It's finally April, and while we're hoping the thermometer continues to go up instead of down, we're also starting to think about how to shed those pesky winter pounds. Lucky for you, we've asked some of New York's finest chefs and restaurants to give us their best spring recipes. Our eclectic mini cookbook spans all types of cuisines, from Ängamat courtesy of the Scandinavian kitchen Aquavit, to Thai beef salad from Kittichai. Need even more incentive? These recipes are packed full of fresh produce that will help you detox from winter's (fabulous) comfort food, so, get ready to roll up your sleeves and try out some these spring eats in your own kitchen. We can't guarantee they'll look as professional as some of these shots, but we've got faith you'll do them proud. And, if you'd rather spend a little more time on the treadmill than in the kitchen, never fear: Give these amazing New York eateries a call and they'll be happy to whip up their dishes for you.
