A coffee-floral hybrid shop, a restaurant hiding a rooftop farm, and a jazz pioneer who can make any genre work: Not everything is as it seems on these stops around the West Village.
DRINK: Pick-Me-Ups at This Florist-Slash-Café

EAT: Superfresh Ingredients at Bell, Book & Candle
Most of the herbs, salads, and veggies found in the meals here come straight from the restaurant’s aeroponic rooftop garden—a fancy term for “everything is going to taste amazing.” 141 West 10th Street #A (between Waverly Place and Greenwich Avenue)
