The bowl has become an acclaimed meal category all over NYC.
Why not? More ingredients can pile into a bowl than onto a flat plate, and these ingredients are typically fresh and nutritious. We all know the burrito bowl from a certain chain restaurant is good, but plenty of local chefs and fast-food chains have been getting creative and making their own versions of "the bowl."Lose the bread for a day and try one of the best bowls in the city; you'll quickly understand what all the fuss is about.
