Chef Roxanne Spruance had competing interests growing up in Chicago: food and field hockey. But by 22, after a series of unpaid apprenticeships in some of Chicago's top dining restaurants, she had already earned the title of executive chef. In 2010, she moved to New York and into the kitchens of two renowned restaurants: WD-50 and Blue Hill at Stone Barns. Spruance joins "CBS This Morning: Saturday" to discuss her culinary journey and her New York restaurant, Kingsley.
Kingsley is a 100 percent landfill-free restaurant, chef and owner Roxanne Spruance tells us. Absolutely nothing comes out of the East Village restaurant and goes to the New York City trash system. Instead, all produce and meat is used, re-used (if possible) or composted. With a decked out resumé including spots like WD~50 and Blue Hill at Stone Barns, to say the Chicago native is familiar with transforming top-notch ingredients into even better and interesting dishes is an understatement. Keeping Kingsley a nearly waste-free restaurant comes naturally with her training and no-waste cooking techniques. She tells us more about how dishes like celeriac agnolotti and Kingsley’s bar program help achieve that landfill-free status.

There’s a reason Zagat rated Kingsley the “Newcomer” and “Best New American” restaurant: it’s got a pretty epic late night happy hour. Stop in any night (except Mondays) from 11 p.m. – close and take advantage of $4 drafts, $8 glasses of wine, and a $5 beer and shot special. If you have a sweet tooth, you might want to pair your drink of choice with their delicious desserts. They’re not part of the happy hour menu, but it may just be the best dough you’ve ever spent on dessert.
This Alphabet City French restaurant, which was named the best restaurant of 2017 by Zagat, will offer a $125 per person seven-course tasting menu, starting at 9 p.m., featuring truffles, caviar, venison, elk and, of course, Champagne. You can add on a beverage pairing for $65.
