Work out, hang out, take out: Turf on West 4th is a destination for meet-ups as well as workouts, with a menu that focuses on plant-based recipes and the offer to add “happy protein,” i.e., humanely sourced meat—Uncle Tuffy’s Bison Balls, anyone? After a will-testing fitness class, settle in with the kimchi ’n’ mash (a heavenly heap of mashed root vegetables and squash topped with kimchi, adzuki beans, sautéed greens and tahini dressing). If you’d rather fake the part of gym rat, enjoy locally roasted Moja coffee and baked goods or, better yet, something from the new beer and wine list
