Angelica’s kitchen is one of the oldest restaurants that serve organic, health-conscious food in New York City. The restaurant has been in operation since the year 1976. Unfortunately, they were almost forced to close at one time due to the rise in occupancy costs. However, the owner made a decision made to stay in business. She trusted that there were enough health-conscious people to keep her business in operation.

The restaurant is located near Second Avenue at 300 East 12th Street. The restaurant does not do reservations. Customers are usually served on a first come, first serve basis. People are encouraged to bring their friends, for a taste of the fine food on offer.
Combating Hard Water
Angelica’s restaurant aims at being the healthiest restaurant in New York City. However, this is complicated by the fact there is almost no fresh water in the City. For one, most of the City’s water comes from underground sources. As a result, the water is usually contaminated with minerals such as calcium and magnesium. These minerals and their compounds have a very detrimental effect on the human body. They usually cause the skin to dry up and the hair to be very weak.
Getting rid of hardness would not be practical for the water companies. This is because they are profit-making businesses and treating hardness on an industrial is not profitable. Water hardness can usually see on water faucets as a chalky white substance. One has to purchase products in order to get rid of this residue on plumbing fixtures. In addition, it usually causes kitchen utensils to fade in luster. There are a number of technologies available in the market to deal with water hardness.
One of the most used appliances is the Fleck 5600SXT a water softener that some claim to be the best one size fits all option from Fleck for small and large homes. This is a good whole house water softener system. By softening all water used in the restaurant, it can extend their life by about 40%. In addition, any hot water based appliance will be able to run more efficiently. As a result, the restaurant is able to reduce its electrical bills significantly. The system works by removing the minerals that cause water hardness and flushing them down the drain. The system is very efficient and very quiet. In addition, it is programmable to ensure that the restaurant always has soft water available for its clients.
Advantages of Fresh Water
There are many advantages to using fresh water. For one, the skin and hair are kept better moisturized. Generally, if one has healthy skin, it is an indication that their other internal organs are also doing great. The use of soft water also makes the food taste better. This is because it is easier to dissolve aromatics in soft water. Consequently, the organic foods natural flavors are more evenly spread out to ensure that food has a smoother taste.
Angelica’s restaurant is a great place that serves awesome food it is definitely worth visiting. It is especially great for those who love organic foods that are well prepared. Their use of soft water in preparing the meals is also quite commendable.
