopolu, a complex puree of roasted vegetables, including eggplant, red peppers, tomatoes, parsley, and plenty of garlic.
