Bone broth, long a staple of the kitchen as a component in all kinds of dishes, is rippling out to diners at restaurants and takeout counters across the country. While science is inconclusive on whether it's a health-boosting superfood (it's a cornerstone of the Paleo diet, and proponents say it can help with everything from acne to cellulite), there's no denying that a cup of steaming broth will cure winter blues. Here, nine of the best places in the country to get bone broth.
Bone Deep & Harmony, New York City
Launched in May 2014, Lya Mojica and Taylor Chen make their broth in Harlem in partnership with neighborhood butcher shop The Shambles. You can order for pickup in Chelsea, Harlem, Midtown Manhattan or Katonah, New York. You can also have it delivered in Brooklyn through Good Eggs, or get a monthly or seasonal subscription.
Brodo and Hearth, New York City
Brodo is NYC's broth mecca, the spot where chef Marco Canora began last fall to serve broth by the cup from a window attached to his longstanding Hearth restaurant. On offer are Hearth broth (made with chicken, turkey and beef bones), organic chicken bone broth and grass-fed beef bone broth with add-ins like chile oil, fermented beet juice and bone marrow. And Hearth itself now offers a bone broth tasting menu consisting of grass-fed beef and ginger, Hearth and turmeric, and organic chicken and shiitake.
