Although both Michel Nischan—poster boy for all foods seasonal, local and organic—and his replacement, John Mooney, have moved on, Drew Nieporent’s Heartbeat remains committed to mostly heart-healthy. seasonal dishes. Many of the meats, some of the wines and all of the fruits and vegetables served in the golden-hued dining room are organic, and the ingredients are as impeccable as ever. We’re happy to report that steak and chocolate cake are in season.
