Come see two culinary cornerstones of the East Village in the hot seat at Tompkins Square Greenmarket on September 9th, as Veselka Bowery and Hearth Restaurant / Terroir Wine Bar face off to claim the title of Iron Chef. Each chef will have just an hour to transform a "mystery basket" of market ingredients into a delicious dish.  Traven Rice of The Lo-Down blog and an esteemed panel of judges will crown a winner, and limited samples will be available to the public. Sunday, Sept 9 1-4pm Tompkins Square Greenmarket 7th St at Avenue A Veselka Bowery is an East Village institution, begun in 1954 as a small candy store and newsstand and quickly taking over the neighboring steak luncheonette. It began with a small following of people looking for inexpensive homemade authentic Eastern European food in an underground atmosphere and today offers an extensive menu that features homemade Ukrainian foods along with traditional American diner fare and an eclectic mix of daily specials. Hearth Restaurant & Terroir Wine Bar are both located in Manhattan's East Village. Their food is rooted in the modern traditions of the American kitchen with influences from their Italian heritage. Most important to Hearth is their expression of hospitality. The hearth is the home and they take this sentiment to heart, aspiring in all manner of ways to exceed expectations.
